On the afternoon of Sunday 10th November 2013 Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated the Reliable Multi Speciality Hospital in Kheda district. Shri Narendra Modi extended his best wishes to the management of the hospital for this noble initiative.

Shri Modi talked at length about the initiatives of the Gujarat government to provide better healthcare to the people of the state. He opined that when a rich person falls ill the world’s best doctors come to treat him but the same is not the case when a poor person falls ill, which is why special attention must be given to healthcare for the poor. He shared that a lot of people call him and share with him how the 108 service has saved the life of so many people in their families. Shri Modi added that the service has made a big difference in the lives of pregnant women. He talked about the success of the Chiranjeevi Yojana and also shared the active participation of Gujarati community in blood, eye and organ donation.

He affirmed that what the people, especially the poor need is not merely health insurance but health assurance. Shri Modi spoke about the steps of the Gujarat government to provide clean air and water to the citizens. He gave the example of how Ahmedabad, which used to be one of the most polluted cities in India became cleaner due to the government’s efforts to bring CNG.

Shri Modi further shared that in the last 7 years Gujarat has been polio free. He credited Delhi’s former Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan for starting the drive, which he said was later replicated all over by Atal ji’s Government. Shri Modi took on the Prime Minister’s statements in Chhattisgarh yesterday, giving him a fitting response on the lack of historical and geographical sense in among the Congress.

A large number of community organisations and members of the Muslim community attended the programme and greeted Shri Modi. Sports Minister Shri Ramanlal Vora was present on the occasion.

Artefacts include cultural antiquities and figurines related to Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism
Endeavour embodies continuous efforts by the Modi Government to bring back our antiquities & artefacts from across the world
Most of the items belong to the period of 11th CE to 14th CE as well as historic antiquities belonging to Before Common Era

157 artefacts & antiquities were handed over by the United States during Prime Minister Modi’s visit. PM conveyed his deep appreciation for the repatriation of antiquities to India by the United States. PM Modi & President Biden committed to strengthen their efforts to combat the theft, illicit trade and trafficking of cultural objects.

The list of 157 artefacts includes a diverse set to items ranging from the one and a half metre bas relief panel of Revanta in sandstone of the 10th CE to the 8.5cm tall, exquisite bronze Nataraja from the 12th CE. The items largely belong to the period of 11th CE to 14th CE as well as historic antiquities such as the copper anthropomorphic object of 2000 BC or the terracotta vase from the 2nd CE. Some 45 antiquities belong to the Before Common Era.

While half of the artifacts (71) are cultural, the other half consists of figurines which relate to Hinduism (60), Buddhism (16) and Jainism (9).

Their make spreads across metal, stone and terracotta. The bronze collection primarily contains ornate figurines of the well-known postures of Lakshmi Narayana, Buddha, Vishnu, Siva Parvathi and the 24 Jain Tirthankaras and the less common Kankalamurti, Brahmi and Nandikesa besides other unnamed deities and divine figures.

The motifs include religious sculptures from Hinduism (Three headed Brahma, Chariot Driving Surya, Vishnu and his Consorts, Siva as Dakshinamurti, Dancing Ganesha etc), Buddhism (Standing Buddha, Boddhisattva Majushri, Tara) and Jainism (Jain Tirthankara, Padmasana Tirthankara, Jaina Choubisi) as well as secular motifs (Amorphous couple in Samabhanga, Chowri Bearer, Female playing drum etc).

There are 56 terracotta pieces (Vase 2nd CE, Pair of Deer 12th CE, Bust of Female 14th CE) and an 18th CE sword with sheath with inscription mentioning Guru Hargovind Singh in Persian).

This continues the efforts by the Modi Government to bring back our antiquities & artefacts from across the world.
