Indian PM Modi hails Hindi radio show launch in Kuwait

Highlighting the expansion of Indian culture and heritage around the world, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that the Kuwait government has started a special program on its National Radio in Hindi and thanked the government and people of the country for taking this "wonderful initiative."

During the 111th episode of 'Mann Ki Baat', PM Modi played the audio clip of the radio program broadcast in Kuwait. In the audio clip, the radio jockey said that they talk about the ties between India and Kuwait and the culture of the two nations. He noted that the radio program broadcast for 30 minutes every Sunday in Hindi features different colours of Indian culture.

PM Modi said, "Kuwait government has started a special program on its National Radio and that too in Hindi. It is broadcast for half an hour every Sunday on 'Kuwait Radio'. It includes different colors of Indian culture. Our films and discussions on the art world are very popular among the Indian community there."

He added, "I have even been told that the local people of Kuwait are also taking a lot of interest in it. I heartily thank the Government and people of Kuwait for taking this wonderful initiative. Which Indian will not be happy with the way our culture is earning glory all over the world today!"

Earlier in April, the first-ever Hindi radio broadcast started in Kuwait. The Indian Embassy in Kuwait lauded Kuwait's Ministry of Information for starting a Hindi programme on Kuwait Radio on FM 93.3 and AM 96.3 every Sunday.

Referring to this year's International Day of Yoga celebrations across the world, PM Modi said, "This month, the entire world celebrated the 10th International Day of Yoga with full zeal and excitement. I also participated in the Yoga Programme organised in Kashmir." This year marked the 10th anniversary of the International Day of Yoga on June 21.

Since 2015, PM Modi has led the International Day of Yoga (IDY) celebrations at various iconic locations, including Kartavya Path in Delhi, Chandigarh, Dehradun, Ranchi, Lucknow, Mysuru, Kashmir and even the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
