Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 24th, 2019 shared some tips to manage anger in an interview with Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar. Modi told actor Kumar that he believes that anger entails negativity.
Modi said, “I do not express my anger. Over the years, I have trained myself to not express anger, instead, I try to get the best out of the situation by inspiring others.”
“Anger entails negativity and there is always another way to of dealing with it. I used to write a detailed note of unpleasant incidents and then tear it and throw it away. I repeated this several times and by the end of it, I usually had a different perspective of the whole incident. It helped in self-realisation”, Modi said in the freewheeling chat with the actor where he spoke about everything except politics.
When Kumar asked about his strictness persona, the Prime Minister revealed that he is strict and disciplined but he never gets angry or insults a person. He added, “being strict, disciplined and getting angry are two different things.”
