Prime Minister Narendra Modi might be known for his rhetoric but like all other world leaders he too uses a teleprompter.

Unfortunately for Mr. Modi, this morning, his teleprompter let him down.

It was while Mr. Modi was addressing the Sri Lankan President, Maithripala Sirisena and his wife who are on a four-day tour of India. Modi, while addressing the Sri Lankan First Lady managed to read out the acronym 'M.R.S' and called her M.R.S Sirisena, instead of Mrs Sirisena.


Not very long back, a DD news anchor lost her job when she referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as 'Eleven' Jinping.
