Yes. This is the same person who won the Orwellian show ‘Big Brother’ in the UK. I mean, why Shilpa, why? Even a spoof video from AIB cannot rescue you out of this.
Narendra Modi Becomes The First PM to Serve Langar At Amritsar’s Harmandir Sahib
While it is indeed commendable to be so powerful yet humble, the kind of attention is giving to Narendra Modi serving devotees at the Langar is weird. It is good to see him do what probably no Prime Minister has done before and I am not going to call his said humility a gimmick, but c’mon people, he did what he did.
