Governor said that our country was a symbol of knowledge and prosperity. Here we had centers of knowledge like Nalanda and Takshashila from where people from all over the world used to come to acquire knowledge. It was so rich that rivers of milk and curd would flow. There were such brave fighters here whose example was given in the world of valor.
