Temperatures are rising. No wonder this time when I asked for suggestions for #MannKiBaat, people wrote about the summers: PM- PMO India (@PMOIndia) April 30, 2017
PM Modi also suggested everyone offer water to each person who visits one's home.
During summers, many people come to our homes...postmen, milkmen, vegetable sellers...always offer them water (particularly in summers) :PM- PMO India (@PMOIndia) April 30, 2017
PM Modi's words seem to have really impacted people as many have tweeted about either already following the practice or beginning it in their homes after his words. Among those who have posted about PM Modi's advice is Akshay Kumar. The actor not only tweeted a clip from PM Modi's speech but also posted a video of his daughter feeding milk to stray cats.

Business tycoon Anand Mahindra and singer Kailash Kher also posted about PM Modi's advice.

Several others have been tweeting about PM Modi's advice. Some also shared pictures of their homes.
