Our economies and security are being shaped increasingly outside national boundaries, in the domain of outer space, seas or cyberspace. The era of globalization and growing power shifts between and within societies call for greater cooperation among nations and new models of global engagement and governance.
India is in an exciting transition. A nation constituting one-sixth of humanity is undergoing an economic and social transformation on an extraordinary scale. It is taking place in a democratic and federal framework; in the midst of growing political pluralism and social diversity; and, in the context of continuing debate on equity, opportunity, and sustainability.
Our policies are not only concerned about the growth of the aggregate, but also with the welfare of the individual. It is a complex political and economic challenge. We need to continue with a high growth trajectory and also make it more inclusive. This calls for an innovative, dynamic and sustainable engagement with the world around us.
Today, the world is troubled not so much by the specter of a major war, but by conflicts within and between societies, cultures, religions, peoples, and nations. Promoting the values of pluralism, mutual respect and understanding is a great challenge of our times, and one that is vital for global stability and security.
India has been guided since ancient times by the ideals of Vasudhaiva Kuttambakam – the world is one family – Sarva Dharma Sambhava– all faiths are equal. India has been challenged by forces of intolerance, discrimination, and violence, but time and again, when they have been tested the most, Indians have spoken as one people and one nation.
