Singapore: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday purchased a Madhubani painting using a RuPay card during his visit to the Indian Heritage Centre in Singapore. Madhubani painting (or Mithila art) is practised in the Mithila region of India and Nepal.
PM Modi received a rapturous welcome on his arrival at the centre, which traces the journey of the Indian community in the Southeast Asian region and showcases the culture, heritage and history of Indian Singaporeans and it is located at Campbell Road in the Little India Precinct and was launched in 2015.
"Commendable efforts by the Indian Heritage Centre to bring Singapore and India even closer. Using a RuPay card, I bought a splendid Madhubani painting," PM Modi tweeted.
