PM Modi shares an interesting anecdote

The Prime Minister highlighted the immediate nature of people’s reactions to astrology, narrating how he used this insight during his travels. “Let me tell you an experience related to my childhood. I used to travel a lot. At that time, there was no facility for reservation in the train and it used to be very crowded… I used to travel in unreserved compartments… When I didn’t get a seat, I used to see if there was a chance. I used to hold someone’s hand and start looking at him like an astrologer. After this people used to immediately provide me seats,” he added.


The Prime Minister’s interesting story led to a huge laughter among people present at the award ceremony. PM Modi shared this anecdote while presenting an award to Aridaman, a content creator specializing in videos on religion, culture, and astrology.
