*Every Indian felt proud seeing our contingent in full glory at Tokyo Olympics. Let us all congratulate and encourage our athletes representing India at the Olympics. To support our Olympics team on social media, the ‘Victory Punch Campaign’ has already begun. You also share your victory punch along with your team and cheer for India.
*Tomorrow is Kargil Vijay Diwas. Kargil war is such a symbol of valour and discipline of our armed forces which the entire world has witnessed. I would like you to read the thrilling story of Kargil. Let us all salute the brave hearts of Kargil.
*National Handloom Day is coming up. Let us do everything possible to further popularise handlooms in our lives. The successes of Khadi over the last few years is widely known.
*A recent study by MyGov found that about 75% of those who send their message & suggestions to Mann Ki Baat are below 35 years. It means Mann Ki Baat is being guided by the views of the youth of India. Mann Ki Baat is a medium where there is positivity & sensitivity.
*Nowadays, apple cultivation is gaining traction in Ukhrul, Manipur. Farmers here are now cultivating apples in orchards. These people also went to Himachal to take proper training. One of them is TS Ringphami Young. He is an aeronautical engineer by profession.
*After Covid-19, the cultivation of ‘Ber’ is increasing. My one such young friend is 32 years old Bikramjeet Chakma from Unakoti, Tripura. He has earned a sizable profit after starting ‘ber’ cultivation & motivating people for its cultivation.
*In Chandigarh’s Sector 29, Sanjay Rana runs a food stall and sells ‘Chhole Bhature’ on cycle. To eat his delicious ‘Chhole Bhature’ for free, you will have to show that you have taken the Covid-19 vaccine on the same day.
