Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi on Saturday (2 November) released a commemorative coin marking the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev besides releasing a Thai translation of the Tamil classic 'Tirukkural' at the 'Sawasdee PM Modi' community event in Bangkok.

PM Modi, who arrived in Thailand earlier yesterday, later addressed the Indian diaspora. "Immense fervour at the 'Sawasdee PM Modi' community event in Bangkok," he tweeted from his official Twitter handle.

'Tirukkural' is written by poet Thiruvalluvar and has been translated into many languages. The Tamil community in Thailand got it translated into Thai language for the first time, as PM Modi released the translation.
