It is natural to ask – what is it that the Prime Minister of India likes to eat? Is he someone who relishes food.

An insight to this was given by Narendra Modi, who said:

“Those who work in public life, their lives are very irregular. So, if one wants to be active in public life, one needs to have a tough stomach.

For 35 years, working in various organizational capacities meant I had to travel all over the nation and I had to seek food and would eat whatever I got.I never asked people to make something special for me.

I like Khichdi very much. But then, I eat whatever I get.”

He added, “I want my health to be such that it wont be a burden for the nation. Till my last breath I want to remain a healthy human being.”

The role of the Prime Minister entails a lot of travelling and a lot of banquets to attend. He does enjoy the local vegetarian cuisines served in every banquet. Being a teetotaler, his glass invariably has water or a juice instead of any alcoholic beverage.

"Jaago Bharat Ke Laal" — How PM Modi motivated citizens to keep up the fight against Article 370

On 5th August 2019, in a historic move, Article 370 and Article 35 A were abrogated. This led to complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of the country.

The temporary Articles, which were in place for almost 70 odd years, denied rights to the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. Both these Articles were a huge hurdle in development of the region. Abrogation of these Articles fulfilled the dream of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and countless citizens.

Since the early 90s, Shri Narendra Modi had raised his voice against the Article 370 and motivated people to keep up their fight against it. He spread awareness how the Abrogation of these Articles would benefit our nation.

Bhavna Thakur, a Karyakarta from Gujarat reminisced the time when Shri Modi, during the organisational days, used to discuss about the Article 370. In a video, she said, "When Modi Ji used to take lectures during the organisational days, he would tell us a lot about the nation as well as the Article 370. He talked about the difficulties we had to face due to the Article 370 and how its abrogation will be good for the nation."

Smt. Thakur further said that to motivate all the Karyakartas, Shri Modi even used to sing a song.

"The song is in Gujarati. It goes like: Kashmir Bharat Nu Kevay, Eto Koi Thi Na Chhinvay, Jando Farki Rahio Chhe Hindustan No, Jaago Jaago Re Bharat Maa Na Laal, which means wake up all Indians, no one can take Kashmir from us. It is an integral part of our nation and will always be," recalled Bhavna Thakur.
