India’s presidency of the G20 is a pivotal moment in its international standing. India has a vital role to play in key global challenges, from economic sluggishness to regional strife. However, it has much more to offer in terms of a philosophy toward humanity’s common future and way of life. This is not just a global leadership moment but a vishwa guru (world leader) one.

So, it’s good to see India using phrases like “let us join together” to make this presidency about “healing, harmony, and hope”. It reflects not just idealism but genuineness. There is no doubt that growing polarisation and clashes of ideologies can be overcome through the “lasting appeal of so many spiritual traditions that advocate the fundamental one-ness of us all,” as Prime Minister Narendra Modi puts it.
