The Prime Minister today presented British Prime Minister David Cameron a specially handcrafted pair of bookends made of wood, marble and silver.

The centerpiece of each of these bookends is a silver bell, an object of rich symbolism relating to inner wisdom and tidings, which has a verse from the Bhagavad Gita etched in Sanskrit, along with its English meaning along the inside rim.

Taken from Chapter 13 of the Bhagavad Gita, these verses (15-16) describe the ultimate underlying reality. Each bell has one verse etched on it.

Without all beings, yet within; immovable yet moving; so subtle that it cannot be perceived; so far yet so near It is. (Verse 15)

It is indivisible yet appears divided in all beings. Know it to be the creator, the preserver and the destroyer. (Verse 16)

In addition, in view of Prime Minister Cameron’s fondness for Robert Graves’ work on World War I Goodbye to All That, the Prime Minister also presented to him David Omissi’s Indian Voices of the Great War.

For the First Lady, the Prime Minister presented Aranmula metal mirror, a unique GI protected handicraft from Kerala, and some pashmina stoles.

Pehle Desh, Phir Dal... This has always been the mantra of BJP for all our Karyakartas: PM Modi
Can we take a pledge that in this Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, we ensure at least 75% voting, in every booth?: PM Modi to karyakartas

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today interacted with Page Samiti members from Gujarat via NaMo App. Congratulating the people of India on National Voters’ Day, PM Modi said, “Today is the National Voters' Day. I especially congratulate the millennials on this day. India's Election Commission is a benchmark for the entire world today. Our efforts must be to encourage people to vote.”

While interacting with BJP karyakartas, PM Modi asked them, “Can we take a pledge that in this Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, we ensure at least 75% voting, in every booth?”

PM Modi discussed on barrage of topics with BJP karyakartas that includes Vaccination coverage, Technology related issues, Ambaji, Solar power projects, development of Kutch etc.

Interacting with Shailesh Panchal from Vadodara district, PM Modi said that he was aware that BJP karyakartas were helpful during corona times. He also asked him about the use of technology. Replying to this, Panchal said, “We are active on social media and we have made different whatsapp and messaging groups for different areas to fulfill their particular needs.”

Also, he said, “Pehle Desh, Phir Dal... This has always been the mantra of BJP for all our Karyakartas.” PM Modi said that all Panna Pramukhs from the state should make an effort to know each and every member present in their panna and treat them as their family whether there is an election or not.

PM Modi urged all Panna Pramukhs to sit together and listen to ‘Mann Ki Baat’. He also asked one of the karyakartas to get the photo clicked of all Panna Pramukhs listening to Mann Ki Baat and share with him on the social media.

The Prime Minister has requested Panna Pramukhs for micro donation, to donate small amounts of money to the party fund. He also said, “the 'Kamal Pushp' is an innovative campaign on the NaMo App. I urge the Panna Pramukhs to collect inspiring stories of the Karyakartas who have served the society.” PM Modi also stressed on the need to reduce malnutrition and steps to be taken to eradicate this and other related problems.
