Ahmedabad, Monday: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today unveiled three elegant books portraying Gujarat’s glorious heritage by senior authors and historians.
The books are: Dr. Makrand Mehta’s ‘Gujarat-no Rajwadi Warso’, Dr. Rasesh Jamindar’s ‘Gujarat-na Sthal Nam-no Sarthkosh’ and Navinchandra Parekh’s ‘Ugta Rahejo Bhan’.
Mr. Modi complimented the authors for their through-provoking books. Speaking on the occasion, he said that the society is still largely unaware of varied social, economic and political aspects of India’s princely states and their rule. The princes are not just the family trees of kings or stories of their valour. Rather, they depict and portray the life and times of the contemporary periods.
The Chief Minister pointed out that Gujarat has maximum number of Sun Temples in India. The knowledge our ancestors had possessed about the Sun God and Environment is rare and fathomless. He advocated chronicling the history and past of every village and town of Gujarat and celebrating their birthdays, too.
Mr. Modi said that Gujarat Government has undertaken research on history of the police force and the Revenue Department on Revenue Administration Reforms.
Youth Services and Cultural Affairs Minister Ramanbhai Vora and Secretary Bhagyesh Jha were present on the occasion.
