Hiraben, who stays with Modi's younger brother Pankaj, showed to the media a green box, which contained the gift, marked with Pakistan's emblem and "Mother of the Prime Minister of India" written on it.

She opened the box and showed the message written inside - "With the compliments of Prime Minister of Pakistan." While opening the box, Hiraben kept smiling and looked at the 'white sari' gifted by Sharif for a while.

However, she did not speak to the media but apparently expressed her gratitude by folding hands.
