New Delhi, India, November 25, : Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that no individual or family is above another, and that his life inspires us to live the Assams' Nation First motto, which was to defeat the Mughals and successfully stop the Mughals' ever-expanding ambitions.On his 400th birthday, we bow to the valorous Lachit Borphukan.Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he played a crucial role in safeguarding Assams' culture at a time when the country is commemorating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, describing this great tradition as a glorious event in the country's history.India is not only celebrating its cultural diversity, but also acknowledging the unsung heroes and heroines of its history.They bring us closer to the identity and glory of our time, and they encourage us to dedicate ourselves to the country,' the Prime Minister said.In the thousand-year history of human history, the Prime Minister pointed out that while many civilizations existed before us, India lived immortal with the same energy and passion, but that it was the wheel of time that brought them down to their knees.Saints and scholars were recruited in the nineteenth century to safeguard India's spiritual and cultural identity.Bravehearts like Lachit Borphukan demonstrated that those forces of fanaticism and terror vanish, but the immortal light of Indian life remains eternal, according to the Prime Minister.It is a mixture of thought and logic, religion, religion, culture, and values and traditions, he said. Despite the fact that the Mughals had snatched Guwahati, bravehearts like Lachit Borphukan gained independence from the clutches of tyrannical rulers of the Mughal empire.Veer Lachit Borphukan's act of valour at Saraighat was not only an example of unmatched love for the motherland, but he also had the ability to unite the entire Assam region, where every individual person was prepared to defend the motherland if required.The Prime Minister explained that India's history is not about triumphant, but rather about the valour and courage of many greats.Sadly, even after independence, we were taught the same tale of slavery that was forged as a plot.Upon independence, it was needed to shift the agenda of foreigners who made us slaves, but that was not achieved, he said. According to the Prime Minister, the mistake of not presenting those activities in the mainstream is being addressed now.The fact that this event is taking place in Delhi is a reflection of this change.The Assam Government has taken steps to honor its heroes' legacy, including projects such as a museum and a memorial in the city.According to the Prime Minister, such steps would allow the young generation to comprehend the myth of sacrifice and bravery.Lachit Borphuk's life inspires us to follow the National First motto. The country should be supreme, rather than nepotism and dynasty, according to the Prime Minister, only by recognizing its real past will it learn from its past and chart the right course for the future, he said.Referring to the lines from Bharat Ratna Bhupen Hazarika, the Prime Minister said that only by reminiscing about it, the country will have a clear picture of history.According to PM Modi, this would give a great boost to Ek Bharat's Shreshtha Bharat's resolution.We need to make India more developed and make the Northeast the center of India's growth.I am sure that the spirit of the 400th Jayanti of Veer Lachit Borphukan will strengthen our resolve and help the country achieve its potential, he said. The Prime Minister also paid a visit to the museum, notably by Dr. Himanta Ranjan Gogoi, Topon Kumar Gogoi, and Members of the Assam Government were among those present.The Prime Minister has made it a mission to honor the unsung heroes in a fitting way.In accordance with this, the country is commemorating Lachit Borphukan's 400th birth anniversary in 2022.Shri Ram Nath Kovind, the then Honble President of India, inaugurated the festivities in Guwahati in February of that year.Lachit Borphukan (24th November 1622 – 25th April 1672) was the first commander of the Royal Army of the Ahom Kingdom of Assam who defeated the Mughals and successfully stopped Aurangzeb's ever-expanding ambitions.Lachit Borphukan and his forces' heroic fight is one of the most inspiring military feats of resistance in our nation's history.
