The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has written to Mr. Justin Trudeau, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, on winning the General Elections. The text of PM’s letter as follows:

I am delighted to extend to you, on behalf of the Government and people of India, my heartiest congratulations for leading the Liberal Party of Canada to a victory in the general election.

You bring vision, youth and energy to your leadership, which will no doubt sustain and strengthen Canada’s success at home and abroad. Your leadership will also be of great significance for the world at a time of many global challenges.

I fondly recall our meeting in April during my visit to your great country. I was particularly struck by your desire to deepen our multifaceted ties, anchored in a common framework of democracy, pluralism, rule of law and close people-to-people relations.

Relations between India and Canada have made remarkable progress in recent years and were elevated to the level of strategic partnership during my visit. Canada has emerged as an important and reliable partner in India’s socio-economic transformation. Our partnership is not only blessed with enormous potential for mutually beneficial bilateral cooperation across a wide range of areas, it can also help shape a more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. I look forward to working closely with you to further expand and deepen the relationship between our two countries in the years ahead.

I take this opportunity to once again extend a cordial invitation to you and your family to pay an official visit to India. I look forward to welcoming you in New Delhi.

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.
