"We have already initiated activities abroad through our cultural centres to emphasise the message that India is the mother of democracy, that India has a pluralistic and consultative tradition that very few societies, if anybody at all, can match," he told the members.

In reply to BJP Member Rakesh Sinha about whether a discourse will be initiated on India being the mother of democracy in leading institutions such as Harvard and

Cambridge abroad, through its cultural centres since the PM has called India a Mother of Democracy, Jaishankar said, "this is a very much work in progress."
