"…And after his speech, our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, bid farewell to him in a very teary eyes. He was visibly seen holding back his tears.

"…Hey, Vikram, I don't think crying should be taboo. I understand that it can be unsettling for people to witness, especially at the workplace. But, you know, there are moments when you can't help, but you're up. I did see see the Prime Minister speech yesterday where he was emotional about the retirement of Galamna Biazad.
