- Much has been written about India’s abiding legacy to the UN. Swami Vivekananda had said:
“India, for thousands of years, peacefully existed. Even earlier, when history had no records and tradition dares not peer into the gloom of that intense past, even from then until now, ideas after ideas have marched out from her, but every word has been spoken with a blessing behind it and peace before it. We, of all nations of the world, have never been a conquering race, and that blessing is on our head, and therefore we live.”
This message from India is more relevant than ever before in our quest to strengthen international peace and security through the United Nations.
