Not learning Tamil is one of the major shortcomings in his life, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on February 28.

During his Mann Ki Baat radio address, he described the southern Indian language as beautiful and one amongst the oldest in the world.

Modi told the listeners that he was asked few days ago by a Hyderabad-based resident about the major shortcomings of his life. After pondering over the question, Modi said, he realised that he regretted not learning Tamil.

"I told myself that one of my shortcomings was that I could not make much effort to learn Tamil, the oldest language in the world," he said.
