India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi usually meets with kids. He is very fond of children. On 11 August, the Wednesday, 10-year-old Anisha Patil arrived in Parliament to meet PM Modi. She was delighted and excited to meet PM Modi. For the past few months, Anisha requests her father and grandfather to arrange a meeting with PM Modi but they ignored her request.
Anisha is the granddaughter of veteran Maharashtra leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil and daughter of Ahmednagar Member of Parliament Dr. Sujay Vikhe Patil. She requested her father and grandfather for the past few months, but Dr. Sujay Vikhe Patil explained to her that what she asks for is difficult. A prime minister is a busy man, and he can't give her an appointment.
But when her father ignored and denied her request on the way out, 10-year-old Anisha one day used her father’s laptop and sent an email to the prime minister. She wrote a letter and said, “Hello Sir, I am Anisha, and I want to come and meet you.”
Conversation between PM Modi and Anisha
Anisha wrote in her mail, 'I am Anisha, and I want to meet you.' At the same time, a reply came in the mail, and the meeting time was in it. After getting this mail from PM Modi, Anisha's wish got fulfilled.
The next day all the family members of Vikhe Patil reached to meet the Prime Minister, but before meeting, PM Modi first asked, 'Where is Anisha?' He asked her to run and come. He said, “Daud Ke Chali aao beta." After the meeting with her, he talked to Anisha for 10 minutes and gave chocolates to her. While speaking with PM Modi, Anisha started asking questions to him like, do you sit here? Is this your office? Such a big office you have!
Prime Minister Modi answered her question and said, 'This is not my permanent office. PM Modi was replying to her question, but the innocent girl again said I came here to meet you because I wanted to talk to you.'' Anisha again asked, 'You are from Gujarat, right? So, when will you become the President of India?' PM Modi laughed at this. After asking this question, MP Sujay Patil stopped Anisha. Prime Minister Modi and Anisha talked for 10 minutes.
After meeting PM Modi Dr. Sujay Vikhe Patil tweeted about his meeting with PM Modi and wrote and shared pictures on his Twitter handle, “Today, I and my family met the Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in Delhi. We thanked the government for the various measures taken during the COVID period. During our visit, Prime Minister Modi called on my daughter Anisha, and he interacted with her. During this meeting, my father and MLA Shri Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil and my wife Dhanashree were also present.”
Ten-year-old Anisha wanted to meet PM Modi for several months and was requested by her family to finally meet the Prime Minister after getting the mail from PM Modi. However, in the busy times when Parliament is running, the Prime Minister is engaged with them. Taking out time out of such busy times to fulfill the heart's desire of a ten-year-old girl shows affection and kindness to children.
Some of the kids to whom PM Modi responded
This gesture is not the first time that PM Modi replied to children. Before this meeting, PM Modi has replied to a letter written by a girl named Aarushi Yadav, who congratulated BJP on their victory in 2019 for the Lok Sabha Elections.
After this, PM Modi responded to a Kashmiri girl complaining to PM Modi about the burden of homework. This little girl from Kashmir requested PM Modi for ongoing back-to-back classes for her, from 10 am to 2 pm. Her video was so famous that the J&K LT Governor also responded and asked schools to lighten the homework loads on kids.
J&K LT Governor retweeted that kid video and wrote, “Very adorable complaint. We have directed the school education department to provide a policy within 48 hours to lighten the burden of homework on school kids. Childhood innocence is a gift of God, and their days should be lively, full of joy and bliss.”
Two years ago, PM Modi retweeted a video of a small girl, trying to tell and explain the importance of keeping the surroundings clean. This little girl was from Kashmir, and PM Modi replied to her and said, “Hearing this little girl will make your morning even better! Great passion towards Swachhata.”
Every year he also holds the 'Parikasha Pe Charcha', a program for students that will appear in their board exams. This year 2021, this charcha was held virtually because of the ongoing Pandemic. The first edition of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha' was held, in 2018 at Talkatora Stadium for students.
