Book review of 'Modi Again: An Ex-Communist's Manifesto (2019) by Aabhas Maldhar
To greet Narendra Modi on becoming the Prime Minister again for leading India as independent, non-violent democracy with integrity and amity, I wish to place on record my understanding, analysis, interpretation of the book 'Modi Again: An Ex-Communist's Manifesto' as the real story of a young Marxist architect Aabhas Maldhar, who became a Modi supporter from a Modi hater.

I am thankful to Shri Subhash Chander Gupta of Shahabad Markanda  for sending the copy of the book who deserves to be recognised by the present leadership for his contributions in national building as a true Indian (RSS man) of convictions.

The forwarding letter of Subhash ji began with a quote from Rig Veda 'Let noble thoughts come to us from all sides of the world (cosmos)' motivated me to read the book of 188 pages developed in 20 chapters with rapt attention.  It is dedicated to everyone who was once a communist. The writer confessed with full conviction- yes, this has been a journey 'If you are not a communist at the age of twenty, you have not got a heart. If you are still a communist at the age of thirty, you have not got a brain'. All this happened to the writer who knew Modi only for bad reasons and did not vote for him in 2014 but promised to vote in 2019 elections. The statue of unity- the monumental sculpture 182 metres tall not only gives fame to India but gives the due respect to the tallest and strongest leader (Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel) India ever produced in modern times.

To lead the nation, let the Prime Minister concentrate on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 by using the wisdom of the professional economists like the reviewer who has been advocating spiritual economics for human development of India for inclusive growth with challenges of converting careless to careful and useless to useful human resources of India. We need to create a cadre of value based citizens by understanding, analysing, interpreting and adopting Bhagvad Gita and Anu Gita.

As a spiritual economist, I have very high hopes from the NDA Government in second Avatar which needs cooperation and support from all the stakeholders including opposition who have been given the mandate to monitor and evaluate the functioning of the Government with open eyes and ears. We need to become street SMART (simple, moral, action oriented, responsive and transparent ) Indians for contributing towards national building with commitment and convictions.

*The reviewer is Professor of Economics and   presently Vice Chancellor of Jaipur based Jagan Nath University.
