  • If a postman, or delivery person comes to your home, keeping the severe heat in mind, we must ask them if they want water.
  • During summers, many people come to our homes...postmen, milkmen, vegetable sellers...always offer them water.
  • Many youth  in our country are in a comfort zone as exams are over, plans must be made for vacations. I want to speak to you all as a friend.
  • My young friends, make these holidays about new experiences, new skills and new places.
  • Pursue sports in the holidays. Also go play with children of nearby areas.
  • Let us bridge the gap between rich and poor... not just in terms of money, but also in terms of interaction. Children, both rich and poor, must come together and play together. In fact, I urge you all young people to take their bats and footballs and go to the playground and play with poor children. We all must bond with each other.
  • I am sure there is so much to learn...and people have so much to teach. These must meet and new skills must be taught and learnt.
  • In every aspect, ours is a very diverse nation, and it is unity in diversity which is our biggest strength.

More and more people have started using mobiles to make digital payments. This is the future, and it is great to see the pace at which India is switching to a less-cash economy.
  • Bitter atmosphere of VIP culture in our country. Lal batti became a symbol of VIP culture slowly it moved to our minds as well.
