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 !

Our youth are our pride, the people who will take our nation to newer heights of progress. It is our first and foremost duty to help our youngsters when they face any trouble or ailment.

7-year-old Vaishali from Pune belongs to a lesser-privileged family and was suffering from a hole in her heart for more than two years. Imagine the ordeal she would have had to suffer all these years!

When young Vaishali decided to write a letter to the Prime Minister seeking help for a heart ailment little did she know that the Prime Minister would not only reply to help her but also personally meet her and boost her morale.

Vaishali’s two-page letter was an emotional plea to the Prime Minister of India, to help her as his daughter so that her dream of becoming a police officer comes true.

Taking cognizance of the letter, the Prime Minister asked officials to ensure Vaishali was identified, she get access to proper medical examination and her treatment done free of cost.

Once this happened, Vaishali wrote a very touching letter to the Prime Minister and attached a drawing with the letter, to which the also Prime Minister replied.

Then, when the Prime Minister visited Pune on 25th June 2016, he personally met young Vaishali and her family. Shri Modi said that this meeting will remained etched in his memory.

The anecdote of Vaishali is just one example. Several such letters from people reach the Prime Minister and his office. Every effort is made to address the issue concerned and ensure the citizens of India face no trouble.
