Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that Visva-Bharati and Santiniketan are trying their best to fulfill the dream of Rabindranath Tagore. This Visva-Bharati is the selfish form of Gurudev's thought and philosophy. From the independence movement to the construction of a new India, this Visva-Bharati has given strength to the country in many ways.
Prime Minister Modi further said that this goal of Rabindranath Tagore is the foundation of a self-reliant India. He wanted to make the country's agriculture, trade, industry and literature self-sufficient. We should move forward with this in mind. This Visva-Bharati of Rabindranath Tagore is the school of learning to create ideal people. Its role in rural development is undeniable.
