Ambassador B.R. Muthu Kumar I.F.S. (Retd)

To mark the Rashtriya Sankalp Diwas on the 31st of October 2017, Ambassador B.R. Muthu Kumar I.F.S. (Retd) delivered an address on “National Integration”. The event commemorates the efforts made to unify India post-independence.

Ambassador Kumar also made a reference to the tragic event of Mrs. Indira Gandhi’s assassination which falls on the same day. Students were reminded of Mrs. Gandhi’s role in unifying the country and the instrumental role she had in ushering the “Green Revolution” which made India, self-sufficient in food production.

The lessons that we’ve learnt as a multi-cultural and multi- confessional country are as important as ever, opined Ambassador Kumar who also referenced his heritage to demonstrate the vibrancy and resilience of the country.
