Akshay: Did you ever think that you will end up becoming the Prime Minister of India? If yes, at what age?
A common man never really thinks of it whose mother would have been distributing jaggery among neighbours. I never thought beyond that. This is surprising for me, sometimes I am amazed by that fact that why the country loves me so much
Akshay: Do you have friends in opposition?
PM Modi: Of course, I have many friends in the opposition he had said, “It’s not it is shown in media. The way we all are connected like a family, it cannot be imagined by anyone outside the parliament.” You won’t believe this but Mamata (Banerjee) Di sends me gifts. Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina used to send me sweets thrice a year, now after knowing that even Mamata di sends me sweets.
Akshay Kumar: What are your plans after retirement?
Narendra Modi: My body cycle has become such that I don’t feel like having more sleep. But one thing I will do after retirement is to explore how to sleep for more than 3-4 hours.
He further pledged to stay associated with a mission all through his life.
Akshay: Who is your fashion inspiration?
Narendra Modi: This is an interesting question. Coming from a poor family, I used to feel an inferiority complex. I used to wash my clothes myself till the time I became CM of Gujarat. But I have always liked to wear clean clothes. During my childhood, I used to iron my clothes by filling coal into a utensil. But I did not have shoes and my uncle was visiting me one day and he bought a pair of white canvas shoes. However, they got dirty after a few days and to whiten it, I used to grab the white chalks remainings from my classroom.
Akshay: Do you give a portion of your salary to your mother?
Narendra Modi: No, instead, my mother gives me money. Whenever I visit her, she would give me sawa rupaiye.
Akshay Kumar: How often do you get angry?
Narendra Modi: I am strict and disciplined. But I never intend to demean anyone. While serving as CM of Gujarat, I don’t remember I was angry with any officer or anyone else in the office. Anger gives rise to negativity.
