PM Modi underscored the importance of "recharging" not only electronic gadgets but also our bodies, drawing attention to the correlation between mobile phones needing charging and individuals requiring proper sleep. He remarked, "If your mobile requires to be charged, then shouldn't you keep your body charged as well? For this, getting proper sleep is also very important."

"There should be a 'no gadget zone' inside the home. When you are with your family, sitting at the dining table there should be no use of phones to communicate," he added.
