Prime Minister Narendra Modi has encouraged the entire India to dream big and has shown the world that dreams can be achieved if pursued with determination and persistence, said Taranjit Singh Sandhu, Indian Ambassador to the USA, at the international launch of two books on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at ‘Vishwa Sadbhavana’ event organised by the NID Foundation at the City of Chicago, the United States of America.

Eminent people from the USA and Indian Diaspora including Thought Leaders, Entrepreneurs, members of US Senate, Corporate leaders, educationists, Spiritual Leaders, including senior US senator Ron Johnson, Indian spiritual leader Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Dr Debbie Ford, Chancellor, University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Robin Vos, Speaker of Wisconsin State Assembly, S. Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chief Patron, NID Foundation and Chancellor, Chandigarh University, prominent American businessman Darshan Singh Dhaliwal and Indian Member of Parliament Hans Raj Hans.

Addressing the gathering, Ambassador Taranjit Singh Sandhu said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visionary approach, his leadership qualities and above all his humility and love for humanity has established him as a global leader in true senses.

“As the head of 1.4 billion citizens, our Prime Minister has encouraged each of us to dream big. In a real sense, he has gone on and has shown us that these dreams can be achieved if pursued with determination and persistence as seen in India’s rise on the global map. Let us all continue to dream big and work passionately towards achieving those dreams,” he exhorted the members of the Indian diaspora in the audience.

Noting that the Indo-US partnership has only been strengthened with PM Modi at the helm of India’s affairs, Ambassador Sandhu said, “The Prime Minister understands the potential of India-US relationship and has played an important role in building the trust between the two countries. In the USA, the PM saw a very close friend and a strong partner, critical to transforming the dreams and the development aspirations of nearly 1.4 billion Indians into reality. PM Modi has shaped this relationship with his firm vision and showed that tangible outcomes are possible with focussed and regular actions. The United States has designated India as a Major Défense Partner, which is the basis for our strong collaboration in Defence and strategic sector. India and the USA do more bilateral military exercises with each other, today than with any other country.”

Ambassador Sandhu said that Modi has been impacting the global decisions in developed nations and at the same time been the strong voice of developing nations. “Be it the act of providing the entire world with Covid-19 vaccines, relief missions in countries such as Afghanistan or hand holding nations in education or space research; be it his stance during COP26 Global Leaders’ Summit in Glasgow or during World Economic Forum’s Davos Summit, Narendra Modi has truly shown the world the way forward,” said the Ambassador.

Ambassador Sandhu, along with spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravishankar also internationally released two books depicting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unique and hugely successful governance, and his love and affection for humanity in general and Indians in particular, irrespective of region or religion.

Brought out by NID Foundation, the book ‘Heartfelt-The Legacy Of Faith’ documents Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s belief in the Sikh Guru’s and their teachings, and his earnest efforts for enabling justice and prosperity and delivering upon the long-overdue mainstays of the Sikh community. The other book, ‘Modi@20: Dreams Meet Delivery’ by famed Oncologist in America Dr Bharat Barai, is a compilation of chapters by intellectual and domain experts, providing with an expansive exploration into the fundamental transformation of Gujarat and India over the last 20 year due to his unique kind of Governance.

First to be organised offshore, the Vishwa Sadbhavana was the latest in the series of such events organised by the NID foundation and picks up from the legacy of last event held at New Delhi in April this year, wherein a contingent of 138 highly decorated Sikhs from India and abroad met the Hon’ble Prime Minister at his official residence.

In his address, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar said that Sadbhavana means wellness, well-being, and uniting people and Sadbhavana is what this world needs the most today. Sri Sri, who was the guest of honour at the event, underlined the Vishwa Sadbhavana event as ‘something noteworthy’ and said that the event has come at a time when the entire world is looking at modern India to bring peace across the globe.

Sri Sri said that Sikh community has been the backbone of Indian culture and that everyone must try to imbibe the valour and compassion that is unique to Sikh community. Sri Sri hailed the NID foundation for coming up with the book ‘Heartfelt: The Legacy of Faith’ which he said will bring to light to our society the great achievements of the current government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Speaking on the occasion, Ron Johnson noted that the US-Indo bilateral relationships have attained new depth and momentum ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi has come to power in India.

“The USA has always considered India as its natural ally. There is so much that the two countries are doing together and will continue to do together. The two countries are continuously deepening the major defence partnership, encouraging economic engagement, and expanding the partnership on global health, pandemic preparedness, and critical and emerging technologies,” said the senior senator from Wisconsin.

S. Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chief Patron, NID Foundation hailed Prime Minister Modi as an illustrious leader, highly experienced strategist but above all a great humanist and expressed gratitude for the pro-Sikh decision under the current dispensation. Sandhu said that the book ‘Heartfelt-The Legacy Of Faith’ by the NID Foundation is an honest attempt at documenting the facts of the history of the Sikh community and the teachings and philosophies of the Sikh Gurus.
