In the last edition of this year’s monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi conveyed Christmas greetings and talked about the teachings of Jesus Christ and his commitment to the service of mankind. He also paid tributes to Guru Gobind Singh and said that his extraordinary life of courage inspires us all. He urged the people to shape their lives according to the teachings of Guru Gobind Singh, who fought against oppression and injustice.
Modi also referred to his last Mann Ki Baat address, where he had talked about the importance of positivity. He said that a person full of enthusiasm can overcome all hurdles. He gave an example of Anjum Bashir Khan Khattak, who excelled in the Kashmir Administrative Service (KAS) exam. Khattak’s ancestral home, Modi said, was burnt by terrorists in the 1990s but he never lost hope. “He chose to serve the people of the country,”said PM Modi.
