Who is Anisha Patil: When a ten-year-old girl dropped the Prime Minister of India an email expressing a wish to meet him, little would she have thought she would get a reply. More so, a reply asking her to “run up” and come to him.
That’s reportedly what happened when young Anisha Patil, the granddaughter of Maharashtra minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, reached out to Narendra Modi over email for an appointment. “Hello Sir, I am Anisha and I want to really come and meet you,” she wrote finding a free window on her father’s laptop, as per reports.
“Daud ke chali aao beta,” came the PM’s reply. “Run and come to meet me.”
A ten-minute meeting reportedly occurred on Wednesday between Anisha and Modi when the Patil family dropped in to the PM’s office.

Reports suggest it had long been Anisha’s wish to meet Modi in person and she often urged her father to arrange a meeting. Patil was aware of the PM’s packed schedules and told her as much. The young one decided to take matters into her own hands and navigated her way through to sending an email asking for an appointment with the PM.
And sure enough, her dream did true.
