Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday delivered his annual Vijayadashami speech at the organisation's headquarters in Nagpur where he spoke at length about the idea of India.

Here are highlights of his speech

* Partition was a sad part of our history. The truth about this past should be faced, to bring back the lost integrity and unity. The new generation should know the truth about history.

* We do not want a culture that increases divide, but the one that binds the nation together and promotes love. Special occasions like birth anniversaries and festivals must be celebrated together.

* The journey from 'Swadheehnta to Swatantrata' is far from over. Some in the world find India's progress and its growing respect as detrimental to their vested interests.

* Attempts are on to undermine and condemn India's traditions, religion and present history.

* There is no mechanism to check content on the Over the Top platform. Children have access to smartphones. They have access to all kinds of unregulated content on OTT platforms.

* Drug menace affecting every section of society today. We know who is promoting this and who is benefitting. Money from such businesses is used for anti-national activities. All of this should be controlled.

* Bitcoin is a matter of concern. Which country, which system has control over bitcoin, I don’t know. Uncontrolled currency like Bitcoin has the potential to destabilise the economy of all countries and pose serious challenges.

* We should promote and feel proud of our mother language. Wherever possible, let us avoid English. Why not sign in your own language?

* India tackled Covid well in the first wave, but the second wave wreaked havoc across the nation. We must be well-prepared for the third wave, 6 or 7-member teams of Covid warriors must be deployed in every village.

* Some say Taliban says is reformed now, some say it is the same old. We should be wary and cautious. Taliban might have changed but has Pakistan changed?

* Terrorists in J&K have restarted the spate of targeted killings of citizens, especially Hindus, to destroy their morale and reestablish the reign of terror in the Valley. Efforts for curbing & finishing off the terrorist activities needs speeding up.
