The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) organised a special event at Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra in Delhi today, to felicitate delegates from 188 countries, who participated in the Kumbh Mela at Prayagraj.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said he was happy to meet the delegates who have just returned from the Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj.

He said that until one actually visits the Kumbh Mela, one cannot appreciate completely, what a great heritage it is. He said that this tradition had continued uninterrupted for thousands of years.

He said the Kumbh is as much about social reform as it is about spirituality. He said that the Kumbh had been a forum for discussion among spiritual leaders and social reformers, to chart a roadmap for the future, and monitor progress.

The Prime Minister said that the effort was now to blend modernity and technology, with faith, spirituality, and cultural consciousness, at the Kumbh Mela. He said that the world would recognise India, both for its modernity, and for its rich heritage. He thanked the delegates from across the world, and said that their participation had also been an important part of the success of the Kumbh.

The Prime Minister described the Indian Parliamentary elections as a “Kumbh of Democracy.” He said that just like the Kumbh Mela, Indian Parliamentary elections, with their huge scale and complete impartiality, could be a source of inspiration for the world at large. He said people from across the world must also come to see India conduct its Parliamentary election.
