"Michhami Dukkadam. May the spirit of forgiveness & compassion enhance the spirit of harmony & togetherness in our society," Modi wrote on Twitter.

Paryushan Parva is a major festival of Jains which lasts for seven days culminating in 'Samvatsari Parvi'.

On this day, Jains greet each other by saying "Michhami Dukkadam" and observe a whole-day fast.

'Michhami Dukkadam' is an ancient phrase from Prakrit language, which is uttered by one seeking forgiveness for any ill-will or bad deeds and offering a renewal of relationship.
