Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother Heeraben Modi — who was admitted to a hospital in Ahmedabad — passed away at 100.
Informing about her demise, the Prime Minister posted a heartfelt tweet early on Friday morning:
“A glorious century rests at the feet of God … In Maa, I have always felt that trinity, which contains the journey of an ascetic, the symbol of a selfless Karmayogi and a life committed to values.”
PM Modi recalled his visit to his mother on her 100th birthday this year.
“When I met her on her 100th birthday, she said one thing, which is [to] always remember that work with intelligence, live life with purity,” PM Modi tweeted.
