New Delhi,May 20 (): Narendra Modi’s fitness mantra has been the talk of the town. He toured the length and breadth of the country and his energetic speeches were a cause for envy to his detractors.

As Gujarat CM, he steered the state to an economic growth, a point disputed by Congress. Narendra Modi’s televised speeches, walking gait and 52 inch chest as well his height has caught eyeballs.
Narendra Modi’s daily schedule of fitness is his combination of yoga and diet as well as his waking habits. Narendra Modi, 63 (September 17, 1950), real name Narendra Damodardas Modi, starts his day at 5 am. However late he sleeps, he wakes up at 5 am. He does an hour of hour yoga.
By then, the newspapers come in; he sifts through them and reads mainly news/articles that are critical of him. If he is travelling then his office sends him cuttings of news that are critical. A vegetarian, he likes rotis that are crispy known as bhakri along with Gujarati khichdi.
Narendra Modi likes South Indian foods – idli and dosa. Yet another favourite is poha made out of flattened rice and a popular breakfast in Western Maharashtra and Gujarat.
