NEW DELHI: A great moment unfolded during the P20 Summit when Ana Lilia Rivera, the President of the Mexican Senate, ceremoniously tied a rakhi on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wrist. This symbolic act represented the deepening of bonds and relationships between India and Mexico, signifying the unity and goodwill that both nations share.
In response, PM Modi was observed placing his hand on her head in a blessing gesture, while Rivera accepted his blessings with both hands over her heart. Subsequently, they expressed gratitude to each other with folded hands in a namaskar pose.
The exchange of this sacred thread, a tradition typically observed during the Indian festival of Raksha Bandhan, beautifully demonstrated the sense of brotherhood and cooperation among the international leaders participating in the summit.
Earlier, PM Modi officially inaugurated the summit, commonly referred to as P20. The overarching theme for this year’s P20 Summit is ‘Parliaments for One Earth, One Family, One Future.’
