Indian youths share their love for Cuba and Martí’s ideas

New Delhi, May 19 (Prensa Latina) Regarding the 129th anniversary of José Martí's fall in combat on Sunday, Indian youths, who have studied his life and work, expressed their love for Cuba and the Apostle’s ideas.

In a message to Prensa Latina, Ramit Singh Chimni, president of the UNESCO/José Martí International Prize Jury and co-founder of the Eight Goals One Foundation, noted the impact in India of Martí’s thought, which in his opinion is present in the character of the Cuban people.

Chimni pointed out that it is necessary for the world to understand the ideas of Cuba’s National Hero about freedom, justice and humanity.

Martí explained well those terms that live in the spirit of Cuba today. Joy and humanism are natural conditions of Cubans despite the problems they face, he noted.

That’s why, I say that the world needs Cuba more than Cuba needs the world, Chimni pointed out.

Karthika Sajeev Changam, international collaborator of the José Martí Program Office and member of the central team of the Indian foundation, referred to the various initiatives undertaken by her organization based on the ideas of the most universal of Cubans.

Our first project, Homeland Books, the best digital library of Cuban literature, grows and develops thanks to the culture of the fair and inclusive island, she said.

Changam also highlighted the Homeland Sowing initiative, which is inspired by Martí’s vision of the natural man, she added.

Through this project we encourage people to grow their own food, connect with nature and create a self-sufficient Cuba, she explained. The young woman stated that on this special occasion, the foundation ratifies its commitment to safeguarding freedom through the arts, letters and work, just as José Martí envisioned it.
