Pranab Mukherjee, the 13th president of India was born December 11, 1935 in a small village in West Bengal. President Pranab Mukherjee was asked what inspired him to join politics and become president and he said “I come from a political family. My father was a freedom fighter. He was a prominent leader of the locality and member of the Congress party. He spent 10 years in British prisons. In the evening, in our living room, the only subject we used to discuss was politics. So politics was not unfamiliar to me.”
Following his education, which included a Master’s degree in History and Political Science, and a law degree from the University of Kolkata, Mukherjee began his professional life as college teacher and journalist. By 1969 he had left teaching and was elected to the Upper House of Parliament. He was mentored by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and eventually became Deputy Minister of many government agencies, including Minister of State for Finance. His last role was as Leader of the Lower House of Parliament which he resigned when he decided to run for President.
Indians elected Mukherjee as President of the world’s largest democracy based on his political background, his experiences, and his views on diversity. Citizens like Pranab and his ideas for the country. He talked about “ the world is struggling to deal with the worst impulses of intolerance and hatred that mankind has ever witnessed. At such a time, there can be no better recourse than to remind ourselves of the high values, written and unwritten samskaras, duties and the way of life that is the essence of India. This is the time to reinforce the civilizational values that bind together the complex diversity of modern-day India and promote them among our people and the world,” The people of India look up to him positively and care for him. They believe his ideas are good and will help the world.
President Mukherjee says acceptance and assimilation has defined Indian civilization. On December 1, 2015 he began “Festa De Diu”, Asia’s longest beach festival. The festival site was chosen based on the area’s mix of European, tribal, and Indian cultures. Mukherjee believes in not just the acceptance of diversity but the knowledge and understanding of different cultures and religions. He encourages safetyness within India and hopes that India can be a positive role model for the rest of the world while currently dealing with terrorism and other terrible acts.
