Chandigarh, Sept.11 (ANI): Asserting that the world is looking at preventive healthcare, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said the time has now come to address wellness and well-being.
“Focus is now on wellness. World is looking at preventive healthcare and this was seen when the world marked Yoga Day so enthusiastically,” Prime Minister Modi said at the 34th convocation ceremony of the prestigious PGIMER in Chandigarh.
Prime Minister Modi also said that physiotherapists would be even better in their work if they learn yoga.
“We have become what we have due to the contribution of so many people. We have become what we have due to ‘samaj’ (society) not ‘sarkar’,” he added.
The Prime Minister pointed out that technology driven medical science is assuming importance.
“Earlier, it was about the syllabus, but now more than books you are connected with lives…I congratulate all those who are beginning a new phase in their lives,” he said.
The Prime Minister said that he is familiar with this institution as he had visited the PGIMER campus in the past.
“The children from Government schools are here. Being here will leave a great impact on their minds. It will inspire them,” said Prime Minister Modi.
“Today your education is not ending. Nor is your learning ending today through this ceremony,” he added. (ANI)
