Modi gifts Aung San Suu Kyi a slice of her own past!

The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, today presented Myanmar State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi a special reproduction of the original research proposal that she had submitted for a fellowship at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study at Shimla in May 1986.

The research proposal was titled “The Growth and Development of Burmese and Indian Intellectual Traditions Under Colonialism: A Comparative Study.”

The gift is a rare one and is likely to bring old memories back to the State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.
