Dr Syama Prasad Mukherjee’s death anniversary was on June 23. Three sectors were very dear to him – education, administration and parliamentary affairs. Do you know he was the youngest vice-chancellor of Calcutta University? He was only 33 when he became the vice-chancellor of the university.

Guru Nanak Dev taught us to end caste-based discrimination and to embrace the entire humanity. He has said that the service of the poor and the needy is the service of God. Guru Nanak Dev started the system of langar where people of all religion, caste, creed and community can come and eat together.

When “I” was then Hari was not, Now Hari “is” and “I” am not…all the darkness mitigated, when I saw the light within.

Saint Kabir Das through his Dohas laid emphasis on equality, peace and brotherhood. We find these ideas in his creations and they are still inspiring.

9. PM on his travel experience.

Over the last few days, I have been interacting with beneficiaries of various initiatives of the Government of India. I learnt a lot from their experiences and life journeys.

10. On Sports

Sport is a great medium for the integration of society. It is also a great medium to find out the talent in the youths. I congratulate India and Afghanistan cricket teams. I hope they will keep playing the game against each other with sportsman spirit.
