Pokhriyal said that “our Vedas-based Indian culture inspires us to move forward by adopting human values like unity, harmony, cooperation, brotherhood, non-violence, humility and equality. In the difficult crisis of Covid-19 we have a big challenge to maintain the confidence and morale of all. We can define the concept of a happy, calm and prosperous world on the basis of world brotherhood, humanity, harmony and honourable values only on the basis of Vedic values.”
