In the recent past when the world needed medicines, India did whatever it could to provide them. India is humbled that Made-in-India vaccines are going around the world. We want to heal as well as help humanity. This is exactly what Gita teaches us, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi today.

While speaking at the virtual launch of the Kindle version of Swami Chidbhavananda's Bhagavad Gita, PM Modi further said that "anybody who is inspired by Gita will always be compassionate by nature and democratic in temperament."

"At the core of Aatmnirbhar Bharat is to create wealth and values, not only for ourselves but for the larger humanity. We believe that an Aatmnirbhar Bharat is good for the world," PM Narendra Modi said.

Forty-nine more countries will be supplied in the coming days, ranging from Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean to Africa, South-East Asia and the Pacific Islands.
