Watch how Modi paid his respects to Parliament House


Symbolism matters. And the kind of symbolism people in high places engage in often decides the nature of things down the line. It is customary for Prime Ministers to engage in skull cap politics while at the same time treat the Parliament. the temple of Indian democracy, with contempt that amounts to bring pepper spray cans into the well of the house and throwing chairs at each other. In a scenario like this, Narendra Modi brought a never seen before respect for the Parliament building. On Tuesday, on his way to the central hall, Narendra Modi bowed down and paid his respects, indicating that in the days to come, the place will be treated with more respect than it has found so far.
