This is an occasion to express our patriotism and oneness for the greater cause of our society and nation. Today, India stands tall in the global map in terms of its resilient
economy and excellent relations with foreign countries. The residents of Cuffe Parade and Nariman Point have responded with zeal and enthusiasm to the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s
call of ‘Har Ghar Thiranga ’. All the residential, commercial and government buildings in this area are well decorated with national flag. Within a short span of time,
the entire administrative machinery of the state government and the Municipal Corporation have made all arrangements to celebrate Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav,” Ms. Harshita A.
Narwekar, Ex-Corporator, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation said while addressing a flag hoisting ceremony at WTC Mumbai.
Speaking about her vision for urban development in her locality, Ms. Narvekar said, “My vision is to transform Cuffe Parade and Nariman Point into a sustainable habitat by protecting the coastline from rising sea level.

Our country stands tall by achieving overall progress in economy, tourism, food security, information technology and space science. In this historic moment, every Indian citizen should take the pledge to add on to this progress by realizing the dream of USD 30 trillion economy before we reach 100 years of Independence.

I am confident that India will be an economic, cultural and political superpower to reckon with in the next two decades.”
