A devastating earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday registering 7.9 on the Richter scale, leaving more than 4,300 dead so far. India has stepped up and offered all the aid possible to Nepal.
Sadly, what should be seen as India’s duty has now developed into the self-serving #ThankYouPM hashtag on Twitter.
The PM, however, was extremely modest on Twitter and noted that it is our culture that teaches us “Seva Parmo Dharma” or “It is our highest duty to serve others.” He also added that we should instead thank youngsters who are mobilising aid to Nepal, volunteers, doctors, NDRF teams and aid workers who are on the ground working hard to return normalcy to Nepal.
