Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar to children selected for the award on Monday and asked them to support the “Vocal for Local” campaign, while also emphasising that the honours came with a great deal of responsibility for the recipients.
During a virtual event on Monday, the Prime Minister awarded the Bal Puraskar recipients certificates digitally using “blockchain technology,” according to an official statement. Twenty-nine children, 14 of whom were girls, were honoured for their exceptional abilities and achievements in six categories: innovation, academic achievement, sports, arts and culture, social service, and bravery.
Modi stated that the government’s policies place the youth at the forefront.
Modi praised the children for their contributions to the government’s Swachh Bharat campaign’s success and asked them to be ambassadors for the “Vocal for Local” campaign as well. “Just as you did for the cleanliness campaign, you should do so for the Vocal for Local campaign as well.” Make a list of products that aren’t made in India that you use at home. Then encourage your family members to use similar Indian-made products. “In this way, you will assist India in becoming an Atma Nirbhar nation,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.
“In children like Meedhansh, the government’s efforts to promote entrepreneurship are bearing fruit, and a tendency to become job providers rather than job seekers is becoming more pronounced,” Modi said during his interaction with Meedhansh Kumar, 11, who has developed a web portal for providing information about Covid-19.
While speaking with Tarushi Kumar, a 12-year-old Chandigarh girl whose Taekwondo skills have earned her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, the Prime Minister inquired about her thoughts on the balance between sports and studies, assuring her that the government is committed to providing all facilities to athletes.
The Prime Minister also discussed the unveiling of a hologram statue of freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose at the India Gate on Sunday, saying that the “biggest inspiration we get from Netaji is – duty and nation first.” “You must continue on the path of duty for the country, taking inspiration from Netaji,” he said.
“These honours have been bestowed upon you at a time when the country is commemorating its 75th anniversary of independence. You have been entrusted with a great deal of responsibility as a result of this award. Everyone’s expectations of you have risen as a result. You don’t have to be stressed by these expectations; instead, be inspired.”
He also asked the children to research Guru Gobind Singh’s sons’ bravery and sacrifice. “At a young age, the Sahibzadas had sacrificed themselves with great bravery. Their contribution to India’s civilization, culture, faith, and religion is unrivalled. The Prime Minister stated that “youngsters should learn more about the Sahibzadas and their sacrifice.”
He also praised the children for taking part in the Covid-19 vaccination campaign. “Indian children have demonstrated their modern and scientific temperament in the vaccination programme, with more than 40 million children receiving the Corona vaccine in just 20 days since January 3,” Modi said.
The Prime Minister praised the youths’ contributions to the startup and innovation industries. “Not only in India, but also outside India, your generation is leading this new era. Today, we are proud to see that the CEOs of all of the world’s major corporations are talking about them. What are the names of these CEOs? They are our own country’s children. Today, this country’s young generation is the most powerful in the world. We are proud today to see that the CEOs of all of the world’s major corporations are young Indians. When we see Indian youth succeeding in the startup world, we are proud,” he said.
On National Girl Child Day, the Prime Minister also greeted the country’s daughters. He also recalled the contributions of women freedom fighters in India’s struggle for independence, including Birbala Kanaklata Barua, Khudiram Bose, and Rani Gaidinilu. “From a young age, these fighters made the freedom of their country their life’s mission and dedicated themselves to it,” Modi said.
