ET GBS 2023: India has already achieved the milestone of becoming a 5 trillion economy way before 2025, says Samir Jain

Samir Jain, the Managing Director, and VC of Times Group, began the speech by expressing his heartfelt gratitude to the PM for gracing the event with his presence at the onset of Shivratri. The auspiciousness and sacredness of this festival have religious significance throughout the country. “Shiva” becomes emblematic of understanding your true self and killing one’s hubris (ego) to achieve true liberation.

His philosophy of “Lok Kalyan,”  which was preached by Shiva in his teachings, is not just limited to the welfare of one’s family or one’s own selfish needs. He applauds Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi for taking on the onus of improving the country’s economic and socio-political conditions since his youth. He elucidates how he is unnervingly devoted to serving society, the nation, and now the world as a whole with G-20.

Samir Jain further highlights how the leadership under Mr. Narendra Modi’s governance has been commendable. Furthermore, he validates this by stating instances of how the PM has been able to fulfill his promises to the country’s citizens. For instance, the PM stated that by 2025, India’s overall GDP would be $5 trillion. But Samir Jain proudly corroborated that it has already been achieved this year. He attributes the success of the nation to the PM’s altruistic and selfless demeanour. ‘

Furthermore, Samir Jain talks about how the government has been able to integrate technology to accelerate the pace of growth. AI, blockchain, digital manufacturing, etc., are no longer mere terms, but they have been studied thoroughly to make the world a better place to live.

Thereafter, he talks about the virtues of “patience” and “humbleness”. Samir Jain reiterates the need to let go of pride and ego to achieve ultimate success in life. “Vasudev Kutumbkam”, the concept of “One World, One Family”, is further glorified by Samir Jain to highlight the leadership qualities of the PM.

He ends the speech with a ray of hope and optimism for the citizens of the country. India is already a nation of prosperity and abundance, and it will only grow exponentially in the upcoming years. The idea of unitedness and oneness is a recurring theme throughout.
