The history of the nation gives a glimpse into the magnanimity of its evolution – from a Country reeling under colonialism, to one of the leading economies in the global scenario. More than anything, the nationalistic enthusiasm of the people is the contributing force behind the culmination of such a development. This transformation of the nation instills a sense of national pride in the heart of every Indian within the Country and abroad, and Swadesh Conclave 2022 is a modest attempt at keeping its flame alive.
