Prime Minister Modi seen picking up Indian flag lying on ground

The flag serves as a potent symbol, symbolizing resilience, unity, and harmony. Beyond being a mere fabric, it encapsulates the unwavering and proud essence of a nation, firmly rooted in the hearts of its citizens. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s gesture of honoring India’s national flag during the group photo session at the ongoing BRICS summit in South Africa has garnered widespread approval, earning the admiration of numerous individuals.

During the BRICS summit in Johannesburg, Prime Minister Modi and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa entered the stage for the group photo session. Modi, displaying considerate attention, carefully avoided stepping on the small tricolor placed on the stage. In a video capturing the incident, both leaders took their positions, and notably, Modi promptly retrieved the miniature tricolor, handling it delicately before placing it in his pocket.

This gesture caught the attention of South African President Ramaphosa and he immediately took out his country’s flag and gave it to one of his colleagues. A woman present there offers to take the Indian flag from Prime Minister Modi, but he gestures that it is okay, as can be seen in the video.

The dignitaries shown in the group photo include Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Chinese President Xi Jinping, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, PM Narendra Modi and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

The viral video has received millions of views and likes. Many Indian users shared their reactions after watching the viral video. One user writes, ‘Small things make a man great respect.’

Another user writes, ‘This is the reason why India will become superpower till 2050.’
