I love Mr Modi

Mr Narendra Modi has come a long way from the Gujarat of 2002.  The real war is a psychological one, he has learnt.  It is very easy to rouse up the rabble and set ablaze anything.  Rousing up people’s imagination is the tough job.  A real leader’s task is precisely that.  And that’s what Mr Modi did in Kerala yesterday.

Look at what he said in Kerala yesterday.  India will not forget Uri.  Mr Modi knows as well as Mark Antony that public memory is like the thistledown caught in the wind.  And Mr Modi is as good an orator as Mark Antony.  He knows how to win over hearts just like the Roman conqueror.  “When we think of Kerala, we think of God’s Own Country, it has an impression of purity and holiness,” he said to the cheering crowd.  “When I visited gulf countries recently, I wanted to meet my people from Kerala living there.” He knows that Kerala’s economy is sustained by the Malayalis working in those desert sands.  “Kerala ke karyartaon ko vishwas dilata hoon ki aapki tapasya, balidaan kabhi bekaar nahi jayga, kabhi na kabhi to rang layga.

Yes, balidaan, sacrifice, is the need of the hour.  Mr Modi knows that.  His party workers have to sacrifice a lot, their lives if need be, in Kerala which is ruled by the Left that is the worst enemy of the BJP.  Balidaan is required in the Indo-Pak border more than ever, more than anywhere.  People of India, listen to that.  And get ready for the war.  It is coming.  Slowly.  Mr Modi needs your support.  Without your support he won’t go to war.  He has historical ambitions.  He will be the Akbar of the 21st century.

And he knows the strategies.  It won’t be a simple war. It will be a war supported by a whole nation of 1.25 million people.  And more nations.  Mr Modi is garnering support from a lot many other countries too.  Yes, he is a great leader.  By the time Pakistan is eliminated Mr Modi will have earned his place in history. 

Who will be left to write the history is the question that will remain.

In the meanwhile, I am becoming a fan of Mr Modi.  He knows the game. 

Let me end this with another quote from Mr Modi’s speech in Kerala yesterday.  “A day will come when people of Pakistan will go against its own government to fight terrorism.”  He is right again.  That’s how Pakistan deserves to be decimated.  Not by India.  Mr Modi will earn his place in history if that goal is achieved.

Celebrities and me

If I am asked to invite some “celebrities” to a dinner at my dining table, who would those “celebrities” be?

At the outset, let me clarify that this is a purely hypothetical and fictitious approach to the latest theme proposed by Indispire.  

The first three names that come to my mind are Arnab Goswami, Narendra Modi and Gurinder Singh Dhillon.  The last may need an introduction.  Mr Dhillon is the godman who controls quite a few empires led by a cult named Radha Soami Satsang Beas.  He is arguably the richest Indian if the wealth possessed by his cult in India alone (let alone those abroad) is reckoned.  He is worshipped as a god by a few million people in the country though he shies away from publicity of the sort I am giving him free of charge.  He is a celebrity though the Indian media has not discovered him yet except in a rare report like this.

Mr Modi with his political acumen and Mr Dhillon with his godman skills can work out some divine miracles or at least some human strategies for solving India’s myriad problems including Pakistan and China. We have come a long way from Swatch Bharat and Black Money Back.  Now the focus is on the potential Third World War being concocted at the Indo-Pak borders.  I would love to know what the godman who owns the largest area of land in the country has to say about this war for territory.  And I would love to see Mr Goswami bending his ego like the reed in a storm and trying to shout “The nation wants to know...” 

Indispire wants me to invite five celebrities, the sixth one on the table being me supposedly.  So let me invite Dr Manmohan Singh.  He will give me company, I hope, to be a silent observer even when Mr Goswami will declare him the culprit of the latest Indo-Pak showdown.  I will be delighted to learn the value of silence from Dr Singh.

What about the fifth chair?  Well, let god occupy that.  God is the silent listener always.  Let him/her/it learn, if he/she/it has not learnt it already, the games his creatures play in his/her/its name.

PS. This post is written for Indispire Edition 136 #Celebritydinner
