I have done my very best in all the days since to be true to that pledge. As a result of these efforts, I am confident that the world is a safer place today, not only for the people of America but for the people of all nations, and that all of our children have a better chance than before of living in peace rather than dying in war.

एक समय था, जब भारत दुनिया के सबसे समृद्ध और वैभवशाली राष्ट्रों में गिना जाता था। भारत के नगरों से लेकर महलों तक, भारत के मंदिरों से लेकर मूर्तियों तक, भारत का वास्तु, भारत की विशेषज्ञता का उद्घोष करता था। सिंधु सभ्यता के नगर नियोजन से लेकर मौर्यकालीन स्तंभों और स्तूपों तक, चोल शासकों के बनाए भव्य मंदिरों से लेकर जलाशयों और बड़े बांधों तक, भारत का कौशल, विश्व भर से आने वाले यात्रियों को हैरान कर देता था। लेकिन सैकड़ों साल की गुलामी ने हमसे हमारा ये गौरव छीन लिया। एक ऐसा भी समय आ गया जब हम दूसरे देशों में हुए निर्माण को देखकर मुग्ध होने लग गए। 21वीं सदी का नया भारत, बुलंद हौसले से भरा हुआ भारत, अब गुलामी की उस सोच को पीछे छोड़ रहा है। आज भारत, प्राचीन काल की उस गौरवशाली धारा को एक बार फिर अपनी तरफ मोड़ रहा है।

I will suppose for a moment that you have conquered a part of Europe, and have become its rulers. I ask whether you would equally trust the men of that country. This was a mere supposition.

But when the time of the Moghal family came and mutual trust was established, the Hindus were given very high appointments.


There is one gentleman whose claim to fame is only money; his second claim to fame is he uses that money. His third claim to fame is that they use this money successfully to take on central institutions like banking. He forgets India is the mother of democracy; the largest democracy. How dare he think about it. His backers, his beneficiaries, his fiscal parasites as I said earlier, or his sleeper cells; we need total support to expose that.
