Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take oath for the second consecutive term this evening, exactly a week after he stormed back to power on May 23, but his day began at the crack of dawn. The memorial of Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat was one of the first places PM Modi visited in the national capital at 7 am. He also paid his respects at the memorial of late Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Sadaiv Atal Samadhi, the lotus-shaped monument dedicated to Mr Vajpayee - who led India between 1996 and 2004 - was inaugurated last December, a few months after his death on August 16. He then visited the National War Memorial near India Gate. The monument, spread over 40 acres, is dedicated to soldiers killed in service of the country over the decades.
