I live simple, I eat simple & dress simple. It’s another thing that my simplicity has turned into fashion for some! – Narendra Modi
Nation’s heart-throb, a big enemy of Black Money holders and Honorable Prime Minister of common Indians, Mr. Narendra Modi believes in simplicity. Being one of the most searched men on Google, Mr. Modi has created a revolution in India by banning higher denomination Indian currencies of Rs 500 and Rs. 1000, thus taking a major step to improve the financial system of India. Well, hats off to our P.M. because to do this, one really needs a 56 inches chest. :)
Now, here’s what your foodie friend have for you. If you are a fan of our P.M., you will love to know what are the foods that he loves to eat. (I can’t think beyond foods and writing ). In one of his interviews, Mr. Modi said,
“For over 35 years I had to seek food and ate wherever I go I never asked people to make something special for me. I like Khichdi very much. But then, I eat whatever I get. I want my health to be such that it won’t be a burden for the nation. Till my last breath, I want to remain a healthy human being.”
All the healthy vegetarian foods (Narendra Modi is a pure vegetarian) that our lovable P.M loves to eat is prepared by his personal cook Badri Meena, who accompanies him wherever he goes.
