Dear all Hindu brethren around the globe
It is just a great moment of joy that Bharat (Hindoosthan) is being represented as a ancient old cultural Hiundu Rashtra. Modi ji presented books on Swami Vivekananda and copy of Gita ji proves the symbol of our nationhood. Never before such things has happened. We pray that this continues for many Lok Sabha elections by Modi ji and beyond!

INDIA, JAPAN SIGN MoU TO DEVELOP VARANASI INTO 'SMART CITY’
PTI | Kyoto | August 30, 2014 5:03 pm
'This will serve as framework for Smart heritage city programme between the two countries'
Varanasi, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi represents in the Lok Sabha, will be developed into a ‘smart city’ by using the experience of Kyoto, the ‘smart city’ of Japan, under a pact signed here today.
A Partner City MoU was signed by Indian Ambassador Deepa Wadhwa and Kyoto Mayor Daisaka Kadokawa at a ceremony witnessed by Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.
The MoU, which was signed soon after Modi’s arrival here on a five-day visit, provides for cooperation in heritage conservation, city modernisation and cooperation in the fields of art, culture and academics, External Affairs Ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin told reporters.
This will serve as framework for Smart heritage city programme between the two countries, he added.
Kyoto, which is a heritage city with Buddhist culture, provides special symbolism to the visit as the Prime Minister has the vision of “rejuvenating” Indian cities.
