Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently said India and Japan’s friendship will determine the course of the 21st century. “There is no doubt that the 21st century belongs to Asia. But India and Japan’s friendship will determine how it will actually look like,” Modi told the Indian community inJapan after inaugurating the Vivekananda Cultural Centre. “The state and direction of the 21st century will depend on the direction in which Japanand India try to take the world,” he said.
He said India’s youth have attracted the world community towards India with their remarkable performance in the information technology sector. He said it was in the aftermath of the Information technology revolution that there was a dynamic shift on how the world looked at India. “We move the mouse (of the computer) and the world moves too,” Modi said. He said there should be no compromise on part of Indians with their self-esteem. “Only that society of the world progresses that believes in its strength and that has pride and esteem in itself. We should never compromise with our self-esteem,” Modi said.
