My face glows because..: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has went on to meet the winners of the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar and had a chitchat with them at his residence on Friday. One student from the event asked Modi - what’s the secret behind his radiant face all the time. It is true that Modi's face indeed glows like a satin. But the answer which the PM gave is unexpected or beyond our imagination.

He said "I had a simple answer. I said I work hard and I sweat so much that I massage my face with it and it gives me a glow". While emphasizing on hard work, Modi also advised students to work hard and 'sweat hard'. PM Modi said that children should sweat at least "four times a day". PM added that he gets inspired by these children who have won National awards.

"When I was getting introduced to you a while back, I was really surprised. The way you all have tried in different fields, the work that has been done at such a young age... is amazing. Whenever I hear about such courageous work of all you young comrades, talk to you, I also get inspiration and energy," Modi added.

The children, aged between 5-18 years have been awarded the Pradhan Mantri Bal Puraskar awards as they have contributed profoundly in various sectors like innovation, social service, scholastic, sports, art and culture, and bravery. The awards usually consist of  a medal, a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh, a certificate and a citation.
