    Democracy connects both India and Austria: Modi

    I got the opportunity to meet eminent Indologists: Modi

    We didn't give 'Yuddha', we gave the world 'Buddha': Modi

Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi visited Australia after his trip to Russia. Austria wasn’t visited by an Indian PM in  more than 40 years. PM Modi emphasised on preserving the cultural ties between the 2 countries. “This long wait has come to an end on a historic occasion. India and Austria are celebrating 75 years of their friendship. India and Austria are geographically on two different ends, but we have many similarities. Democracy connects both the countries. Our shared values are liberty, equality, pluralism, and respect for the rule of law. Our societies are multicultural and multilingual. Both countries celebrate diversity, and a big medium to reflect these values are elections,” Modi said in an interaction with the Indian diaspora in Vienna.

Modi highlighted the importance of public participation in improving international relations with a country. He even reportedly met professors in Vienna who are focussed on India as a topic of research. For thousands of years, we have been sharing our knowledge and expertise. “We didn’t give ‘Yuddha’ (war), we gave the world ‘Buddha’. India always gave peace and prosperity, and therefore India is going to strengthen its role in the 21st century. Around 200 years ago, Sanskrit was taught at Vienna’s university. In 1880, with the establishment of an independent chair for Indology, it got more push. Today, I got the opportunity to meet some eminent Indologists, it was quite apparent from their discussions that they had great interest in India,” Modi added.
