The winners of the third Bharat Ko Janiye (BKJ) Quiz who recently visited India shared their experience on their enriching visit and praised the country for its fast development in various fields including digital revolution.
As part of it, BKJ Yatra was organized for the winners to experience India and its progress in different sectors which was held from August 10-16 this year. They visited several leading government institutions. During their tour, they got first-hand experience of the cultural heritage and diversity of India.
“Got an opportunity to visit several government offices including Doordarshan, Invest India Programme, UIDAI-Aadhar, the National Yoga Institute, the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya, and the war memorial,” said Varun Chayapathi from Germany.
Echoing similar views Dhairesh Patel from New Zealand said,” The visit involved visiting several leading government institutions, meeting senior government officials, and touring the cultural heritage monuments.”
They also witnessed the 77th Independence Day Celebrations at Red Fort. External Affairs Minister S. Jaishnkar hosted a high tea for the winners of the Bharat Ko Janiye Quiz.
“We were able to meet EAM Jaishankar, watch the Independence Day Celebrations at Red Fort, and visit many cultural sites in India,” said Shanta Jyoti Dookran, from Trinidad and Tobago.
“This Programme was organized in a nice way where we got a first-hand experience of Indian heritage which is well known in the whole world. We also get to know about the various initiatives that the government of India is taking to be a developed nation by 2047,” said Rohit Birla from Qatar.
The digital success of India grabbed the attention of the winners who say that it will play a pivotal role in making India a developed nation by 2047.
“During the one-week visit I never had to go ATM or withdraw cash, it was all done through the UPI which has been enabled through Digital India. This program to be implemented at the grassroots level is a big win for India. It is in line with the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make India a developed nation by 2047,” said Bhartendu Sharma from Ireland.
“We are surely going to take back the worthwhile memories of this yatra to our country and look forward to the participation of more people in such an enriching program. Thank you for making our Yatra to India an incredible one,” said Deepa Ramsohok from Mauritius.
The Bharat Ko Janiye quiz is conducted to motivate overseas Indian and foreign youth to enhance their knowledge about India and to awaken the curiosity of the new generation to know more about India so that they develop an all-round understanding of India.
