London: The tiny heritage village of Aranmula has, yet again come in the eyes of the international arena with Prime Minister Narendra Modi presenting the wife of his British counterpart the famed Aranmula Kannadi. “For First Lady Samantha Cameron, Narendra Modi presented Aranmula metal mirror, a unique GI protected handicraft from Kerala, and some pashmina stoles,” tweeted Modi.

On friday, Narendra Modi who is on a visit to England, gifted David Cameron a specially handcrafted pair of bookends with verses from Bhagavad Gita engraved on it and a book compiling letters sent by Indian soldiers during the World War I when they served in France.

“Presented PM @David_Cameron a specially handcrafted pair of bookends made of wood, marble and silver,” he tweeted.

The centrepiece of each of these bookends is a silver bell which has a verse from the Bhagavad Gita etched in Sanskrit, along with its English meaning along the inside rim.

The international recognition imparted to the unique handcrafted mirror made of secret amalgams was a piece of triumphant news for natives of Aranmula. The spearheader of the tiny hamlet’s struggle against the evangelist sponsored land mafia that was trying to destroy the heritage village, Kummanam Rajashekhan tweeted in all jubilation, “Classic reply by our PMOIndia Narendra Modi to the forces who tried to destroy Aranmula and its heritage.”
