Schooling is over, but our learning process lasts for ages, every day. Books and authors also play a major role in this.”
According to an official release, the iconic Gate is built by the Patrika Group of newspapers on the Jawaharlal Nehru Marg in Jaipur.
PM Modi released two books written by the Patrika Group of Newspaper Chairman. “In our country, writing has developed continuously with Indianness and nationality. During the freedom struggle, almost every big name was associated with writing from somewhere. We also have great saints and scientists who are writers,” Pm Modi was quoted as saying by The Times Of India.
He added further, “Shri Karpoor Chandra Kulish Ji started the tradition of the magazine only with the determination of Indianness, and service to India. We all remember his contribution to journalism, but the way Kulishji tried to spread the knowledge of Vedas to the society, it was truly amazing.”
