Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has started giving interviews to various media houses and now, he has given it to a Facebook Page ‘Humans of Bombay.’
In the interview, PM Modi has said that he has suffered a lot while he was growing up, and he remembers that ‘he used to take 5 day break yearly and went to forests and Himalayas to concentrate upon the life.’
PM Modi talked about his childhood, and how he grew up being a tea-seller and his stint at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological parent of the BJP.
The interview has been posted in installments on the ‘Humans of Bombay’ page and can be accessed freely. PM Modi said, “After coming back from the Himalayas, I knew that I wanted my life to be one that is lived in the service of others. Within a short span of returning, I left for Ahmedabad. It was my first brush with living in a big city - the pace of life was very different. I began my time there by occasionally helping my uncle at his canteen.”
PM Modi added that “Eventually, I became a full time Pracharak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. There, I got the opportunity to interact with people from different walks of life and do a wide range of work. We all took turns to clean the RSS office, prepare tea and food for colleagues and clean utensils.”
Giving a piece of advice to the youths of the nation, PM Modi suggested saying, “in the midst of your fast paced life and busy schedules, take some time off, think and introspect. It will change your perception - you will understand your inner self better.”
