Grozny and Bangalore – Cooperation for Peace and Prosperity


The International Forum “Spiritual Leadership and Creative Economy” will be held in Grozny from March 5-7, 2024. The main organizer of the forum was BCMF (BRICS Culture Media Forum) in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Grozny. Dr. Purushottam, Vice President of BRICS International Forum, developer and philanthropist, spiritual activist and philanthropist, one of the most influential businessmen of Karnataka, became one of the honored guests of the forum and the head of the delegation from Bangalore city.

A special difference between Dr. Purushottam’s personal credo and beliefs is the idea of spiritual balance and spiritual growth of the nation. Dr. Purushottam considers not only economic well-being, but also spiritual harmony to be the criterion of success for any person, since in interaction these growth factors lead a nation to prosperity. A well-known international expert shares with the Russian audience his vision of the development of the BRICS alliance, the prospects for Russian-Indian relations and his understanding of India’s role in the BRICS alliance. “First of all, I would like to congratulate you.

Since the year 2024 is very significant for Russia,” Dr. Purushottam notes, “Russia is holding a global International festival of youth and students in the city of Mochi this year and chairs the BRICS alliance. I would like to note that the BRICS alliance has a huge potential for development not only from an economic point of view, but also from a spiritual point of view. On January 21, 2024, the grand opening of the temple of Lord Rama will take place in Ayodhya. The whole world is looking forward to this event.

It was a great honor for me to receive an invitation to this event as an honored guest. And it was also incredibly pleasant and significant for me to receive a personal invitation from the Mayor of Grozny, Khas-Magomed Kadyrov, to the forum “Spiritual Leadership and Creative Economy”. The very name of the forum in Grozny speaks volumes and it resonates deeply in my heart. We see today that the two leaders of our countries – Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Prime Minister of our country, who, fortunately, returned to its ancient name “Bharat” – the highly respected Sri Narendra Modi are doing a lot not only for economic progress, but also for the spiritual prosperity of the nation. Bangalore and Grozny have a lot in common – Bangalore is located in southern India, and Grozny is in southern Russia.

The mild and rather warm climate makes our cities very attractive in the tourism sector. Bangalore, as it is the recognized silicon Valley of India, can share IT technologies, IT startups, IT projects and solutions with Grozny. I am sure that over time Grozny will be able to become a smart city, a brilliant pearl of the Caucasus and an example to follow.

For me personally, India’s role in the BRICS alliance is far from being limited by its economic potential. The main wealth of India is its ancient spiritual knowledge, which has been stored for many millennia in sacred texts – the Vedas, written in Sanskrit.

That is why, in my opinion, spiritual diversity can and should become the basis for the concept of dynamic development of the BRICS alliance. I am going to the city of Grozny with great hope and consider my trip as a continuation of the fascinating spiritual journey that the Lord gave me. May this forum bring good to all mankind.

Jai Sri Ram!»
