A strong sense of nationhood is needed to enable the prosperity and well-being of those left out of the growth cycle of India, said Sadhguru, the founder of Isha foundation, in his Independence Day message.
Encouraging people to participate in the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign, Sadhguru said, “Tiranga, the symbol of Beloved Bharat, unifies us beyond region, religion, caste and creed. May this symbol of our nationhood flutter in our hearts and minds and propel us towards our Vision of a strong, prosperous and benevolent Bharat.”
He pointed out that despite a huge amount of progress, a large section of people has been left out of the country's growth cycle.
“There has been a huge amount of progress, but at the same time, nearly 350–400 million people have been left out of this growth cycle, with many of them still below the poverty line. If we have to get everyone included in this new India story, if we have to get Bharat to become a Bhavya Bharat, it is most important that every citizen in the country has equal opportunities and the same possibilities for growth,” Sadhguru said.
According to him, our sense of nationhood should be so strong that we will be able to drive ourselves out of the many pitfalls to make India a prosperous nation.
“Prosperity is not just about wealth; prosperity is about well-being for every human being who lives in that geography which we right now call as Bharat,” he added.
