Modi meets Ricky Kej


Prime Minister Narendra Modi met internationally acclaimed musician Ricky Kej on Monday and congratulated him on his win at the 57th Grammy Awards earlier this year. Kej had won the prestigious award for his 2014 album Winds of Samsara, which bagged the best new-age album trophy in Los Angeles in February. “PM Narendra Modi’s office had invited me for a meet and greet. I came in today morning. He was extremely gracious and generous with his time. We had a 45-minute-long, private meeting with the PM, my wife and me. He said it is not just an award for me, but also for the whole country. We talked music, philosophy and it was a really great time,” Kej said on the phone. Kej had composed a special version of the National Anthem for the Prime Minister.
