A Hindu Nationalist
Narendra Modi is a Hindu and he is a nationalist. He is proud of his heritage and endeavours to carry the message of Maryada Purshottam Shri Ram and Yogeshwar Shri Krishna to man in the street so that the Nation is strengthened. He is a firm believer in the dictum: empower the weak to make the Nation strong. Empower the women to make the new generation patriotic.
Indeed the lessons that the tiny tots learn in the kindergarten or primary schools have to be soaked in the Indian nationalism and not draw parallels from Rome or Greece. India has many examples of brave hearts who sacrificed their lives to defend the country called Bharat. The tiny tots, the children in secondary schools and adolescents in secondary schools should be taught history of their ancestors like Maharana Pratap, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Guru Govind Singh Ji so that they emulate them and become true nationalists ever ready to make an Aahuti of their lives at the Yajna of freedom of Motherland.
Modi was brought up in the tradition of a Hindu Nationalist and has lived up to the ideals preached and practiced by numerous Sar Sanghchalaks right from Hedgewar ji, Guru Golwalkar ji to the present day Mohan Bhagwat ji. Narendra bhai is proud of the legacy of Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Ji, an eminent ideologue of the out and out a Nationalist organization named Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh, and proposes to celebrate his birth anniversary in style.
Kashi is the Lifeline
Modi made it a point to contest the Lok Sabha election from Varanasi
too besides from his home state seat of Vadodara. His sense of
inclusiveness draws admiration from one and all. Among his proposers
were - a
Chaiwala, the Rajmata of the House of Gaikwad, former ruling dynasty
of the place and two more.
Thus the highest of the high in the social hierarchy and lowest of the low; a tea vendor, made a social fusion that uplifted the heretofore divided Hindu Samaj that became a unbreachable citadel. The architect of this social engineering is none other than Narendra Mod. The Bhartiya Janata Party reaped the unprecedented harvest and romped home with 335 members in the Lok Sabha.
The Kashi campaign gave an unprecedented boost to the All India image of Narendra Modi. He held roadshows in Kashi although he could not address the huge audiences because the Election Commission of India stopped him from doing so. him to speak at public rallies. At a later date, he was not permitted to canvass in the constituency of Varanasi from where he was a candidate. It was a moribund decision made by the Chief Election Commissioner, apparently under pressure of those who had uplifted him from an anonymous post to one under national glare. Was he repaying his old masters? It is hard to tell.
Narendra Modi took these acts of injustice in his normal stride and came out of the electoral battle with flying colours. Modi won despite all the road barriers and speed breakers put before him by both the Congress led government at the Centre and the Samajwadi government of Uttar Pradesh. Both of these parties were punished by the people of India at the hustings. Their leaders do not know where to hide; in the lap of Ram or Rome.
The Bhartiya Rashtra cheered him then and cheers him now. He is the Bharat Hriday Samrat now and chaiwala to big business magnates love Modi alike. Where ever he goes, be it Rashtrapati Bhawan or a road corner meet, the public chant goes up Modi Modi Modi.
Prime Minister Modi
Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi. The forecourt is full of people of all shades, hues and opinions. There are Heads of States or Governments from the seven SAARC countries, there are Sadhus, Sanyasis, Mathadheesh of the Hindu religious order, common men and women from all parts of the country professing different faiths, Military Chiefsand what have you.
Narendra Modi arrives in style and is received warmly. His proposed team of 44 ministers are seated in a pecking order awaiting arrival of the Rashtrapati, Shri Pranab Mukherjee.
The fanfare is sounded. Comes the Rashtrapati in a procession escorted by his Military Secretary, ADCs and stands near the main table on the stairs leading to the Durbar Hall. Marches us the Secretary to the Rashtrapati and seeks his permission to commence the oath taking ceremony of the new Pradhan Mantri and his Council of Ministers, both of Cabinet rank and the Ministers of State. The ceremony goes on with clockwork precision. All 45 members of the Narendra Modi cabinet take oath and swear by God or Ishwar depending on the language used - Hindi or English.
The Bhartiya Rashtra wishes the new Prime Minister a roaring success in running the country’s administration and keeping his promises made to the people of the country. Well, Narendra Modi has started taking steps in the right direction by naming a Ministry for Ganga so that the holy river is cleaned as Modi had done to Sabarmati in Gujarat.
Now Narendra Modi belongs to the entire nation and we are sure that he would come out with flying colours in running the administration of Bharat as he did to win thew election with a thumping majority.
