As wishes continue to pour in for Narendra Modi ahead of his swearing-in as the Prime Minister for the second time, one wish stood out for striking all the right notes. Noted Hindustani classical singer Channulal Mishra sang a short, self-written song in praise of PM Modi.
The Padma Bhushan awardee blessed and congratulated Narendra Modi by singing a song in Hindi and Awadhi. The song describes PM Modi as the incarnation of Lord Ram and compares his mother to Kaushalya.
"Everything good happens with God's blessings. It's a big and auspicious day for Kashi and for Modi Ji," the noted singer told news agency ANI with a broad smile.
