Major victory of BJP in the recent elections prompted me to post my comments on articles in FE and BS. I also posted my opinions on YS of MI and on a new e-magazine RML. Following comments were posted with minor changes here and there:
I recall having read, long long ago, a translated version on “The Akbarnāma”, which literally translates to Book of Akbar, and is the official chronicle of the reign of Akbar, the third Mughal Emperor (1556–1605). It was said to be commissioned by Akbar himself and was compiled by his court historian and biographer, Abul Fazl who was one of the Nine Jewels in Akbar’s court. The book includes vivid and detailed descriptions of his life and times. Akbar has been hailed as The Great.
Now, with media reports on the life and times of Narendra Mody, I feel it is high time to compile and publish NaMo Nama or a book on him with full details so that the common man comes to know about his life and his rise from a low caste birth to the highest office of the country!
Newspapers have used interesting epithets to describe his victory. Words like Land-slide Victory, Clean-Sweep, It’s not a Wave but a Tsunami, Hurricane, Tornado, Bull-dozer, Historical, Modi-fied India, Blooming Lotus, Saffron Conqueror, Stealing the Thunder, Bulls Eye, Game Changer, Clean Bowled, Sweet Revenge etc indicate the enormous impact of the campaigns and strategies of Modi.
Many writers, several academicians, a few economists, some leading educationists, some well known marketing gurus, business leaders– all have hailed NaMo’s victory in their own languages and terms.
AmityUniversity is going to hold workshops on lessons learnt from 2014 General Elections. Special Sections in Business magazines have filled pages on features like Maturing of Brand Modi, Lessons Learnt from Modi’s Strategies, 10 Things We Can Learn From Modi etc. Some IIM / IIT Students have also given interviews to news-papers suggesting the areas Modi must focus on, to bring India to its path of glory. List of Dos have been suggested by Corporates. Industrial Houses want him to make doing business easier.
Let us ride on the wings of hope and prayers to see Modi’s new and resurgent India. Let us hope for improvement in our relations with neighboring countries and super powers like USA and China. Let us hope for proper harnessing of Youth Power. Let us hope for more employment opportunities. Let us hope for newer and better technologies to make our lives easier, safer and convenient. Let us hope the common man’s basic needs will be taken care of. Finally, let us hope NaMo delivers what he has promised!

Following is the comment from Supratik Sen, Hyderabad on my post in MUSE INDIA:
For a long time, I was against Modi because of a number of reasons. After his victory, and on going through, in detail, the election results, I have no doubt that he is the leader we’d been looking for. I cannot understand how Modi, despite what he’s gone through since about a decade, get a 26 on 26 in Gujarat! Even Pranoy Roy cannot convince me saying it was a ‘fear factor’ or a ‘rigging’… people across levels and religions have opted for BJP in Gujarat? The majority of this kind happened only in 1984, and we know why… ther were people refusing to accept a similar wave in the name of modi, but the results are here for us to see. Now it is time for him and his party to deliver.Thanks for sharing your thought Broca ji. Warm regards,
Supratik Sen, Hyderabad

Here is the edited version of my letter in FE of 22.05.14:
This refers to your lead story “Modisattva” (FE, May 17). Many of us would recall having read a translated version of the “Akbarnama”, which literally translates into Book of Akbar. It was said to be commissioned by Akbar himself and was compiled by his court historian and biographer, Abul Fazl, who was one of the Nine Jewels in Akbar’s court. The book includes vivid description of Akbar’s life and times. Akbar, had been called as “the Great” by world historians.Let’s hope Modi leads India in the same way Akbar the Great did.
Let’s hope for improvement in our relations with neighbouring countries. Let’s hope for proper harnessing of India’s youth power. Let’s hope the common man’s basic needs are properly taken care of. Let’s hope there is communal harmony in the country the same way it was said to be in Akbar’s reign. Then if someone compiles a book called NaMoNama, it would be an apt testimonial to Modi.
