Prime Minister Narendra Modi is back to India after a very busy multi-nation trip, where he spent most of his time commuting from one country to another. From Delhi to Lisbon to Washington DC to Netherlands, and then back to Delhi, pheww! This is how he travelled in the trip totalling a little over 95 hours. Yes, you read it right. Even though PM Modi has been criticised for having a number of foreign trips in the past, this one is an inspiration, don’t you think?
Well, this well-managed trip of PM Modi is an inspiration to those who find it difficult to manage their time. Uum, take a cue!
According to a report in Economic Times, out of the 95 hours, PM Modi spent 33 hours flying his Air India Boeing and he spent the rest of time in his 33 back-to-back engagements and meetings in different countries including the United States. How he did that?
Well, PM Modi adhered to his rule of not spending a night in the country uncles and until he has a meeting scheduled for the next day, and therefore, he did not spend a night in Netherlands and Portugal. According to the report, he flew from Delhi to Lisbon where he had a briefing in the VVIP lounge of the Lisbon Airport, from where he directly went to Portugal’s Foreign Ministry.
After his meetings, PM Modi visited the Champalimaud Foundation, and went to Lisbon Airport and flew for Washington DC. After an eight-hour flight to the US, he checked into the Willard Continental Hotel where he had 17 engagements over the next two days. Rather than staying the next night in Washington DC, he chose to fly to Netherlands where he had about seven engagements, and then he flew straight to Delhi.
Pheww! So, what do you think?
