Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the international conclave on 'Globalising Indian Thought', at IIM Kozhikode via video-conferencing. Addressing the conclave, PM Modi said, "For centuries we have welcomed the world to our land. Our civilisation has prospered when many could not. Why? Because one finds peace and harmony here." He further added, "In a world seeking to break free from mindless hate, violence, conflict and terrorism, Indian way of life offers rays of hope. Indian way of conflict avoidance isn't by brute force but power of dialogue."
