While the anger of the protesting youth is understandable, I would appeal to them to avoid violence and destruction of property: P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Minister:

  • The piecemeal concessions to the Agnipath scheme announced by the government prove our point that the scheme was ill-thought and poorly conceived

  • In view of the massive opposition to the scheme, the proper course is to completely halt the scheme, put out the issues and hold wide consultations on the solutions

  • While the anger of the protesting youth is understandable, I would appeal to them to avoid violence and destruction of property. They should take the path of Mahatma Gandhi and they will succeed

Celebrating the long-standing friendship between India & Vietnam, between the peacock & the crane!

On margins of the Special ASEAN-India Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, EAM Dr S. Jaishankar & FM Bui Thanh Son launched the joint logo commemorating 50years of India Vietnam diplomatic relations.

The logo has been selected jointly by the two sides through a contest open for nationals of both countries. The image represents long-standing friendship between India and Vietnam symbolically through a peacock and a crane, the birds of national importance in the twocountries respectively. It also includes the numeral 50 to denote the 50 years of diplomatic relations and the national flags of India and Vietnam at its Centre.

Today, 18th June is the day my Mother Heeraba enters her 100th year. On this special day, I have penned a few thoughts expressing joy and gratitude : PM Narendra Modi

Narendra Modi, Prime Minister :

Mother – is not just any other word in the dictionary. It encompasses a whole range of emotions – love, patience, trust, and a lot more. Across the world, irrespective of country or region, children have a special affection for their mothers. A mother not only gives birth to her children, but also shapes their mind, their personality, and their self-confidence. And while doing so, mothers selflessly sacrifice their own personal needs and aspirations.

Today, I feel extremely happy and fortunate to share that my mother Smt. Heeraba is entering her hundredth year. This is going to be her birth centenary year. If my father had been alive, he too would have celebrated his 100th birthday last week. 2022 is a special year as my mother’s centenary year is starting, and my father would have completed his.

Just last week, my nephew shared a few videos of Mother from Gandhinagar. A few youngsters from the society had come home, my father’s photograph was kept on a chair, there was a kirtan, and Mother was immersed in singing bhajans while playing the manjeera. She is still the same – age may have taken a toll physically, but she is as mentally alert as ever.

Earlier, there was no custom of celebrating birthdays in our family. However, children from the younger generations planted 100 trees to remember my father on his birthday.

I have no doubt that everything good in my life, and all that is good in my character, can be attributed to my parents. Today, as I sit in Delhi, I am filled with memories from the past.

My Mother is as simple as she is extraordinary. Just like all mothers! As I write about my Mother, I am sure that many of you would relate to my description of her. While reading, you may even see your own mother’s image.
