G20 Summit: Nalanda University’s image forms backdrop at dinner hosted by President Murmu
G20 Summit: An image of Nalanda Mahavihara (Nalanda University), an ancient monastic university, formed the backdrop at the greeting area where President Droupadi Murmu and prime minister Narendra Modi welcomed the G20 delegates at a ceremonial dinner hosted by her on Saturday.
The mahavihara, which falls in current Bihar, was in activity between fifth 100 years and twelfth hundred years. Its legacy dates back to Mahavira and Buddha’s time, demonstrating ancient India’s progress in fostering scholarship and knowledge dissemination. The picture of Nalanda Mahavihara, which reflects old India’s headway towards dispersing information and shrewdness, conveys G20 logo on one side and the subject of India’s administration of the gathering – – ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ – One Earth. One group. One Future’ – – on the other.
At the beautifully decorated Bharat Mandapam at the entrance with the Nalanda Mahavihara in the background, both Modi and Murmu welcomed the heads of state and other leaders. The prime minister was also seen describing the significance of the university to some of the leaders of the G20, including UK PM Rishi Sunak.
Officials noted that it adheres to the fundamental democratic principles of diversity, meritocracy, freedom of thought, collective governance, autonomy, and knowledge sharing. Rumored as quite possibly of the earliest global college on the planet, Nalanda is a living demonstration of the persevering through soul of India’s high level instructive pursuit and its obligation to fabricate an agreeable world local area, lining up with India’s G20 Administration subject, Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.
