“The truth is that we are unaware that a large segment of Pakistan wants good relations with India because they see us as a neighboring country with a lot of development, growing industry, and rich culture,” Poet and Author Javed Akhtar said.
“The love for the nation, city, and school is a natural feeling, and there is no bleak doubt in it,” he said at the second edition of the “Ideas of India” Summit. It is natural for anyone to love the country in which they were born. There is a problem if everyone feels the same way. For instance, in sports, there is a separate anthem for every team and there is always a devotion on their faces filled with love. It is impossible for a person not to worship their anthem and experience goosebumps.”
“As members of society and country, we owe something to it,” Akhtar added. Because I was born as a human being, I owe it to humanity to contribute.”
The theme of the ABP Network’s “Ideas of India” Summit 2023 was “Learning from a Legend, Lessons, Good and Bad.” The summit brought together policymakers, cultural ambassadors, industry experts, celebrities, and business leaders to discuss India’s critical role amid global churn and shifting dynamics. Because ABP Network is a leading multi-language channel with a reach of 535 million people in India, this summit provides one of the largest platforms for the brightest minds from various sectors to express their views.
