Nalanda varsity’s image forms backdrop at greeting area of President’s dinner

President Droupadi Murmu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed the G20 delegates at a ceremonial dinner hosted by her on 9 September. The delegates witnessed an image of Nalanda Mahavihara (Nalanda University), an ancient monastic university, forming the backdrop at the greeting area.

As per details, the mahavihara, which falls in modern-day Bihar, was in operation between the 5th century and the 12th century. The university’s legacy dates back to Mahavira’s and Buddha’s era, reflecting ancient India’s advancement in cultivating scholarship and dissemination of knowledge.

Through the image of Nalanda Mahavihara, which also carriesĀ the G20 logo on one side and the theme of India’s presidency of the grouping — ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ – One Earth. One Family. One Future’ — on the other, India has set the benchmark for other countries to follow.

Not only Prime Minister Narendra Modi, but President Murmu welcomed the heads of state and other leaders at the beautifully decorated Bharat Mandapam at the entrance spot with theĀ Nalanda Mahavihara in the background.

The prime minister was also seen explaining to some of the G20 leaders, including UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, about the importance of the university.

The officials noted that Nalanda University represents an embrace of diversity, meritocracy, freedom of thought, collective governance, autonomy, and knowledge sharing — all aligning with the core principles of democracy.

Nalanda is a living testament to the enduring spirit of India’s advanced educational pursuit and its commitment to building a harmonious world community, aligning with India’s G20 Presidency theme, Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.
