Former Vice President Venkaiah Naidu while addressing the gathering at the 3rd National Summit on Leadership in Positivity on December 15 at the Civil Service Officers Institute, Delhi said, “I am thrilled to come to this programme. Our society’s environment is continuously becoming negative. In such a time, positivity should be promoted”. He further said we must bring all sections of the country together.
Necessary to promote positivity
Speaking about this programme, Venkaiah Naidu said that it will become a great medium to bring positive people together on one platform. He further said that many institutions nationwide are working together with this mission. This is an essential step for the development of the nation. We are getting respect all over the world. However, India still faces many challenges. More than 28 per cent of people here are still below the poverty line. Unemployment is also a big problem today. There is a big difference between urban and rural people.
He further said that after retirement, he wants to visit every corner of the country and meet the people. A large number of them are youth, farmers and women. Apart from this, he mentioned another essential thing. He said that people should understand the value of their vote and that the public representative, MP, MLA or Minister, is doing the public’s work. If they are not doing so, the people should be ousted from power with the power of vote. He said we only get a positive atmosphere and thoughts from our home. If the behaviour of the elders in our family is to help others, then we also try to adopt that behaviour. Our Sanatan Dharam, books such Ramayana and Bhagavad Gita, teach us to do actual deeds and good to others. Hence, our religious texts should be available to many people. This is Ram’s country. Where will it be if there is no discussion about Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita, etc. here?
Apart from this, Venkaiah Naidu said that this Indian land does not belong to the Mughal invaders. They came here and looted our power. Today, there is a need for the youth of the country to be taught about our brave freedom fighters Mangal Pandey and Rani of Jhansi and similarly about the freedom fighters from all the areas of the country. This will be essential to take our youth from negativity to positivity.
Positivity is eternal
Additionally, Union Minister Parshottam Rupala, who attended the event, said that this is the first time he has seen that a programme can be organised on positivity. Apart from this, he said that our religious texts teach the welfare of the people. If positive people gather, then hostile forces are sure to be defeated. Apart from this, he said that the tradition of joint families in the country works to carry forward the message of positivity. Hence, we should live in a joint family.
In addition, Parshottam Rupala said that before doing any work, we think about what will happen to us if we do so. If someone needs help, we think about what will be our benefit if we help him. He said that we should come out of this small mentality. He said that Bhagwan has made us like this so that we can help people. Parshottam Rupala further said that many people in the country are poor; if we look at ourselves compared to them, we are in good condition by the grace of Bhagwan. We should take whatever steps, whether small or big, to bring a smile to people’s faces. Apart from this, he said that our Sanatan Dharam always gives the message of the welfare of the people.
Positivity a celebration
Besides this, Dr Dnyaneshwar Mulay, founder of the Movement of Positivity, said positivity is a celebration of joy. Indian culture has given the concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam to the world; the whole world is our family. This means that we must care about all the people of the world. When we think about the world, we should also think about the people of India, the people of our street and locality; they are also a part of our family.
Dr Dnyaneshwar Mulay said that India currently faces three main challenges. The first challenge is to move forward as a world leader in front of the world. The second challenge is to join UNO as a permanent member. Apart from this, the third challenge is to protect ourselves from poverty, environment and war.
He said that if we overcome these three challenges, India will soon establish its identity as a world leader. Moment of Positivity is a campaign to bring the whole world on the path of goodness and bind people together. Every person has some goodness in him. We should use our goodness to bring happiness to the lives of others.
Difficulty becomes easy with positivity
In this programme, Captain Yogendra Singh Yadav, who was awarded Paramvir Chakra, said that positivity/good thinking provides strength to overcome every difficulty. He further said that he was saved from being martyred in the Kargil war because of this positivity. He said that 17 bullets hit him during the Kargil war, yet he did not give up his positivity. He said that he had only one thought running through his mind: no matter what happens today, he has to hoist the tricolour flag by destroying the enemies.
He said that due to this positive thinking, he continued fighting the enemies even in his injured condition, and ultimately, India won the Kargil war. Yogendra Singh Yadav says that our positive thinking gives us a different identity in the world. The tradition of doing good to others dates back thousands of years in India. This habit of ours will become a significant medium to recognise us as a world guru after some time. Yogendra Singh Yadav says that the youth of India have immense power. The youth of our country can do the work of changing the destiny of the country. Hence, we need to provide the proper guidance to our youth.
Self-reliant India and self-reliant Indian women
In this programme, Dr Ranju Jha Alex, Vice President of Marriott International, said everyone must make women self-reliant in India. Even after 75 years of independence, women have to face many problems to move forward. She said that she had to face many struggles to enter the hotel industry, but due to positive thinking and hard work, she has created a distinct identity for himself in this industry.
Best effort always
Former Supreme Court Judge Justice Madan B Lokur said he started practising law in 1977. He said that troubled people always came to him when he started practising law. Justice Lokur says we should do our best and leave everything to God. He said that at one time, many petitions started coming to the Supreme Court regarding problems related to social justice in the country, so he tried to form a Social Justice Bench in the Supreme Court, and this bench was established. Justice Lakur says that we should always try to do something good.
Apart from this, Drums Sivamani, Indian percussionist said that he has inherited music but has worked very hard to succeed in this field. It is only because of positive thinking that he has reached this position today. He said that his family was not happy with his work. Apart from this, Sivamani says that music can be a big step in taking the world towards positivity. Shivani says that if we ever get disturbed or negativity surrounds us, we should listen to good songs.
Tamil Nadu Education Department Secretary Anand Patil said that he is part of the Movement of Positivity. Dr Dnyaneshwar Mulay had inspired him to join civil service. Anand Patil says that we should move forward positively, and when we do good to someone, it also does good to us.
A YouTube channel called “Jaan Gana Ki Baat” was also launched in this programme. Many people and school children participated in it.
The Movement of Positivity has been trying to promote positivity (goodness) in the country for the last several years. Under this campaign, every needy person has to be helped. Under this campaign, every capable person has to give the message of moving forward in life to at least one person.
