PM Modi visited his mother on the occasion of her special day at her residence in Gandhinagar. He washed her feet, performed rituals and had an emotional conversation with her.

“Took blessings of my mother today as she enters her 100th year,” PM Modi tweeted sharing photos of his meeting with his mother.

Suresh Raina, who was part of the IPL 2022 as a commentator, quoted PM Modi’s tweet and wrote a heart-touching poem.

“वो किस्से मेरी पूंजी है माँ,
जो तू रोज सुनाया करती थी,
उस जैसा माखन नही मिला माँ,
जो तू मुझे खिलाया करती थी|

माँ हैं तो हम हैं
माँ हैं तो जग है” Raina tweeted.

Translation: “Those stories are my capital, mother, which you used to tell everyday, I didn’t get the butter like that, mother, that you used to feed me. We are because of mothers, the world is because of mothers.”

PM Modi himself, too, penned an emotional, moving blog, expressing joy and gratitude, on this grand occasion of her mother turning 100.

“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,” PM Modi wrote.

“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.”
