The content of ‘Mann ki Baat’ will be soon available in an e-book format. Prime minister Narendra Modi announced this while delivering the talk with the US president Barack Obama during his famous radio programme aired on January 27.
Modi also proposed to involve the listeners of the show by inviting them to share their thoughts and experiences through social media using #YesWeCan.
“We would select the best hundred thoughts by listeners and would add them to the e-book containing the talk between me and Barack,” said Modi.
It may be noted that this was the first time a US president and an Indian prime minister jointly delivered a talk on radio.
Both the leaders answered also took questions from listeners, with topics ranging from their (Modi and Obama’s) inspirations as young leaders to their visions.
Here is the full transcript of the programme
The prime minister has been addressing the nation over radio every month since October last year through the ‘Mann ki Baat’ programme.
The programme is aimed at making fellow Indians recognise their inherent abilities and draw out workable suggestions that would contribute to nation-building.
Through his radio broadcast, the PM believes, everyone would be engaged in governance, as, he says, governance is not the task of the government alone. Earlier, Modi has raised the issue of cleanliness, drug addiction and education in the programme.
