TIMES HAVE CHANGED FOR GOOD IN THE INDIAN “COOLIE” COLONY.
FIRSTLY, PEOPLE ARE LEARNING ABOUT THE PERSONAL LIFE OF THE NEW PRIME MINISTER. THERE WAS NO SUCH TRADITION EARLIER.
NONE KNEW THE MIND OF POLITICAL "WITCH" MAIMOONA BEGUM WHO, INSTEAD OF RAISING THE DEMOLISHED TEMPLE IN AYODHYA, ATTACKED THE HOLY SHRINE, SRI HARIMANDIR SAHIB, IN AMRITSAR ON A HISTORIC DAY IN ORDER TO MAXIMISE CASUALTIES AND TERROR. THIS FEMALE TERRORIST & MURDERER OF INNOCENT PEOPLE (STILL CALLED "INDIRA GANDHI", NOT MAIMOONA BEGUM) THEN PAID WITH HER OWN LIFE AS DIVINE RETRIBUTION ON HALLOWEEN DAY IN 1984. IN MEDIEVAL EUROPE THEY USED TO DROWN THE SO-CALLED “WITCHES” ON OCTOBER 31 EVERY YEAR.
NONE KNEW THAT SHE HAD MARRIED A MUSLIM AND, DUMPING HER NATIVE HINDU RELIGION, HAD CONVERTED TO ISLAM AND ACQUIRED THE NAME “MAIMOONA BEGUM”. THE HINDUS BELIEVED SHE WAS ONE OF THEM WHILE SHE HAD BECOME THEIR SWORN ENEMY.
INDIAN "COOLIE" MEDIA AND REPORTERS DO NOT GO INTO SUCH DIRTY DETAILS ABOUT THEIR RULERS, A TRADITION STARTED IN 1192 AD WHEN THE TURKS CAPTURED DELHI AND CRUSHED HINDU MANHOOD.
THE OTHER EXAMPLE WAS THE IGNORANCE ABOUT JAWAHARLAL NEHRU HIMSELF WHO WAS CONSIDERED A PATRIOT TILL HE ACCEPTED THE SURRENDER OF ONE THIRD OF HINDUSTHAN WHERE HIS OWN LOYAL HINDU FOLLOWERS WERE EXTERMINATED. HE DID NOT WARN PAKISTAN AGAINST THAT GENOCIDE NOR ACTED TO THROW OUT THE INDIAN MUSLIMS TO THEIR NEW HOMELAND (PAKISTAN).
SEEING THE NUMBER OF SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES NAMED AFTER THAT TRAITOR ALL OVER PARTITIOEND INDIA, ONE CAN BE SURE THAT SLAVERY & BLIND OBEDIENCE IS STILL IN HINDU GENES.
THERE IS HARDLY EVER A MENTION OF RAHUL'S LONG STANDING GIRL FRIEND IN VENEZUELA OR COLUMBIA. NO JOURNALIST TRIES TO FIND OUT SHO SHE IS, AND WHAT SHE IS DOING? HE IS SAID TO BE WAITING TO BECOME THE PRIME MINISTER WHEN SHE WILL PROMPTLY ARRIVE IN BHARAT AS ANOTHER UNCROWNED QUEEN OF THEIR HINDU SLAVES WHERE THE NATIVES DON'T PRY INTO RULERS' LIVES.
HOW NICE TO SEE THE FOLLOWING NARRATIVE ABOUT NARENDRA MODI, THE CURREND PRIME MINISTER, WHO HAS NOTHING TO HIDE FROM HIS PEOPLE ALTHOUGH LIVING IN THE WORLD OF DECEPTION, FRAUD AND HIGH TREASON.
"So Narendra Modi has finally gate-crashed New Delhi. The state-level political leader from a medium-sized Indian state has arrived in Delhi seeking the prime minister’s chair, no less.
While the country will take its time to make up its mind, Modi has shown that he is a man in a hurry and will not leave any stone unturned to achieve his dream.
So who really is Narendra Modi? Do we really know him? What are his personal habits, for one?
Sheela Bhatt compiles a list of things, both unknown and known, about the latest challenger to the New Delhi throne. These highlights from Modi's life should be read along with our two-part series:-
How Modi poses a threat as well as opportunity for Cong Polarisation or development? Narendra Modi's big dilemma.
1. Vadnagar, an ancient city that’s almost 2,500 years old, is Narendra Damordas Mulchand Modi’s birthplace. Indians strongly identify themselves with their janambhoomi, and Modi is no different. He likes the Hatkeswar Mahadeo temple, built in the 15th century, in his village. His birthplace is unique in that it saw both Hinduism and Buddhism flourish. It is also a highly cultured town that is famous for singer-duo Tana and Riri who stumped none other than the legendary Tansen in the Mughal king Akbar’s durbar.
Vadnagar was once the capital of Gujarat and has a proud place in history also because the Chinese scholar Hsüan-tsang visited it during his 17-year journey through India in the seventh century and has narrated Vadnagar in detail in his fascinating memoirs.
2. Modi was born on September 17, 1950. He makes it a point to take the blessings of his mother Heeraben on his birthday. He bonds reasonably well with his four brothers and sister but doesn’t display it in public. His wife's name is Jashoda, and the couple separated soon after marriage.
3. The most striking personal habit of Modi is to wear well-ironed and wrinkle-free clothes, a habit he retains from his teenage years when he would fill hot water in a brass lota and iron his shirt using the vessel’s heated bottom. He continues to lay stress on dressing well and, judging by his public appearances over the last couple of years, he owns hundreds of kurtas, all of them tailored by his favourite darzi in a posh shop on Ahmedabad’s CG Road. Everyone knows that he is crazy about wrist watches and sandals.
4. Modi is a cleanliness maniac. He keeps his desk, his home and general surroundings spic and span. There is no doubt that he is very comfort-oriented in the matter of designing his home and personal desk. He loves his chartered flights, too -- one of the privileges of being a chief minister.
5. He can be dubbed one of the best copywriters in contemporary India. No Indian advertising agency is likely to match his ability to paraphrase ideas, launch new brands, re-launch people and events, write-rewrite copies to sell ideas or products as he does. He truly is a great innovator.
6. In closed-door meetings, he likes multi-media presentations. He has a flair for technology, and has a child-like enthusiasm for it. In meetings, he has displayed that he has a fine sense of humour - though it can sometimes be unwittingly hurtful.
7. He is extremely prudent in money matters, and would like to pay the least and get the most while finalising contracts of various ministries. He can be called economical if not a miser. Yes, he is very economical with his own money as well.
8. These days, his weight veers around 84 kg. He gets back-pain at times, with the upper part of the spinal region being the problem area. When he stands for a long time, his feet get swollen. But, no, he doesn’t have any serious health problems.
9. He has spent enough time in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. So his language, nuances of behaviour and expressions can never be westernised. He definitely likes western watches, accessories and homely comforts, but that's all. He is quite conservative, even old-fashioned, on issues relating to women and family, though he will never say so in public. His knowledge of English is reasonably okay, but he is not comfortable speaking it. He has done his masters in political science, but as an RSS pracharak he learnt all
about India, Hinduism and family life when he was staying with RSS followers’ families.
10. Those who believe in astrology may like to know that Modi’s moon sign is Scorpio, and sun sign is Virgo. His star constellation is Anuradha. He was born at 11 am on September 17, 1950. An astrologer who saw his kundli says his rahu antardasha, considered good for those in politics, “is on till September 2014”. Ahmedabad’s best astrologer claims, “Modi’s planetary strength lies in Tula, no mangal in chalit, and Rahu in sixth house.
Those in the know say that Lokmanya Tilak and Otto von Bismark had similar kundlis. According to current astrological transit, Saturn and Rahu in Tula and Jupiter’s position in his kundli are helping his rise. One perforce thinks of destiny and X factor while talking about Modi because even as his government is facing serious allegations of fake encounters, his star is on the ascendence. The man's rise is impressive when one considers that for almost three decades he lived with little money. When in his 20s, he arranged and acted in a play in Vadnagar to collect funds to build his school’s boundary wall. He has even served tea in his maternal uncle’s canteen at the bus stand in Ahmedabad while studying in college.
11. He fasts all nine days during Navratra every year – eating only one fruit a day during this time. He eschews the Navratra-special thali-meal, which is traditionally allowed once a day. He fasts out of devotion for Goddess Ambaji, and has changed the landscape of her shrine on the Gujarat-Rajasthan border. Out of reverence to Ma Amba, he has built a Rs 70 crore-plus Shaktipeeth parikrama on the Gabbar hillock, considered highly sacred by devotees. This will be inaugurated soon.
12. He logs on to the internet every morning without fail and checks all that is written about him. Even if he is travelling, he gets newspapers and cuttings of what his critics are saying about him.
13. He is a decision-maker. He will not send any decision to a Group of Ministers.
14. Modi has no ‘best friend’. He is a loner.
15. Modi is married, but never lived with his wife. Since long, he has been trusting Anandiben Patel, a minister and among his likely successors if he shifts to Delhi. However, he guards his privacy zealously.
16. Modi is a workaholic. After going online at 7 am or even earlier, he would call his party men from all over Gujarat; now, he calls people from all over India. He attends office early in the morning, and works till 10 pm if need be. He is a leader who is not going to ease his grip on party politics even if he were to head a ministry or be ensconced in the PMO if a National Democratic Alliance government comes to power.
17. Oh yes, he is in love with the mirror. He poses like a model. He is very conscious of pictures that are sent out from his publicity office. A few years back he used to like dark colours but now he experiments. He keeps a comb handy in his pocket all the time. He keeps half a dozen colourful ‘khes’ angvastras ready in the back seat of his car, and chooses one according to the crowd he is addressing.
18. He sleeps for only five hours -- sometimes even less. Whatever time he hits the bed, he gets up at 5 or 5.30 am.
19. He has written poems of low literary value.
20. His icon is Swami Vivekanand. He admires Indira Gandhi.
21. Modi was incommunicado when he was 17 and 18. He left his family and went to Rajkot’s Ramakrishna mission and to the Belur Mutt in Karnataka and then to the Himalayas. He wanted to do something but did not know what. So he travelled and wandered around India.
22. His favourite food is bhakhri (crispy rotis) and khichdi made in Gujarati style. Modi knows to cook, too.
23.He has met innumerable sadhus. He taught Gujarati to Sadhvi Ritambhara when he was a full-time worker in the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. The sadhvi’s guru Swami Parmanand was fond of Modi’s ‘spiritual quest’.
24. Unlike his image, Modi meets local Gujarati Muslims frequently. But the easy access given to them is among Gandhinagar’s well-kept secrets.
25. He is a hard task-master and treats government officers as tools to achieve his political goals.
26. He has an excellent memory. Is very intelligent. A very good swimmer. Vegetarian. Possibly first ever vegetarian PM . Practices yoga and meditation. Keeps his vocal chords in tune with pranayama. He has good voice. Women love his voice which has a resonance. Under his rule, Muslims in Gujarat are far better off than in any states of India or for that matter, Pakistan or Bangladesh.
27. He can speak many languages including Bangali.
28. Besides clothes, he loves designer spectacle frames, esp. rimless and semi rimless frames.
29. He is passionate to bring India develop in all fields.
