Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mother Heeraben Modi passed away on Friday at the age of 99. Hiraben's marriage took place at the young age of 15-16 years. Due to the monetary crisis and family condition of the house, she did not get a chance to study.
Even though Heeraben did not get a chance to study herself but she made sure that her children are receiving education and for that worked in other's houses to earn money. She never borrowed money from anyone to pay the fees.
PM Modi's love for his mother is profound. He often remembers his mother's words of wisdom. He also mentioned Heeraben in many programmes. On Heera Ba's 100th birthday, Prime Minister Modi wrote in his blog that his mother Heeraben was born in Palanpur, Visnagar, Mehsana district of Gujarat. It is very close to Vadnagar. Hiraba's mother i.e. PM Modi's maternal grandmother died at a young age from the Spanish flu epidemic. Heeraben could not even remember her mother's face. Hiraba spent her entire childhood without her mother.
