Prime Minister stood in meditation for a while before the Samadhi

Being a ‘window of French culture’, if I may use Jawaharlal Nehru’s famous words, Puducherry occupies a special place in our country. I am truly delighted to come to this historic city which became the home of one of India’s great spiritual thinkers Sri Aurobindo.

Earlier, the Prime Minister visited the more than 400-year-old Manakula Vinayakar temple, where he was received with temple honours.

Consequences of these is this that today atheists have mushroomed. Now, these atheists do not get bothered if someone offends their ancestors. 9:56 PM

Giving the final blow, Jethmalani concluded by saying, "Your occupying the august office will be a disgrace to the republic of India." Referring to names like Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, Swami Vivekananda, Chittaranjan Das and Sri Aurobindo ...
