India came up with the concept of “the world is one family” thousands of years ago and its culture promotes liberalisation and globalisation, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Sunday. “Indian soil and culture nurture liberalisation and globalisation…Nationalism and globalisation are not contrary to each other, but are same,” Chouhan said at a three-day colloquium on ‘Nation First, Thinkers and Practitioners’.

The event was jointly organised by the Department of Culture and other organisations. He said India came up with the concept of “the world is one family” thousands of years ago and has always promoted freedom of thoughts.

Senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said nationalism encourages the concept of “the world is one family”, whereas globalisation is an economic thought.
