On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Uttar Pradesh's Vrindavan to serve meal to underprivileged school children at Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir campus. "The prime minister will serve food to about 20 schoolchildren from underprivileged background in the campus, marking the three billionth meal offered by Akshaya Patra," Naveena Neerada Dasa, head of strategic communications in ISKCON had reportedly said, referring to an initiative taken by Akshay Patra Foundation, a non-profit organisation aiming to provide wholesome meals to school children.
The Prime Minister later shared a video on social media, wherein he is seen interacting with the children happily. However, his encounter with a witty girl is particularly interesting. "Barah baje milna chahiye tha khana. Der se aaya Pradhan Mantri, aap ka khana late ho gaya, hai na? (The meal should have been served at 12 noon. The Prime Minister arrived late and delayed your meal, isn't it?)," he jokingly asked. But! a little girl was prompt enough to answer, "Hum subah khaa ke aaye the (We ate in the morning and came here)." Even Modi chuckled!
