New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi wakes up with a new zeal every morning and does not take any worries with him back home, he told Gulf News’ XPRESS ahead of his two-day UAE visit.

When asked about his daily routine, PM Modi said that he gets a “sound sleep every night”. "My sleep cycle varies from four to six hours, depending on the workload. But I get a sound sleep every night. In fact, I fall asleep minutes after hitting the bed,” Modi, 67, said.

"I do not take any worry with me and wake up fresh every morning and welcome the new day in my life," he said. Modi said his day begins with yoga. "It refreshes me and keeps me agile through the day," he said, adding that he then scans the newspapers, checks e-mails and makes a round of phone calls.

"I also spend time reading some comments and feedback shared by citizens on the 'Narendra Modi Mobile App',” which he said was "a wonderful way to remain connected with people across India."

"Before hitting the bed, I read the documents sent to me during the day. I also prepare for the next day's meetings and engagements," he said.

Asked about his favourite dish, Modi said, "I am not much of a foodie. I enjoy a simple vegetarian meal every day."

On his favourite day of the week, he said, "Today is my favourite day of the week! I believe in a simple tenet - make the most of today, live life to the fullest. Today is the only day on our hands to work hard and make things happen."

When asked whether he has had a holiday, Modi told the Gulf paper: "I have not been on a holiday either as Chief Minister or now as Prime Minister. However, my work does require me to travel across India and interact with people, learn about their joys, sorrows and aspirations. This is refreshing and rejuvenating for me."

He said he was a firm believer in the power of technology as it empowers people. When asked the one person who inspires him the most, the prime minister replied that several people inspired him and listed Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Bhagat Singh, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar as well as Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States.
