Narendra Modi: 16 things to know about the would be Prime Minister of 16th Lok Sabha Elections

narendra modi

Narendra Modi – Gujarat Chief Minister who became the face of Bharatiya Janata Party during the 16th Lok Sabha Elections is more than just a party leader. Modi has evolved as a brand and however his opponents may deny of the ‘Modi Wave’ deep down in their hearts they fully agree with the fact that it is not just Modi wave but a tsunami that is beating down the popularity charts. Narendra Modi – an able leader, a party face and supremo of Bharatiya Janata Party has always remained an object of interest among the people for his great personality and idealistic yet contemporary thoughts. We take a look at 16 things about Narendra Modi – a leader that eclipsed every other face in the politics during this 16th Lok Sabha Elections.

1. Narendra Damodardas Modi was born on 17th September, 1950 to Damodardas Mulchand Modi and his wife, Heeraben. He was third of six children. He was born in a family of grocers. As a child Narednra Modi helped his father at his tea-stall.

2. Narendra Modi always kept quite on the topic of his marriage. The BJP prime-ministerial candidate finally after remaining silent in the previous four campaigns acknowledged Jashodaben Chimanlal as his wife during filing the nomination form for the Lok Sabha Elections 2014. Narendra Modi had a child marriage with Jashodaben at the age of 13 according to the tradition of his family. But Modi never accepted this marriage as he was inclined towards RSS and decided to lead a bachelor life. And so did Jashodaben who also decided to live her life as single.

3. Narendra Modi was very patriotic since an early age of 15. He volunteered to serve the soldiers during Indo-Pak war of 1965. Narendra Modi had keen interest in lives of ascetics. He was highly interested in their lifestyle and he ran away from home and lived along with Sadhus and finally reached Himalayas where it is assumed he lived for two years.

4. Narendra Modi is said to have learnt the true meaning of hardship and determination during the time he spent the time selling teas along with his brother at State Transport Office in Ahmedabad.

5. Narendra Modi became the longest-serving Chief Minister in Gujarat’s history. Modi was in power for 2,063 days continuously when he resumed CM post in 2007. He took oath to become the Chief Minister of Gujarat for the first time in 2001. Currently he is serving his fourth consecutive term as Gujarat CM.

6. Narendra Modi during the phase of his sanyasi had just two pair of clothes but the likely Prime Mnister has been very particular about the way he looks in the public. He is very particular about wearing wrinkle-free and ironed dresses. He has favourite cloth store Jade Blue of Ahmedabad which he prefers for his dresses. Modi makes sure he looks in top shape when in public. This makes him different from the politicians and helps in building the brand Modi.

7. Narendra Modi might not have been provided with a visa in 2005 to US but the irony is Modi has done a three month course in public relations and image management in US. No wonder Modi knows how to strike chord with his audience. He has been charismatic throughout his rallies and has generated the much required boost Bharatiya Janata Party needed this Lok Sabha Elections 2014.

8. Narendra Modi has a brilliant sense of humour. The opposition may find it questionable but nobody can deny there is a tinge of witty one-liners which has the audience in splits. He is outspoken and be it during the rallies or giving interviews, Narendra Modi has been the man of this political season.

9. Narendra Modi fasts all nine days during Navratra every year. He has only one fruit a day during this time. Modi has built a Rs 70 crore-plus Shaktipeeth parikrama on the Gabbar hillock.

10. Narendra Modi may come across as conservative personality but is an enthusiast when it comes to technology. He does not miss to check news about himself everyday on internet. He is also very fond of latest collection of watches.

11. Narendra Modi sleeps only four hours. He is a workaholic. He reports to his office around 7 in the morning and works as late as 10 or even late in the night. He likes to keep a tab on every change and makes sure to keep all the clippings of what his opposition or critics have to say about him.

12. Narendra Modi who is well known for his particularity about the way he looks is very popular among the females. He is the second most followed Indian politician on Twitter after Shashi Tharoor.

13. Narendra Modi’s hobbies are photography and poetry. He loves writing and he is major contributor during his rallies speeches. Narendra Modi also held an exhibition of photographs clicked by him.

14. Narendra Modi is vegetarian and likes Gujarati snacks like Bhakhri. He is also said to be a loner and an introvert. He is said to have no best friends but just a personal staff of three persons.

15. Narendra Modi appeared on the cover Time magazine’s Asian edition. It is one of the very few politicians to grace the cover of the prestigious magazine. He also featured in Time’s 2014 Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

16. Narendra Modi idolizes Swami Vivekanand and Indira Gandhi.

NaMO

Narendra Modi is likely to be the next Prime Minister of India as the results discloses within few hours. There is no doubt that Modi emerged as the biggest leader in the Lok Sabha Elections 2014. The cliche line of ‘ Love me or Hate me but you cannot ignore me’ fits perfectly to Narendra Modi. One of the fiercest leaders to be seen in the present age is – Narendra Modi.

    NOT THE VOTERS, CIA DETERMINES WHO GETS HOW MANY VOTES, USING MICROWAVE SIGNALS FROM SATELLITES

    A couple days ago I posted a comment on outlookindiaDOTcom. A couple hours later I found that there were 4 ‘Dislikes’ on my comment and 0 ‘Likes’. A few minutes later, I found that the number of ‘Dislikes’ had been reduced from 4 to 3; the number of ‘Likes’ was still 0. CIA-RAW, which has kept me under 24-hour surveillance with the U.S. National Security Agency satellites for the past 37 years (see below) had done this with microwave signals from satellites; ordinary users can INCREASE the number of ‘Dislikes’ by pressing the ‘Dislike’ button but there is no way they can DECREASE the number of ‘Dislikes’. CIA-RAW routinely controls the number of hit-counts on my blogs, to take another example and can and does put false numbers, usually a small fraction of the actual number, in the hit counters. Note that falsification of vote counts in Electronic Voting Machines does not require the machines to be defective or physically tampered with; it is done electronically via microwave signals from satellites which leave no trace. CIA-RAW can do a lot more than change vote counts with microwave signals from satellites; they can alter the contents of any webpage at will but they can do a lot more than that also; just as microwaves make cell phones do whatever they do, CIA-RAW can use microwave signals from the U.S. National Security Agency satellites to make any digital equipment do whatever it wants; see IndianAirForcePilotsMurderDOTblogspotDOTcom .

    On August 9, 2008, CIA Director Michael Hayden and K. Subrahmanyam came on line and offered to transfer one crore rupees into my bank account within 48 hours if I agreed to cooperate with them. This was coupled with various kinds of threats and abuse. Several dozen of the most abusive comments were deleted by them before I saved the comments on my computer but the offer to transfer one crore rupees into my bank account can be seen at ‘Offer to me by CIA Director and K. Subrahmanyam’ : HaydenSubrahmanyamDOTblogspotDOTcom

    The opinions and votes of India’s slave population suffering from mass-psychosis (below) do not matter; only nuclear weapons matter — to simultaneously destroy Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. In a letter dated July 27, 1982 to Indira Gandhi as prime minister I referred to an act, by American Jews, that was “the equivalent of an annihilatory nuclear first strike on India”. In her reply dated July 29, 1982 she wrote “Dear Mr. Chandra, I have received your letter dated July 27, 1982 and am passing it on to my Principal Secretary to deal with it. Sincerely, Indira Gandhi”. In December, 1982 I wrote to her “There was sudden, terminal, overwhelming violence against me during a seminar at Harvard University and rather similar occurrences earlier… India can expect sudden, annihilatory violence … with nuclear weapons … against its population … unless it can mount a decisively superior force to stop it”. Following my advice, India’s strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme and the Centre for Advanced Technology, was started to give India victory in a nuclear war with the United States and because of my influence on her, Indira Gandhi as prime minister was assassinated by CIA-RAW and later when Rajiv Gandhi realized the truth of what I had written to her after the American invasion of Iraq which was the first Gulf War, he was also assassinated by CIA-RAW. In the past few years, I have had India’s nuclear forces emplace nuclear warheads in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities and India is now in a position to destroy the United States without being destroyed. In fact, India is in a position now to destroy the United States without itself suffering a single casualty by triggering its nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation.

    This is what I said when asked if India is just a pawn. “Yes, it is a pawn, a slave, a society suffering from mass-psychosis. Despite the recent revelations about M. K. Gandhi being a homosexual who reveled in his “slavery with a vengeance” to the white man, who engaged in a fake ‘freedom struggle” with the British managed by the Intelligence Bureau, the entire Indian government went to his memorial on his death anniversary this January 30, 2012 to pay tribute. India is a very sick society. (I had urged that all his portraits in government offices, etc. be burned). … By saying that India is suffering from mass-psychosis, I am being generous and kind of giving it the excuse of being ill (of the several hats I wear, I am also a mental health professional) but a country of 1.2 billion people being so terrified of much smaller numbers of people from half way around the world cannot really be excused. … ” (see RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom ).

    It is a matter of deep concern that almost all, if not all, senior officers of the Indian army have been ‘educated’ in United States defence establishments which allows their loyalties to be compromised. In the case of Dalbir Singh Suhag there is an additional factor. I have said Sikhs are traitors to India and played a major role in the British killing over 10 million Indians in just the ten years after 1857 — their primary loyalty is to the Anglo-Americans, not India: ‘Source of Manmohan Singh‘s ‘Deep Love‘ for Bush‘ : SourceOfManmohanSinghsDeepLoveForBushDOTblogspotDOTcom — and that is why no Sikh was made army chief until recently when J. J. Singh and Bikram Singh — who just returned after getting a military medal from the Americans without getting the requisite permission from the Indian government — were made army chiefs in quick succession thanks to a Sikh traitor as prime minister given this post by a white Christian woman and now another Sikh, Dalbir Singh Suhag, is due to be made army chief; the head of India’s nuclear forces is already a Sikh. The Defence Minister is a Christian as was his predecessor and the previous head of India’s nuclear forces was a Christian — all of them by definition loyal to the Anglo-Americans. Overt colonial rule over India is almost complete; Indians are too stupid and lethargic to do anything about it. My concern here is not religion (Sikhism is a branch of Hinduism like Buddhism and Jainism) but national security because of their being loyal to foreign enemies (possibly because both Sikhs and Christians are low-caste Hindu converts). This is also the reason India’s nuclear forces have so far failed to obey me to trigger India’s nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation, which will immediately make India the supreme military and economic power in the world.

    24 hours to
    NaMo

    In another 24 hours , exit polls will become obsolete when
    election results start pouring in

    And as the sun rises in the sky on 16th May , usual games
    will play-out on TV channels

    * CLAIM
    GAME

    In this game , the
    main players will be the leaders of BJP and its pre-poll allies

    All of these leaders will claim personal credit for BJP’s
    victory – without appearing to offend the Great NaMo !

    They will tell the TV anchors :

    There never was any doubt that we will win

    We had told you so , all along

    NaMo wave was unstoppable

    People were fed up of UPA’s failures

    This is the beginning of the end of the Dynasty Rule

    We will not be vindictive ( – except in case of RSVP ! )

    We gracefully accept the mandate given to us by people to
    bring in Good Governance

    People want Gujarat Model replicated all over India and we
    will do it

    * BLAME
    GAME

    This game will be
    played by leaders of Congress and its UPA allies

    They will try to hide their faces on TV channels ( – now I
    understand why police cover up the faces of alleged culprits ! )

    But if caught unaware by those intrepid roving journalists /
    cameramen , they will mumble in inaudible voices :

    We humbly accept the verdict of the people

    We honour their wishes ( though much against our wishes ! )

    We will play the role of a responsible opposition ( – but
    make no mistakes , at every small opportunity , we promise to disrupt the
    working of the Lok Sabha , better than what BJP ever managed )

    RSVP had nothing to do with our defeat

    Our Working Committee / Parliamentary Board will examine the
    reasons why people dumped us ( – and find some scapegoats ! )

    After all , we have been playing this game for over 65 years
    and know too well that you cannot fool all the people all the time !

    You win some , you lose some

    We will emerge stronger by 2019 ”

    * AIM GAME

    This game will be
    played out by the Third Front political leaders whose only ” Aim ”
    was to remain ” Relevant ” in the Lok Sabha !

    These leaders will be saying
    :

    As a Third ( rate ? ) Front , we have emerged stronger

    So what , if we cannot form the Government ?

    We cannot even agree on who is our Prime Ministerial
    candidate !

    But can’t you see that we are M-powered ? ( Maya / Mamta / Mulayam ) – with 3
    potential PMs ?

    As always , we will continue to provide NaMo , our ”
    Issue – based ” support ( – the
    only issues being , withdrawal of all
    scam-related cases / disproportionate assts cases / CBI investigations,

    etc , against our Behenji / Didiji / Netaji )

    And of course , grant of ” Special Status ” to
    W.Bengal / Bihar / UP / Tamil Nadu / Odisha / Seemandhra etc

    On 16th , switch on your TVs to witness the ” Grand Finale ”
    !

  • benrand

    Modi does not idolize Indira Gandhi. He risked his life helping people targeted by Indira Gandhi’s government during the dark days of the Emergency. So he has a healthy respect for democracy and not so much for dictator Indira.
