Prime Minister Narendra Modi today tweeted his blessings to a young girl, Belaku, who wanted his image on her birthday cake. Belaku’s father tweeted a photo of the birthday cake along with a message that caught the Prime Minister’s attention on social media.
“Today is my daughter Belaku’s birthday. I asked her ‘What do you want on your birthday?’ She said ‘I want Modi Ji’s photo on my birthday cake’ Indeed, PM Modi is a Chor… A Chor who has stolen even kid’s heart (sic),” tweeted Mahesh Vikram Hegde.
PM Modi, in reply, wrote: “Please convey my blessings to young Belaku. I pray for her happiness and good health.”
Belaku’s wish became a bit of a hit on social media as greetings poured in for the girl – including, apparently, from complete strangers. Some said “Belaku” means “light” in Kannada.
