It just shows that when you put your heart, any language becomes ours”. He quoted Swami Vivekananda as “There needs to be a natural friendship between Japan and India. Young Indian must travel far away especially to Japan to become technological leaders of tomorrow”.
Tejasvi Surya advised the students that “While being in Japan we should take care of our language and culture and spread them to the Japanese. You are the brand ambassadors of India and you should assimilate their culture and literature. So while you have a great opportunity not just to make good careers of the jobs that you take, but also learn their culture, literature, history and the exchanges between India and oriental culture which dates back to centuries”.
Speaking in the Event Shri Kuboki said “Nowadays many Japanese companies are looking at India as a big market. Lots of companies are coming to manufacture in India following Modiji’s campaign. Bangalore has become the second city having Japanese population to NCR Delhi. Nowadays Japanese are inviting Indians to Japan to work as Japan now has become an aging society and they need a big workforce to work in Japan. There has been a huge demand in the areas of IT Industry, Manufacturing and Elderly Health care”
