Protection of nature, environment is embedded in our traditions: PM Modi
Highlighting the importance of water conservation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said protection of nature and the environment is embedded in India's traditions and sanskar. Addressing the "Mann Ki Baat" radio programme, PM Modi pointed out that he faced water scarcity during his childhood, and said, "We used to yearn for rainfall and therefore to save every single drop of water has been part of our traditions, our sanskar". "Friends, the protection of nature and environment are embedded in our culture, in our daily lives. At the same time, rains and the monsoon have always shaped our thoughts, our philosophy and our civilization," added Prime Minister.
