Taking about a book "Save the Sparrows" which was sent by one Jagat Bhai from Gujarat, Modi said, "we are traditionally imbued with a sense of symbiotic co-existence with animals, birds and nature yet it is necessary that collective efforts in this regard should be emphasized".

Giving a pep talk to the youth during his monthly radio programme "Mann ki Baat", Modi also encouraged them to pack their bags and venture out and see new places instead of staying indoors during the holidays.

"Do something out of the box, my friends", he urged them and went onto say, "This is a country full of diversity and if you look, then there can be someone who can teach us something new is just around the corner".

He even added that during his last address he highlighted the issue of food wastage and this problem received a lot of reaction which is recommendable.
