Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother Heeraben Modi passed away on Friday, December 30. The PM has reached Ahmedabad. Heeraben Modi’s last rites will be performed at a crematorium at sector 30 in Gandhinagar. Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel will be joining the Prime Minister during the last rites where PM Modi’s brother Sombhai Modi will also be present. 

Following the news of her mother’s death, Prime Minister Modi wrote on Twitter: “A glorious century rests at the feet of God… In Maa, I have always felt that the trinity, which contains the journey of an ascetic, is the symbol of a selfless Karmayogi and a life committed to values.”

शानदार शताब्दी का ईश्वर चरणों में विराम… मां में मैंने हमेशा उस त्रिमूर्ति की अनुभूति की है, जिसमें एक तपस्वी की यात्रा, निष्काम कर्मयोगी का प्रतीक और मूल्यों के प्रति प्रतिबद्ध जीवन समाहित रहा है। pic.twitter.com/yE5xwRogJi

He further wrote: “When I met her on her 100th birthday, she said one thing, which I always remember, that work with intelligence, live life with purity.”

मैं जब उनसे 100वें जन्मदिन पर मिला तो उन्होंने एक बात कही थी, जो हमेशा याद रहती है कि કામ કરો બુદ્ધિથી, જીવન જીવો શુદ્ધિથી यानि काम करो बुद्धि से और जीवन जियो शुद्धि से।
