गुरुवर टैगौर ने अपनी कविता ‘नूतोन जुगेर भोर’ में कहा है-
“चोलाय चोलाय बाजबे जोयेर मेरी,
पाएर बेगेई पोथ केटे जाय कोरिश ना आर देरी” यानि
“हर आगे बढ़ने वाले कदम पर घोषनाद होगा।
दौड़ते पाँव ही नया रास्ता बना देंगे।
अब देरी मत करो”: PM @narendramodi

Defeat the mind, win the victory of the mind: Narendra Modi
said that sometimes time also tests us, takes our test. Many times, many difficulties come together, but we have also experienced that in such a test, our gratitude also guarantees a bright future. It is said here – losers of the mind, victories of the mind, that is, our willpower, our willpower determines our path forward. The one who already accepts the new opportunities rarely comes. He said that our solidarity, to face the biggest disaster together, our determination, our willpower, our great strength, all these things are our great strength as a nation. He said that medicine for trouble is strong.
Time to turn coronavirus disaster into an opportunity
He said in the program that I can see this feeling on your face today, in the efforts of crores of countrymen. The crisis of Corona remains in the whole world, the whole world is fighting it. Our country is fighting it with the Corona Warriors, but in the midst of all this, every countryman is also full of the resolve that this disaster is to be converted into an opportunity, we also have to make it a big turning point for the country. On the turning point, he said that this is actually Self Reliant India. He said that this sense of self-reliance has been lived by every Indian as an ambition over the years, but still a big wish, a big wish, has been in the mind of every Indian, has been in the brain. He said that there has been a big reason that in the last 5-6 years, the goal of India’s self-reliance has been paramount in the policy and practice of the country.
How should the country become the exporter of the products to be imported,
he stressed that everything that the countries are forced to import, how they should be made in India and how India should become the exporter of the same products in the future We have to work faster. We do not only buy things from these small business people, do not give any money, but they also reward their hard work, increase respect. We do not even know how much this affects their heart, how proud they feel. The decisions made recently for farmers and rural economies have freed the agricultural economy from years of slavery. Now the farmers of India have got the freedom to sell their produce, their produce anywhere in the country.
ये समय अवसर को पहचानने का है, खुद को आज़माने का है और नई बुलंदियों की ओर जाने का है।
ये अगर सबसे बड़ा संकट है, तो हमें इससे सबसे बड़ी सीख लेते हुए, इसका पूरा लाभ भी उठाना चाहिए: PM @narendramodi
