PM Modi thanks Kuwait govt for launching Hindi radio show

Highlighting the expansion of Indian culture and heritage around the world, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that the Kuwait government has started a special program on its National Radio in Hindi and thanked the government and people of the country for taking this “wonderful initiative.”

In the 111th episode of ‘Mann Ki Baat,’ PM Modi played the audio clip of the radio program broadcast in Kuwait. In the audio clip, the radio jockey said that they talk about the ties between India and Kuwait and the culture of the two nations. He noted that the radio program, broadcast for 30 minutes every Sunday in Hindi, features different colors of Indian culture.

“The Kuwait government has started a special program on its National Radio, and that too in Hindi. It is broadcast for half an hour every Sunday on ‘Kuwait Radio.’ It includes different colors of Indian culture. Our films and discussions on the art world are very popular among the Indian community there”, the Pm said.

“I have even been told that the local people of Kuwait are also taking a lot of interest in it. I heartily thank the Government and people of Kuwait for taking this wonderful initiative. Which Indian will not be happy with the way our culture is earning glory all over the world today!”

Earlier in April, the first-ever Hindi radio broadcast started in Kuwait. The Indian Embassy in Kuwait lauded Kuwait’s Ministry of Information for starting a Hindi program on Kuwait Radio on FM 93.3 and AM 96.3 every Sunday.

During the 111th episode of ‘Mann Ki Baat,’ PM Modi also said that the Turkmenistan President unveiled the statue of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of their national poet in May.

The Prime Minister said that the Indian community in Suriname celebrates Indian Arrival Day and Pravasi Diwas on June 5 every year. He further said that nearly 6,000 Indian-origin people in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are proud of their Indian heritage.

“Nearly 6,000 Indian-origin brothers and sisters are living in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. They are proud of their Indian heritage. On June 1, the way they all celebrated Indian Arrival Day with great jubilation reflects their emotions. Every Indian feels proud when we see such an expansion of Indian heritage and culture worldwide,” he underscored.
