Even as he ac­com­pa­nied former prime min­is­ter Atal Bi­hari Va­j­payee’s funeral pro­ces­sion on foot, Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi en­sured he didn’t ne­glect his of­fi­cial du­ties. So, on the morn­ing of the funeral, he held a quick bi­lat­eral meet­ing with Bhutanese king Jigme Kh­e­sar, who had come to pay his re­spects to Va­j­payee, at the party’s head­quar­ters. Mul­ti­ple is­sues, in­clud­ing the up­com­ing Au­gust 30 meet­ing of the Bay of Ben­gal Ini­tia­tive for Multi-Sec­toral Tech­ni­cal and Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion (BIMSTEC) in Nepal, were dis­cussed at the 30-minute meet­ing. That very evening, the PM was also on­board a flight to in­spect the flood sit­u­a­tion in Ker­ala. Clearly, the word fa­tigue is not a part of the Modi lex­i­con.
