Narendra Modi was the target of Patna blasts, says NIA chief www.ambitionias.com
  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi  gave the example of Indians and Anzacs fighting shoulder-to-shoulder in Gallipoli in 1915 to highlight the historic ties between the two countries.
  • More than that, it was the PM's announcement that the two countries would partner commemorative events as part of the centenary of the First World War that brought cheer to many .
  • It was the first acknowledgement by the Indian establishment of India's significant role in the Great War that has hitherto been a taboo topic.
  • It all started with PM Modi's trip to the Australian War Memorial.
  • The red poppy badge he was wearing, a symbol of Remembrance Day events across Britain and the Commonwealth, was unmistakable.
  • Modi presented the replica of a First World War trophy belonging to the Sikh Regiment to Australian PM Tony Abbott.
  • The replica has the miniature statue of Jemadar Man Singh of 14 King George's Own Ferozepore Sikhs lobbing a jam-tin bomb at the enemy in Gallipoli.
