Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with children outside the hotel in Tokyo. One Japanese kid left Modi impressed with his Hindi.
The grade-5 boy was waiting for the Prime Minister with a drawing of the Indian flag. The Prime Minister praised him for his fluency in Hindi as the boy introduced himself to Mr Modi in Hindi.
“Waah….Kahan se seekh liya tumney Hindi (Where did you learn Hindi…you know it pretty well),” the Prime Minister told his young host.
“…Can’t speak Hindi much, but I understand…Prime Minister read my message, and I also got his signature, so I am very happy…,” said Wizuki later.
Besides attending the crucial Quad Summit and interacting with US President Joe Biden and new Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Mr Modi has said that strengthening the India-Japan Special Strategic and Global Partnership will be the aim of his visit.
The Prime Minister is in Japan for a two-day visit to attend the Quad summit.
“Landed in Tokyo. Will be taking part in various programmes during this visit including the Quad Summit, meeting fellow Quad leaders, interacting with Japanese business leaders and the vibrant Indian diaspora,” PM Modi tweeted in both Japanese and English.
