India has recently been elected to the G-20 presidency, and a meeting of development ministers from G-20 countries will be held in Varanasi in the next few months.India's aspiration to be a major power is not achievable without being a knowledge powerhouse, and Banaras Hindu University with its vast knowledge network and human resources would play a pivotal role in this.Kashi has been a capital of culture, knowledge, and debate, according to him, and this university reflects the best aspirations of India post-independence.
