At a time when social media is king, the number of followers and a blue tick next to your name on Twitter happens to be a huge deal. But imagine a man with neither of these happened to get a follow back from the person who is the most followed Indian on the micro-blogging site — Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Twitter user Akash Jain tweeted to the Prime Minister, attaching a picture of his sister’s wedding card along with it with the logo of Swachh Bharat campaign on it! As unusual as that sounds, Jain tweeted that his father insisted that the invites are printed with the logo on them. His tweet quickly caught the attention of a local MP Pratap Simha, who retweeted it.
