Pramod Sharma, founder of Yuvsatta, said that “we are going to sort of reimagine over five millennia of glorious history of South Asia which was the pivot of the universe in terms of economic growth, richness of culture and biodiversity. As you know incidentally, South Asia is also the world’s most populated area. It is not that the present bickering or differences between cultures and now identified as countries was not there earlier. Yet, this region went up to contributing 1/4th of world GDP, till the time Britishers took over from the Mughals in India. The only great thing then was that there was no bar on exchange of people and trade.“
Applauding the efforts of Yuvsatta-NGO and extending a support of Rupees One Lacs for strengthening PFFROSA Sant Baba Harpal Singh Ji, advised that the focus should be on Guru Nanak’s Message when he said that “God is neither Hindu nor Muslim”. He said that Guru Nanak began teaching the importance of the equality of all people, regardless of their caste, religion or gender. He taught that everyone is created by God’s will and therefore we must all be treated equally and with respect. And young people should follow his teaching for lasting peace, harmony and progress in the South Asian nations.
Sanjay Sharma added that in days to come they through PFFROSA & Rising South Asia TV will promote economic growth and increase collaboration and mutual assistance in economic, social, culture, technology and scientific fields.
In the end Sant Baba Harpal Singh ji presented ‘Global Peace Symbols’ made from soil & water from 23 nations of the world at an annual Global Youth Peace Fest to all prominent participants.
