Salient Points of PM Narendra Modi’s address at the release of photo book titled “President Pranab Mukherjee – A Statesman” on 02 Jul, 2017

  • It is my view that we can be more history conscious as a society. We can preserve aspects of our history much better
  • Even today, to study about India our scholars have to go abroad and access the libraries there.
  • The Presidency is much more than protocol. Through the photographs in the book, we see the human side of our President & we feel proud
  • Two pictures of Bapu, one with a broom and the other, seeing something through a microscope, shows what a diverse personality he had
  • Technology is giving a boost to creativity
  • The newspapers show aspects of a leader but there are more aspects to a leader than only what is published in the papers
  • It is my privilege that I got to work with Shri Pranab Mukherjee
