Evolution of Enlightened Society (sic)

While channel surfing I happened to see a speech by the President of India. I've never seen him speak before so it was fun watching him talk. What made this talk interesting was his "action oriented solution for evolving a happy, prosperous and peaceful society in our planet" which he called the Enlightened Society and the proposal for an Organization of Spiritual Glad tidings. He even lists out what could be the mission of this Organization! I find points 2 and 3 of this mission interesting:

2. Using the music as a binding force of violent hearts throughout the world.

3. Making fine arts as a part of the curriculum in the secondary and university education.

Here's the cool part: The President Of India has his own website and you can find all his speeches there.

Here's the one I'm talking about:
