Prime Minister Narendra Modi was live with his 68th edition of Mann Ki Baat on Sunday and it was another episode of insights into what he preaches, what he wishes the world to be like and what one can contribute to take it on that way.
In his address to the nation, PM Modi spoke about the importance of social distancing, especially at a time when India made a world record of reporting the highest-ever single day coronavirus cases on 30 August. Further, he talked about how Make in India apps are gaining popularity after Chinese apps ban, the importance of toy in a child’s development, and the incredible contribution of teachers in the ensuing pandemic.
PM Modi also mentioned two Army dogs who were honoured with ‘Commendation Cards’ on Independence Day. Talking about, Sophie and Vida, PM urged his countrymen to adopt loyal Indian breed canines who were easy to maintain.
The two dogs were all over the web yesterday and so were their stories of bravery. While pooch Vida was key in the detection of five mines and a grenade, Sophie, an explosive detection dog saved lives by sniffing out the accelerant used to initiate makeshift bombs.
