Vishwa Samvada Kendra, Karnataka’s new initiative www.samvadaworld.com was launched today. Sri V Nagaraj, Sanghachalak of RSS’ Dakshina Madhya Kshetra comprising of states of Karnataka, Andhra and Telangana, Hon Secretary of Mythic Society launched the website and the operations of Samvada World.
Samvada World news is an absolute necessity and we cannot remain isolated from entire world. India narrowed herself in the past and being alert to global developments and sharing notes is the need of the hour. Swami Vivekananda had also observed this earlier, Sri Nagaraj said in his address today after the launch.
In this Multipolar world, we have observed that globalisation has failed the world. The country has to grow based on cultural ethos supplemented by interdependence on the world which has increased over the years Sri Nagaraj said.
Expansionist mindset of countries needs to be understood for our own security and welfare of the country. Common man’s participation is utmost required in democracy and he cannot shy away himself from global developments. The common man can now connect with the world and the analysis the website produces so as to be aware of the threats associated for the country
Sri V Nagaraj wished his best to samvadaworld and opined that it would work in not mere disseminating news but more of a think tank, analysing world news.
