Lockdown made many of us gain weight as we all had little to no movement staying indoors. On the other hand, we also have fewer people who took this period as an opportunity window to get fit and healthy. Simultaneously, we have witnessed social media filling with the umpteenth number of cooking videos by trying new dishes at home.
However, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi seems to fall into that fewer people category who did not miss the gym and healthy eating even in lockdown. As we know, a few days ago, Rahul jumped into the sea in Kerala along with fisherman and the news were all over the internet. One particular picture from the incident had Rahul in a wet shirt, faintly showing the outline of his abs.
Soon after netizens praised the politician for staying fit and he is probably, one of the few fittest politicians we have in our country. The ace boxer, Vijender Singh, who won bronze and silver medals at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, also tweeted, “Abs of a boxer… Most daring young fit & people’s leader Way to go…”
Netizens were shocked to see the picture and lauded Mr Gandhi for his inspiring fitness. We also have Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is 68 years old and shows exemplary fitness levels among all the politicians in India. Nevertheless, it is good to see how our politicians are getting health-conscious besides working for the country.
