  • Modi 21 जून से देश के हर राज्य में सभी नागरिकों के लिए भारत सरकार मुफ्त वैक्सीन मुहैया कराएगी-PM Modi-07/06/2021 - राज्य सरकारों को छूट क्यों नहीं दी जा रही? राज्य सरकारों को लॉकडाउन की छूट क्यों नहीं मिल रही? One Size Does Not Fit All जैसी बातें भी कही गईं। दलील ये दी गई कि संविधान में चूंकि Health-आरोग्य, प्रमुख रूप से राज्य का विषय है, इसलिए अच्छा है कि ये सब राज्य ही करें। इसलिए इस दिशा में एक शुरूआत की गई। भारत सरकार ने एक बृहद गाइडलाइन बनाकर राज्यों को दी ताकि राज्य अपनी आवश्यकता और सुविधा के अनुसार काम कर सकें। स्थानीय स्तर पर कोरोना कर्फ्यू लगाना हो, माइक्रो कन्टेनमेंट जोन बनाना हो, इलाज से जुड़ी व्यवस्थाएं हो, भारत सरकार ने राज्यों की इन मांगों को स्वीकार किया।
  • Address at the First Zionist Congress -Max Nordau-1897 - The Western Jew has bread, but man does not live on bread alone. The life of the Western Jew is no longer endangered through the enmity of the mob; but bodily wounds are not the only wounds that cause pain, and from which one may bleed to death. The Western Jew meant emancipation to be real liberation, and hastened to draw the final conclusions therefrom. But the nations made him fear that he erred in being so heedlessly logical.
  • ADDRESS TO PROVISIONAL PARLIAMENT by President of India — Dr. Rajendra Prasad—31 JANUARY 1950 - Session — First Session President of India — Dr. Rajendra Prasad Prime Minister of India — Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru Speaker, Provisional Parliament — Shri G.V. Mavalankar MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT, As I stand […]
  • Adolf Hitler’s Speech on 19th Anniversary of the Beer Hall Putsch-1942 - Where is this art of ruling, to say nothing of the art of leadership? It is only the unscrupulousness for robbery. And when this same man then says: "We have a fine instinct for idealism and material values." Yes indeed they have. They have destroyed idealism everywhere, and they have grabbed and taken possession of material worth and always grabbed and taken possession of it, too, by brutal force only. For in 300 years that nation has oppressed and yoked and subjected nation after nation, people after people, race after race.
  • All mankind is from Adam and Eve- Arabs has no superiority over a non-Arabs - All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab Farewell Pilgrimage. The below sermon(last by the Prophet) […]
  • USA Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You-John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address-1961 - We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans — born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage — and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.
  • Prime Minister गवर्नर्स कॉन्फ्रेंस के उद्घाटन सत्र में पीएम के संबोधन - ये शिक्षा नीति, सरकार की शिक्षा नीति नहीं है। ये देश की शिक्षा नीति है। जैसे विदेश नीति किसी सरकार की नहीं, देश की विदेश नीति होती है, रक्षा नीति किसी सरकार की नहीं, देश की रक्षा नीति होती है, वैसे ही शिक्षा नीति भी कौन सरकार है, किसकी सरकार है, कौन बैठा है, कौन नहीं बैठा है, उसके आधार पर नहीं चलती है, शिक्षा नीति देश की ही नीति है।
  • Modi नई राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति भारत की, उम्मीदों की पूर्ति का सशक्त माध्यम है-नरेंद्र मोदी - राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति के आने के बाद से ये भी चर्चा काफी तेज है कि बच्चों को पढ़ाने की भाषा क्या होगी? इसमें क्या बदलाव किया जा रहा है?यहाँ हमें एक ही वैज्ञानिक बात समझने की जरूरत है कि भाषा शिक्षा का माध्यम है, भाषा ही सारी शिक्षा नहीं है। किताबी पढ़ाई में फंसे-फंसे कुछ लोग ये फर्क ही भूल जाते हैं। इसलिए, जिस भी भाषा में बच्चा आसानी से सीख सके, चीजें Learn कर सके, वही भाषा पढ़ाई की भाषा होनी चाहिए। ये देखना जरूरी है कि जब बच्चे को हम पढ़ा रहे हैं, तो जो हम बोल रहे हैं, क्या वो समझ पा रहा है?
  • Prime Minister মধ্যপ্রদেশের হকারদের সঙ্গে প্রধানমন্ত্রীর মতবিনিময়-09/09/2020 - প্রযুক্তি ব্যবহার করে আমাদের যে খাদ্য-পানীয় ব্যবসায়ীরা রয়েছেন, তাঁদের আমরা স্ট্রিট ফুড ভেন্ডার বলি। তাঁদেরকে অনলাইন প্ল্যাটফর্ম প্রদানেরও প্রকল্প রচনা করা হয়েছে। অর্থাৎ, বড় বড় রেস্টুরেন্টগুলির মতোই ঠেলাওয়ালা, রেললাইনের দু'পাশের অস্থায়ী দোকানদার বন্ধুরা তাঁদের গ্রাহকদের অনলাইন ডেলিভারি করতে পারবেন। এই ধরনের পরিষেবা প্রদানের চেষ্টা চলছে এবং কিছুদিনের মধ্যেই আপনারা অবশ্যই এগিয়ে আসবেন এবং আমরা মিলেমিশে এই কাজকে এগিয়ে নিয়ে যাব। আমার দৃঢ় বিশ্বাস যে এ ধরনের প্রচেষ্টার মাধ্যমে ঠেলাওয়ালা, রেললাইনের দু'পাশের অস্থায়ী দোকানদার এবং ফেরিওয়ালার কাজ করা বন্ধুদের ব্যবসা বাড়বে, তাঁদের রোজগার আরও বৃদ্ধি পাবে।
  • সাহিত্যে আর্ট ও দুর্নীতি-Sahitye Art o durniti- Saratchandra Chatterjee - কিন্তু সাহিত্যের আর একটা দিক আছে, সেটা বুদ্ধি ও বিচারের বস্তু। যুক্তি দিয়ে আর একজনকে তা বুঝান যায়। আমি এই দিকটাই আজ বিশেষ করে আপনাদের কাছে উদ্ঘাটিত করতে চাই। বিষ্ণুশর্মার দিন থেকে আজও পর্যন্ত আমরা গল্পের মধ্য থেকে কিছু একটা শিক্ষা লাভ করতে চাই। এ প্রায় আমাদের সংস্কারের মধ্যে এসে দাঁড়িয়েছে। এদিকে কোন ত্রুটি হলে আর আমরা সইতে পারিনে। সক্রোধ অভিযোগের বান যখন ডাকে, তখন এই দিককার বাঁধ ভেঙ্গেই তা হুঙ্কার দিয়ে ছোটে। প্রশ্ন হয়, কি পেলাম, কতখানি এবং কোন্‌ শিক্ষালাভ আমার হল। এই লাভালাভের দিকটাতেই আমি সর্বপ্রথমে দৃষ্টি দিতে চাই।
  • Brief history of Finance and technology – Pablo Hernández de Cos-2019 - 19 November 2019 Good evening, and thank you for inviting me to speak at this year’s Euro Finance Week. Introduction As many of you know, I was appointed Chairman of the Basel […]
  • Constitutionality of rules regulating the financing of political campaigns – John Paul Steven - It is fundamental to the definition of our national political community that foreign citizens do not have a constitutional right to participate in, and thus may be excluded from, activities of democratic self-government. It follows, therefore, that the United States has a compelling interest for purposes of First Amendment analysis in limiting the participation of foreign citizens in activities of American democratic self-government, and in thereby preventing foreign influence over the U. s. political process.
  • Creative Thinking- A speech by Claude Shannon-1952 - I might mention is the idea of structural analysis of a problem. Suppose you have your problem here and a solution here. You may have two big a jump to take. What you can try to do is to break down that jump into a large number of small jumps. If this were a set of mathematical axioms and this were a theorem or conclusion that you were trying to prove, it might be too much for me try to prove this thing in one fell swoop.
  • Curse of Zaynab daughter of Ali & Fatimah to Yazid in Damascus-680 CE - Is this the custom of justice that you sit your women-folk and maids behind the veils, while you captivate and parade the daughters of the Prophet of Allah (s)? You snatch the veils off them and leave them open, while their enemies parade them from one town to another, and the inhabitants of every stream and town have a glimpse of them?
  • Daniel Webster on the Draft-1814 - Speech of Daniel Webster [The House had under consideration a bill proposing to draft men for service in the War of 1812.] MR. Webster. Mr. Chairman: After the best reflection which I […]
  • United Kingdom Elizabeth I’s Tilbury speech-9/8/1588 - Let tyrants fear. I have always so behaved myself that, under God, I have placed my chiefest strength and safeguard in the loyal hearts and good-will of my subjects; and therefore I am come amongst you, as you see, at this time, not for my recreation and disport, but being resolved, in the midst and heat of the battle, to live and die amongst you all; to lay down for my God, and for my kingdom, and my people, my honour and my blood, even in the dust
  • Enhancing Economic Engagement with Diaspora in and post Covid-19 world-Sanjay Bhattacharyya - The idea behind self-reliance or Aatmanirbharta is not to turn the country inwards, or into an isolationist country, but to the contrary, it is to ensure that India can emerge as the global nerve centre of the complex modern multinational supply chains. As External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar noted: "Foreign policy begins at home. A strong economy allows us to be heard in the world. A self-reliant India will have more to offer to the world”.
  • Farewell speech of Emperor Dhritarastra to the denizens of Kuru - I join my hands before you who are distinguished for loyalty. Here, I bow to you all. Ye sinless one, I, with Gandhari by my side, solicit your pardon now for anything done to you by those sons of mine, of restless understandings, stained by cupidity, and ever acting as their desires prompted.’ Thus addressed by the old monarch, all those citizens and inhabitants of the provinces, filled with tears, said nothing but only looked at one another
  • Cyber Crime,Cyber Security,Cyber Law FBI and Private Sector: Battling the Cyber Threat Together-Christopher Wray-28/01/2021 - At the FBI, we’ve been fighting the cyber threat for many years now. We began our early high-tech crime effort in the mid-1990s, and created our Cyber Division almost 20 years ago, in 2002. We’ve become known for our efforts to call out destabilizing and damaging cyber activity by nation-state actors, like the indictment last summer of two hackers working on behalf of the Chinese Ministry of State Security, stealing intellectual property from companies in the U.S. and around the world while also targeting dissidents who spoke out against the Communist Party.
  • AL-QURAN Final speech of the Holy Prophet of Islam at Mount Arafat-632 CE - PLACE: Uranah Valley of Mount Arafat, Mecca PERIOD: During the  Hajj wada [a few months before his death] of the year 632 C.E DATE: Ninth day of Dhul Hijjah, the 12th month […]
  • Government of India-Thomas Babington Macaulay-10/07/1833 - "Government of India"- A SPEECH DELIVERED IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS ON THE 10TH OF JULY 1833-by Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859)-I am naturally desirous to obtain the attention of the House while I attempt to defend the principles of the proposed arrangement. I wish that I could promise to be very brief; but the subject is so extensive that I will only promise to condense what I have to say as much as I can.
  • I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor-Great Dictator Speech-Chaplin - I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor That’s not my business I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone I should like to help everyone if possible Jew, Gentile, […]
  • Imam Al-Husayn’s Sermon before 700 people in Mina-678 CE - Do you know that the Prophet (s) said: "I am the head of all the children of Adam (a) and my brother, Ali (a), is the head of all Arabs, Fatima (a) is the head of all women in the Heaven, and my sons, Hasan and Husayn (a), are the heads of all young people in the Heaven?
  • Imam Sajjad(Grand son of Ali)cursed Kufans for their betrayal in Karbala Fight-680 CE - O people! I tell you in the name of Allah! Do you not know that you had written a letter to my father inviting him? You deceived him while pledging and promising to aid him and took the oath of allegiance to him. And in return you fought against him and abandoned him?
  • Inaugural Address by President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.- 20/01/2021 - Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal that we are all created equal and the harsh, ugly reality that racism, nativism, fear, and demonization have long torn us apart. Through the Civil War, the Great Depression, World War, 9/11, through struggle, sacrifice, and setbacks, our “better angels” have always prevailed.
  • India’s population is expected to grow to 1.52 billion by 2036 – VP Of India - Referring to the delivery of basic services, he said the country was facing many challenges with 20 per cent of population below the poverty line and an equal proportion illiterate. In this context, he stressed the need for people to plan their families. As Prime Minister Narendrabhai Modi had said in his Independence Day speech last year that those who follow the policy of small family contribute to the development of the nation, the Vice President said.
  • Modi Indian PM Modi’s opening remarks at 12th BRICS Summit-17/11/2020 - Both credibility and effectiveness of global governance institutions are being questioned. The main reason for this is that these did not change with time. These are still rooted in the thinking and reality of a world which was seen 75 years ago. India believes that reforms are a must in the UN Security Council. We expect support from our BRICS partners in this matter. Apart from the UN, many other international institutions are also not functioning according to current realities. Institutions like WTO, IMF, WHO must also reform.
  • Prime Minister Indian PM Narendra Modi’s address from Red Fort: 74th ID- August 15, 2020 - Enough is enough. What should be the mind-set of independent India? The mind-set of independent India should be ‘Vocal for Local’. We should take pride in our local products. If we do not praise and support our indigenous products, then how will they get an opportunity to flourish and improve, how will they gain strength? Come, let’s pledge that as we move towards the 75th year of our independence, we shall adopt the talisman of ‘Vocal for Local’ and together let's strengthen ourselves.
  • Is every good person suitable for management? - Because you are a weak person, be careful not to be the leader of even two people! This means that the weakness that the Prophet mentioned is a weakness in management. Therefore, he is saying that you are a person who do not have the skill for management. If you are the leader of two or more people, you cannot guide them properly to success. This is a lesson for us. We - not all of us, but some of us - are like this. As soon as a position is vacant, or maybe vacant soon, we immediately look forward to getting that position! Well, you should first consider if you can perform its responsibilities well, or not.
  • Is there any survival after death? -J. Krishnamurti-1980 - An individual is who is not fragmented, but since you are all fragmented you are not individuals. You are the result of the climate, etc., etc., with all its trappings. If that fact is soaked into your blood, that is a fact. You may consider yourself, but that's merely the expression of thought. Thought is common to all mankind, based on experience, knowledge, memory, stored up in the brain. Right? The brain is the centre of all the sensory responses, which is common to all mankind.
  • USA Jeff Bezos of Amazon- Speech before U.S House Committee on the Judiciary-2020 - The concept for Amazon came to me in 1994. The idea of building an online bookstore with millions of titles—something that simply couldn’t exist in the physical world—was exciting to me. At the time, I was working at an investment firm in New York City. When I told my boss I was leaving, he took me on a long walk in Central Park. After a lot of listening, he finally said, “You know what, Jeff, I think this is a good idea, but it would be a better idea for somebody who didn’t already have a good job.”
  • Judicial independence is an essential component of rule of law-Stephen Breyer - Hamilton knew that our Constitution establishes a democracy, but it does not establish a pure democracy. Rather, it establishes a democracy of a certain kind. It divides power, vertically between States and the federal government and horizontally among three federal branches so that no individuals or single branch of government can amass too much power
  • Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream Speech”[1963] - August 28, 1963 I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. Five score […]
  • USA Message of Abraham Lincoln to 2nd Session of 37th congress- 3/12/1861 - Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. Capital has its rights, which are as worthy of protection as any other rights.
  • Napoleon I’s speech to the French people-1797 - Napoleon Bonaparte-Speech to the Directory Delivered on December 10, 1797 CITIZENS, the French people, in order to be free, had kings to combat. To obtain a Constitution founded on reason, it had […]

  • On the Cult of Personality and Its Consequences-Khrushchev(1956) - During Lenin's life the central committee of the party- was a real expression of collective leadership of the party and of the Nation. Being a militant Marxist-revolutionist, always unyielding in matters of principle, Lenin never imposed by force his views upon his coworkers. He tried to convince; he patiently explained his opinions to others. Lenin always diligently observed that the norms of party life were realized, that the party statute was enforced, that the party congresses and the plenary sessions of the central committee took place at the proper intervals.
  • Only Israel in Middle East has ideals of freedom, democracy and rule of law-Stephen Harper-20/01/2014 - It is a story, essentially, of a people whose response to suffering has been to move beyond resentment and build a most extraordinary society, a vibrant democracy, a freedom-loving country with an independent and rights-affirming judiciary, an innovative, world-leading "start-up" nation.
  • Our enemy Islamic extremism targets our values and constitution -Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’ - Our enemy, Islamic extremism, that targets all our values and our constitution, does not only intend to cause death and pain – it also intends to divide our society. And this, we will not allow. We will not give room for their hatred. Our enemies never are the members of an entire religion. Our enemies never are all people coming from one certain country. No, our enemies are extremists and terrorists. There is definitely no place for them in our society. Because in our free society, there is no tolerance for intolerance.
  • President George Washington’s Farewell Speech -1796 - Though, in reviewing the incidents of my administration, I am unconscious of intentional error, I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors. Whatever they may be, I fervently beseech the Almighty to avert or mitigate the evils to which they may tend. I shall also carry with me the hope that my country will never cease to view them with indulgence; and that, after forty five years of my life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal, the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion, as myself must soon be to the mansions of rest.
  • Presidential address by Muhammad Ali Jinnah to the Muslim League Lucknow- 1916 - No mere conventional words are needed on my part to express my deep thanks for the great privilege you have conferred on me by selecting me as President of the Ninth Annual Session of the All-India Muslim League. The honour is the highest in the gift of the Muslim community, to which those alone may aspire who have given freely of their thought and time to the service of the communal cause. I am fully sensible of how little I have done to deserve such distinction, nor could I have the presumption to desire it with such a clear sense of my own unworthiness.
  • Principles of Americanism-speech by George Bissel-1940 - Basically Americanism has been defined as a desire to see one's country right and to be right one's self. I think Americanism is far deeper and more specific than that. As I see it, it is bedded deep in the doctrine of the old common law, "So use that which is yours that you wrong no man."
  • Drug Abuse Psychology of Human Misjudgment- speech by Charlie Munger - Harvard University -1995 I am very interested in the subject of human misjudgment, and Lord knows I’ve created a good bit of it. I don’t think I’ve created my full statistical share, […]
  • Rule of Law in South Africa-Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng-25/06/2013 - The judiciary is the third branch of government; the third arm of the state. There simply can be no state or government without the judiciary in a genuine constitutional democracy. To breathe life into the African dream that is inspired by the desire to break free from centuries of economic oppression, and to recapture the lost glory of Africa, the judiciary in Africa must be more alive to the enormous responsibilities it bears on its shoulders to contribute to the renaissance of Africa.
  • SLAVERY IN MASSACHUSETTS-Henry David Thoreau-1854 - The whole military force of the State is at the service of a Mr. Suttle, a slaveholder from Virginia, to enable him to catch a man whom he calls his property; but not a soldier is offered to save a citizen of Massachusetts from being kidnapped! Is this what all these soldiers, all this training, has been for these seventy-nine years past? Have they been trained merely to rob Mexico and carry back fugitive slaves to their masters?
  • Modi Speech of Indian PM at General Debate of 75th Session of UNGA 2020 - For how long will India be kept out of the decision-making structures of the United Nations? A country, which is the largest democracy of the world, A country with more than 18% of the world population, A country, which has hundreds of languages, hundreds of dialects, many sects, many ideologies, A country, which was a leading global economy for centuries and also one which has seen hundreds of years of foreign rule.
  • Speech of Muhammad Ali Jinnah on 03/06/1947 [Transfer of the Power] - Transfer of the Power JUNE 3 (1947) Broadcast Speech on 3rd June, 1947 from the All India Radio, New Delhi, giving his reactions to June-3 Plan I am glad that I am […]

  • Text of PM Modi`s Special Key Note Address at US-ISPF US-India Summit 2020 - For challenges in India, you have a Government that believes in delivering results. A government for which Ease of living is as important as the Ease of doing business. You are looking at a young country with 65 percent population less than 35 years old. You are looking at an aspirational country that has decided to take the nation to new heights.
  • Transboundary water conflicts related to International waterbody – Justice K. M. Kamrul Kader - There are 263 transboundary river basins in the world; many of them lack an agreement among the riparian states about how to share or to jointly manage the water resources. On a global level, there is no binding international agreement / convention on transboundary water in force. Even the most cordial and co-operative neighboring nations have found it difficult to achieve mutually acceptable arrangements to govern their transboundary surface waters, even in relatively humid regions where fresh water usually is found in sufficient abundance to satisfy most or all needs.
  • We Repudiate the Efforts of Irresponsible, Extremist Groups – Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller-1964 - The Republican Party fully respects the contribution of responsible criticism, and defends the right of dissent in the democratic process. But we repudiate the efforts of irresponsible, extremist groups, such as the Communists, the Ku Klux Klan, the John Birch Society and others, to discredit our Party by their efforts to infiltrate positions of responsibility in the Party, or to attach themselves to its candidates.
  • What would a Socialist Pakistan look like? –Tanvir Gondal  - Pakistan has huge resources which are not being tapped. In Balochistan there are estimated deposits of 1500 billion cubic feet of gas under the ground, and also vast reserves of coal. Why can’t they use these resources for the benefit of society? Instead, these valuable resources will be plundered by big foreign companies, aided and abetted by their local agents in the governments of Pakistan.
