In a significant event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled four books that highlight the accomplishments of India’s G20 presidency. The book launch took place at the G20 University Connect Finale and marks a significant achievement in showcasing India’s successful tenure as the G20 presidency.
One of the books, titled ‘Showcasing Indian Culture at G-20,’ provides an insightful glimpse into the rich tapestry of Indian culture that was presented to the G20 delegates throughout the country during India’s presidency.
India’s G20 Presidency, under the guidance of Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) led by Joint Secretary MEA and Deputy Director General ICCR Abhay Kumar and Director General of ICCR Kumar Tuhin, orchestrated over 300 cultural programs featuring more than 17,000 artists across over 60 locations within the country.
This endeavour allowed India to spotlight its diverse cultural heritage, including performing arts, visual arts, heritage sites, and culinary traditions, demonstrating the nation’s cultural richness and promoting cross-cultural understanding among G20 member nations.
During India’s G20 presidency, historical events were hosted in every state and union territory of India, providing each region with a unique opportunity to showcase its cultural treasures and traditions.
Beyond cultural diplomacy, India’s G20 presidency also emphasized its economic potential, especially in cultural and tourism sectors, elevating the country’s global stature.
The G20 University Connect initiative, a part of this presidency, aimed to bolster awareness of India’s G20 leadership among the nation’s youth and encourage their active participation in various G20 events.
In addition to “Showcasing Indian Culture at G-20,” the Prime Minister also unveiled three other publications on this occasion: “The Grand Success of G20 Bharat Presidency: Visionary Leadership, Inclusive Approach,” “India’s G20 Presidency: Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,” and “Compendium of G20 University Connect Programme.”
These books are now accessible to the public on the G20India website and can also be downloaded as ebooks via the G20India application.
