NEW DELHI: During the 100th episode of Mann Ki Baat, PM Modi took a question from Audrey Azoulay, Director General of Unesco, on how India intends to put culture and education at the top of the international agenda at a time it is chairing the G20 grouping of nations.
“Unesco is working with its member states to ensure that everyone in the world has access to quality education by 2030. With the largest population in the world, could you please explain the Indian way to achieving this objective,” Azoulay asked.
Both issues are “favourite topics” of Man Ki Baat, Modi replied. India, he said, has a rich history of education as well as conservation and promotion of culture.
“In this direction the country is making commendable efforts, be it the national education policy, the option of studying in regional languages or technology integration in education,” he said, citing the efforts made by the Government to check dropout rates and initiatives by individuals who contribute to teaching those in need.
“I firmly believe that significant changes can be brought through collective efforts. This year, in which we are moving forward in the Azadi Ka Amrit Kaal, we are also presiding over the G20,” PM Modi said.
“This is also one of the reasons why our resolve to enrich diverse global cultures along with education has become stronger,” he added.
