PM's Hush-Hush Hobby
We have all been told about how BJP's candidate for the prime minister's post, Narendra Modi, started out as a tea-vendor. But here is something that we didn't know.
The Telegraph, on Feb 17, published a story about PM Manmohan Singh's affinity for, well not exactly tea, but tea sets.
"Singh has been quietly building a collection of teacups, saucers and pots that he received as gifts from abroad and can be taken with him once he leaves 7 Race Course Road this May...Singh, known for his frugal lifestyle, has despatched to the government 38 of the 44 gifts he had received from heads of state and government, ambassadors and other foreign visitors since July last year...All the six gifts Singh has taken home are tea sets."
