How is that Narendra Modi never gets tired? What is the source of his energy that he can keep up with such a demanding schedule, weeks after weeks and yet deliver with machine like consistency the same quality of work every time? This is a question that has often been asked by both supporters of the Prime Minister and indeed those who critically analyze him.
This question was posed directly to him in the first ever Townhall by and in a recent television by a New Delhi based media house. The answer that Narendra Modi gave made practical sense from his personal point of view but has deep philosophical connotations as well - tiredness is never because of working hard to achieve a mission but more a mental state about work left unfinished or pending. To quote from Modi's own words in the interview to Rahul Joshi, "Actually we get tired by not working and work gives you satisfaction. That satisfaction gives you energy. I have felt this and always tell this to my young friends. Tiredness is more psychological. Everyone has the same capacity needed for the volume of the work. You keep accepting new challenges and your inner self will always back you. This is in-built."
His mantra is simple yet profound - If you are enjoying your work you would never feel tired because you are doing what you are enjoying !
