Like millions of Indians, Hiraba Modi, nonagenarian mother of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was glued to the TV screen Thursday evening to watch her son taking the oath of office.

She lives with Pankaj Modi, the prime minister’s younger brother.

The prime minister visited her on May 26 to take blessings after the BJP’s resounding victory in the Lok Sabha polls.
