During this, he addressed the event through video conferencing and said that Visva-Bharati is a true embodiment of Gurudev’s contemplation, vision and hard work for Mother Bharati. In his address, PM Modi gave interesting information about the beginning of women wearing inverted pallu saris.
How the trend of left side pallu started
PM Narendra Modi (Narendra Modi) Said, ‘Gyanandini Devi (Jnanadanandini Devi), the elder brother of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore and wife of the country’s first ICS officer Satyendranath Tagore, taught women to tie the sari’s pallu on the left shoulder.
There was a problem with placing the pallu on the right shoulder
Prime Minister Modi said, ‘Gurudev Rabindranath’s elder brother Satyendra Nath was appointed as ICS officer in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Satyendranath’s wife Gyanandini lived in Ahmedabad. Local women used to place pallu on the right shoulder, which made it difficult for women to work. Gyanandini Devi figured out – why not take Pallu on the left shoulder.
This should be studied: PM
PM Narendra Modi said, Now I do not know exactly but say- The sari’s pallu on the left shoulder is due to him (Gyanandini Devi). Organizations associated with Women’s Empowerment should study this fact.
PM mentions Rabindranath Tagore’s Gujarat relations
During this time, Prime Minister Modi also mentioned the deep ties between Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore and Gujarat. Prime Minister Modi said, ‘When I talk about Gurudev, I cannot stop the temptation to remember the intimacy of Gurudev and Gujarat.

Our country is one with diversity. Has been learning a lot from each other.
