It is time for ‘Maha Akhand Bharat’, says Times Group vice-chairman Samir Jain | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Samir Jain, the vice-chairman of the Times Group, on Thursday gave a clarion call for the establishment of a “Maha Akhand Bharat” riding on India’s growing popularity across the globe.
Addressing the Times Now Summit, Samir Jain said the concept of “Akhand Bharat” which is now a history should emerge in a new form.
“This is not the time of Mahabharat. Akhand Bharat is history. This is the time of Maha Akhand Bharat,” he said in the presence of Union home minister Amit Shah.
The Times Group vice-chairman urged the Union home minister and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to build “Maha Akhand Bharat” under their leadership.
Elaborating upon his concept of ‘Maha Akhand Bharat’, Samir Jain emphasized that it’s not about political boundaries, but it’s about India’s cultural and spiritual influence.
Stating that the word “Maha” is unique, he cited the example of England which had used the word “Great” 400 years ago and went on to rule the world with violence just because of its strong resolve.
“Till the last century it was England’s influence on the world, but this century will be India’s century because we have not used violence to win over the world,” he said.
“We have resolved to influence the world by preaching and demonstrating non violence, by our culture, by our religion, by our work ethics which got a new dimension when Prime Minister Modi renamed Raj Path to Kartavya Path,” Samir Jain said.
The Times Group vice-chairman cited the growing influence of India across the globe to buttress his point of “Maha Akhand Bharat.”
“When we visit foreign countries, in colleges, in temples, in homes India’s culture, courses of our scriptures, our cultural songs, our dances and our ayurvedic food are very common. Our ancient scriptures are also popular in these countries. There is an increase in spiritual discourse. Gita, Ashtavakra, Yog Vashisht, Patanjali Sutra these are being taught in many colleges. I have seen that there is an increase in this trend. This is our influence, the spread of our culture,” he said.
