We present selected speeches of former Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee as India takes rapid strides towards asserting her right as a major player on the global scene during the last few years. The focus of this volume is on some of the key Indian foreign policy initiatives.
The speeches have been classified thematically in each chapter and are not based on chronological sequence. The objective is to present to discerning readers, a glimpse into the structured thoughts and policy formulations at the highest level of the Government on the emerging foreign policy contours of the country.
India is marching towards a bright future. We have our share of problems. But these cannot hide the brightness on the horizon. It will be a future free of poverty and all other vestiges of underdevelopment. The day is not far when every region, every community and every citizen in our country shall enjoy the fruits of India’s prosperity and progress. If we want, and if we act unitedly to get what we want, then this energizing goal can be achieved within the span of a generation.
