Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday addressed the United Nations General Assembly during which he described at length how far India has come 75 years since independence and how it is a shining example of a vibrant democracy.

Here are highlights of his speech:

* I represent a country called the Mother of Democracies. Our diversity and plurality is an example of a vibrant democracy. A boy who helped his father sell tea is now PM. The strength of our democracy is highlighted by the fact that a son of a tea seller is today the Prime Minister of the country.

* For the last 1.5 years, the world has been grappling with the worst pandemic it has seen in the 100 years. I pay tribute to all those who have lost their lives amidst this pandemic.

* Development should be all-inclusive, universal and one that nurtures all. India has embarked on a journey to provide clean and potable water. Inspired by Pt Deendayal Upadhyaya's philosophy of 'Antyodaya', India is moving ahead and ensuring integrated and equitable development for all.

* When India grows, the world grows. When India reforms, the world transforms.

* Corona pandemic has taught the world that the global economy should be more diversified now. An mRNA vaccine is in the final stages of development. Indian scientists are also developing a nasal vaccine against Covid-19. Today, I extend an invitation to all vaccine manufacturers from across the world to make vaccines in India.

* Along with regressive thinking, countries that are using terrorism as a political tool have to understand that terrorism is an equally big threat to them.

* Our oceans are also our shared heritage. That is why we have to keep in mind that we use ocean resources, not abuse them.

* Our oceans are also our shared heritage. That is why we have to keep in mind that we use ocean resources, not abuse them.

* It is very important to ensure that the territory of Afghanistan is not used to spread terrorism and for terrorist attacks

* On the occasion of 75 years of independence, India is going to launch 75 satellites into space made by Indian students
