Modi takes Japan by surprise, plays traditional drums
Tokyo, Sept 2: Prime Minister Narendra Modi continued to charm Japan on Tuesday when he turned into a drummer !

The Indian PM took everyone by surprise when he played a traditional Taiko drum enthusiastically at the launch of Tata Consultancy Services's Technology and Cultural Academy.

Last day, Modi signed a number of deals with Japanese PM Shinzo Abe.

It was TCS CEO N Chandrasekaran who invited Modi to try his hand at playing the traditional drums after the professional drummers had finished. The Indian PM didn't disappoint anyone - He played the drums with ease, at a fast beat.

Modi had a few words of advice for the TCS trainees - "You will learn as much outside your rooms as you will learn inside them."


"If you stay in India do not remain in TCS rooms daily. Take time out and travel across India," said Modi, according to a PMO tweet.

It is known that later today, Modi will visit Japanese Emperor Akihito and deliver the keynote address at a business seminar.
