Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently addressing the nation on the occasion of Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Nanak Dev. Right after the address, PM Modi will visit Uttar Pradesh to inaugurate key schemes relating to irrigation in Mahoba. He will then go to Jhansi for the ‘Rashtra Raksha Samparpan Parv.’
“On the special occasion of the Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, I recall his pious thoughts and noble ideals. His vision of a just, compassionate and inclusive society inspires us. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s emphasis on serving others is also very motivating,” tweeted PM Modi.
The last time the Prime Minister addressed the nation it was right after India scripted history by becoming only the second country after China to reach the one billion COVID-19 vaccinations milestone mark in October.
Guru Nanak Jayanti, also known as ‘Gurupurab’ is considered one of the most important festivals in Sikhism. The day marks the birth of Sri Guru Nanak Dev, who laid the foundation of Sikhism.
This year, the 552nd birth anniversary of the first Sikh Guru falls today (November 19). Guru Nanak was born on April 15, 1469, at Rai Bhoi Ki Talwandi, near Lahore, which is in the Sekhpura district of modern-day Pakistan.
