Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented President Donald J. Trump a folio containing an original commemorative postal stamp that had been issued by India 52 years ago in 1965 to mark the death centenary of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States of America. Apart from honouring the memory of a great American President, the issue of this stamp also symbolized the closeness of the ideals for which Lincoln stood and those which drove Mahatma Gandhi. Both leaders believed in the basic goodness of the common man, and in emancipation of the downtrodden. And both leaders led from the front, with indomitable courage against the forces of reaction and outmoded beliefs. As it happened, both of them laid down their lives for the cause dearest to their hearts.  

 

 The Prime Minister also presented to the President a wooden chest with intricate inlay pattern that is a specialty of Hoshiarpur in Punjab. For the First Lady, the Prime Minister presented a hamper containing a traditional, handcrafted Himachali silver bracelet, tea and honey from Kangra valley, and hand-woven shawls from Jammu and Kashmir, and Himachal Pradesh.

PM Modi's interview to NDTV
May 19, 2024

 In an interview to NDTV, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke on a range of subjects. He gave 'Four-S' mantra for the country to achieve big targets. "The scope should be very big, it shouldn't be in parts, and the second thing is scale, which should also be large. The speed should be in sync with these two. So, scope, scale and speed, and then there should be skill. If we can get these four things together, I believe, we achieve a lot," the PM said.
