New Delhi: At the Red Fort Ground in New Delhi last evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took aim with a bow and arrow at the effigy of Ravana as a symbolic gesture to mark Dussehra festivities.
But it was not meant to be.
As the PM drew the string of the bow, the shot failed. Undeterred, the PM tried again, only to realise that the bow had broken.
Thinking quickly, the PM then threw the arrow with his hand like a javelin, a smile on his face.
On stage next to Mr Modi were former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Ram Nath Kovind.
