Aaj Ka Arjun: Narendra Modi

At a conference on Bus Rapid Transit System, which was attended by management experts from Africa, Latin America and other parts of Asia, Bhai Narendra Modi said the following:
“Gujarat succeeds where Delhi fails.”

I have seen the system, which was under construction in Amdavaad, and I can tell you one thing: it will be fantastic! In fact it almost seems that Modi is so impatient in putting his vision in place that the state seems to be left breathless while trying to catch up to it.

Our readers know that we are unabashed admirers of Modi. All you have to do is type his name in the search bar and read all that we have written. This post is not about his vision or achievements. This is about wishing him well on his journey.

Bhai Narendra Modi has begun his campaign in Gujarat. We all hope and pray that this “yatra” ends in New Delhi with him taking oath for the highest office in the land. He is not campaigning for his post in Gujarat. He is fighting for the soul of Mother India. These are the darkest days since Indira Gandhi robbed us of the one thing we were proud of – our democracy. UPA 1 and 2 have raped and plundered the country. Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev stand defeated in front of this criminally corrupt and Goebbelsian regime. The nation is hopelessly divided and the marauders united. Abject Kalyug is what it is. One is reminded of the following from the Bhagwat Geeta:

“Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya
Glanirva Bhavathi Bharatha,
Abhyuthanam Adharmaysya
Tadatmanam Srijami Aham’.
Bhagavad Gita (Chapter IV-7)

(“Whenever there is decay
of righteousness O! Bharatha
And a rise of unrighteousness
then I manifest Myself!”)

Of course it too much to expect Lord Krishna to grace us with his presence but may he can bless the modern day Arjun with his wisdom and strength. Comparing Modi with Arjun is a reach but he is the one politician who comes closest to being a “Dharm-Yoddha”. And now that he has undertaken this arduous journey towards salvation of the country, I can only pray and hope that the aam aadmi will do the same. I hope that the ‘aahvaan’ raised by Bhai Narendra will have the same impact on his enemies as did Arjun’s as described below:

Picking up his conch, the golden Devadatta, Arjun blew on it fiercely; the heavens echoed with the noise, and the chariot warriors stood petrified on the field. Their horses stood paralysed, with eyes wide open ...
-Mahabharata, Book Seven: Drona

We may be at the advent of a turning point in our history. Bhai Narendra needs help of the voters and supporters. We need to do the best we can to ensure a resounding victory for him in Gujarat and beyond. We should resist temptations of free laptops and other meaningless crap. We should inform ourselves of the truth and achieve freedom from the falsehoods perpetuated by the Congress and its “daanav sena”. This is the time to put aside petty differences and come together for the betterment of our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and most importantly, our country. May all the gods bless Bhai Narendra.

As the slogan goes: “Modi Tum Sangharsh Karo. Hum tumhare saath hain”

  1. First BJP leaders should make him party president this year. Presently BJP is very weak party. It is not capable to fight with the Congress. The media in India damaging BJP badly. Also the party is sufferer of internal conflicts. The party need a strong leader whom ever body will listen. Now many people are talking about Modi as PM candidate of 2014. But that could be possible only if the BJP is getting majority in the lower house. Presently the nation need him as Party President not as PM candidate of 2014. Please recall what happened in 2009.
