New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Indian community in Russia's capital Moscow on Tuesday. During this, PM Modi, while referring to the friendship between India and Russia, also hummed the song 'Sir Par Lal Topi Russi' from Bollywood veteran actor Raj Kapoor's film. The video of which has also surfaced. Addressing the program, PM Modi said that for decades I have been an admirer of the unique relationship between India and Russia. On hearing the word Russia, the first word that comes to every Indian's mind is – India's partner in happiness and sorrow, India's trusted friend. No matter how much the temperature goes into minus in the winter season in Russia. The friendship between India and Russia has always been in plus, full of warmth. This relationship is built on the strong foundation of mutual trust and mutual respect.

Modi sang a song from a Raj Kapoor film
PM Modi then mentioned a song from Raj Kapoor's film 'Shri 420' and said that once this song was sung in every household, 'Sir par lal topi russi, phir bhi dil hai hindustani'; the song may have become old, but its sentiments are evergreen.

'In my third term, I will work with three times more strength'
PM Modi said, “Today is 9th July and it has been a full month since I took oath. Exactly a month ago, on 9th June, I took oath as the Prime Minister of India for the third time and on the same day I had vowed that in my third term, I will work with three times the strength. I will work at three times the speed. It is also a coincidence that this number 3 is reflected in many goals of the government.”

'The world is surprised to see India's development pace'
He said, “The world is surprised to see the pace of development that the country has achieved in the last 10 years. When people from the world come to India, they say that India is changing. What are they seeing? They are clearly seeing the transformation of India, the reconstruction of India. When India organizes successful events like the G-20 summit, the world says in one voice that India is changing. When India doubles the number of its airports in 10 years, the world says that India is really changing, when India electrifies more than 40 thousand kilometers of railway lines in 10 years, the world also realizes the power of India.”
