Looking back on the gift of Shawl to Nawaz Sarif’s mother what a class act by Narendra Modi.
Narendra Modi gifted Nawaz Sharif a beautiful shawl for his mother and a compilation of Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s poetry as a symbol of affection and respect.
Checkout this video:
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, Maryam on Tuesday expressed her gratitude & respect to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a beautiful gift for her grandmother.
Maryam on her twitter handle @MaryamNSharif wrote that her father was so impressed with the gift that he personally delivered the shawl to his mother
“This time when he was eating with his Mother he saw visuals on TV of my Mother offering me sweets. The visuals touched both Nawaz Sharifji & his Mother. He told me that after seeing the visuals his Mother got very emotional.”
-Mr Modi tweeted the above.
Anyone could have easily ignored this remark, but not Narendra Modi. He found deeper meaning into it, found a way to connect at even higher and more meaningful level. I do not have a daughter, but I am assuming that the biggest strength (and may be the weakness) that can make a man emotional is his mother and then the daughter. I can definitely vouch for the mother part. Narendra Modi did not just want to connect with Nawaz Sharif, but he wanted to be “All Inclusive”, knowing very well that at some point, these two women have some role to play in the steps Nawaz Sharif takes.
This was very obvious in the response that Maryam posted on twitter, thanking the PM even before Nawaz Sharif mentioned anything about it.
The fact that Nawaz Sharif delivered the shawl personally, also tells a lot about the symbolic value of the gift to him and what his mother means to him. This is the way to solve the world problem with Love, not with Guns.0
