Modi presents Cameron with gifts

London, Nov 13 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Friday presented his British counterpart David Cameron with specially handcrafted bookends made of wood, marble and silver.

Each pair of bookends has a silver bell which symbolises inner wisdom and is engraved with a Sanskrit verse from the Bhagavad Gita along with its English rendering, an official statement said.

Keeping in mind Cameron’s fondness for Robert Graves’s work on World War I, ‘Goodbye to All That’, Modi also presented to him David Omissi’s ‘Indian Voices of the Great War’.

To the first lady, the Indian prime minister presented Aranmula metal mirror, a unique handicraft from Kerala, and pashmina stoles.

Friday is the second day of Modi’s three-day visit to Britain.
