Mann ki Baat: PM discusses ‘People’s Padma’, recommends this book


Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered his first Mann Ki Baat of the year 2023.

The ‘People’s Padma’ movement, which marked a paradigm shift in Jan-Bhagidari for building what the ruling party touts as ‘New India’ was highlighted by PM Modi in Mann Ki Baat on Sunday.

“Tribal life is different from city life, it also has its own challenges. Despite this, tribal societies are always eager to preserve their traditions,” said Prime Minister Modi. “Various people from tribal areas – painters, musicians, farmers, artisans – have been conferred the Padma awards. I encourage all citizens to read their inspiring stories.”

“Many great personalities who have worked on tribal languages like Toto, Ho, Kui, Kuvi and Manda have received Padma Awards. It is a matter of pride for all of us. People working with Siddi, Jarwa, and Onge tribes have also been awarded this time,” he added.

Padma awards were given to several unsung heroes who have made significant contributions in various fields. Dilip Mahalanabis, who pioneered the use of ORS, received the Padma Vibhushan award. While unsung heroes such as Ratan Chandra Kar, Hirabai Lobi, and Munishwar Chander Dawar were among the 25 individuals who received the Padma Shri award.

“Today, when we are discussing our Republic Day during the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, I will also mention an interesting book here. “This book is India – The Mother of Democracy,” he said.
