On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother Hiraba passed away at Ahmedabad’s UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre. She was cremated at Gandhinagar’s Sector 30 crematorium. Her death was announced in a bulletin from the hospital, where she was admitted on Wednesday. About 3.30am, she passed away.
On her passing away, PM Modi said, “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.” He added, “When I met her on her 100th birthday, she said one thing which I always remember: work with intelligence, live life with purity”.
