The goal of the month-long “Kashi Tamil Sangamam,” a celebration, reaffirmation, and rediscovery of the long-standing ties between Tamil Nadu and Kashi, which the prime minister had launched in Varanasi last November, was to honour such ties. Prime Minister Narendra Modi responded to persons from Tamil Nadu who wrote to him about their experiences at the Kashi Tamil Sangamam in Varanasi last November, saying the event encouraged him to work more to enhance the nation’s togetherness.
Enthused by the thousands of messages from Tamil Nadu residents telling him about their experiences at the Sangamam in Varanasi, Modi wrote to them and referred to them as “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat” flag bearers. Prime Minister Modi has expressed his satisfaction in writing about how this programme gave people a chance to have a close-up look at the culture and people of Kashi.
The manner in which the rich culture of Tamil Nadu and the beauty of the Tamil language were glorified in Kashi, according to the prime minister, was fantastic. In the letter, the prime minister made mention to the long-standing ties between Varanasi and Tamil Nadu, saying, “Kashi has had a long and enduring connection with the people of Tamil Nadu, who have added to the rich tapestry of culture and civilization of the place. Kashi Tamil Sangamam has rekindled those historic memories and reiterated how deeply connected the various regions of our country are.”
“At a time when the whole country is discussing ways to build a strong and self-reliant India during the Amrit Kaal of the next 25 years, every effort to deepen the unity of our country is important. A strong foundation is crucial to the building of a glorious monument,”PM Modi mentioned. The prime minister expressed appreciation for the feelings of the Tamil Nadu people and stated that the Sangamam has motivated him to step up efforts to further solidify the country’s unity.
