UK PM cites Ramayana as he seeks to boost ties with India

LONDON (TIP): British PM David Cameron has described his country’s relationship with India as “the great partnership of the 21st century” and said the UK needs to “continue to do everything” to further build it. “There is great excitement about our economies. India invests more into the UK than the rest of Europe put together,” he said at a Diwali reception at his residence on Wednesday night. “Britain is one of the top three investors in India.” Cameron spoke about the shared history, language, love for sport and cooperation between universities of the two countries to highlight “strong and vibrant” ties. He said he was looking forward to his third visit to India as the PM and also seeing his counterpart, Manmohan Singh. “It’s a huge pleasure to go back to India.” Cameron described Ramayana relevant even more in modern times and said the UK can learn from it. “When I look at the Ramayana and my understanding of the Hindu religion, there is so much you have to say about the importance of family, community, voluntary service —these are all the values that our country needs more of.”
