'Nalanda Maha Vihara', surmounted by the G20 Logo formed the front portion of the tableaux of Ministry of External Affairs Ministry, that rolled down Kartavya Path in the national capital during the grand ceremonial parade of the platinum jubilee celebrations of India's Republic Day on Friday.
Union External Affairs Minister Jaishankar took to social media platform to post: "Great to see the MEA tableau of G20 at the #RepublicDay Parade. What an year it was!"
The MEA tableaux aimed to depict the successful completion of the country's G20 Presidency and its achievements, reflecting India's leadership of addressing global issues in an ambitious, decisive, inclusive and action oriented manner.
The theme of G20 under India's presidency was 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' or one Earth, One Family, One Future that affirms the value of all life and their interconnectedness on our planet.
Last September, India successfully hosted the G20 summit in the national capital, hosting over 40 global leaders and their delegations.
