Modi has shown the right path to the nation through his Sadhbavana

September 18, 2011 at 4:16 am 14 comments

Modi’s fast has raised the hackles of the Opposition for reasons best know to it.A fast is a spiritual exercise-a response to an inner call-an impetus to spiritual growth-a powerful petition to the gods-a source of purification-a call to all to rise above pettiness and to look forward and upwards. ‘Sadbhavana’ of Modi had all this and more because as Chief Minister he needs also to set the tone and tenure in his State of peace and harmony. Gujarat has been praised globally and nationally for its progress. But as CM he knows that peace and harmony is the essence of development and progress and very much the need of the day in this country. So Modi did the right thing in setting the example for the nation.

Modi’s Sadbhavana had all the right ingredients-his motives were transparent and he articulated these at the start of his fast. There was not a word of anger, bitterness or hatred. But there was an underlying note of sadnessness on the falsehoods spread by others.Modi did not fail to showcase Gujarat as a model for development and wanted the State to contribute to national development. Thereby Modi did put an obligation on Gujarat to help the States to march forward. The CM was straight and transparent. He did not mince words on the ability and capability of Gujarat-on the hurdles it had faced but had come out with greater strength. One would think that the fast’s central goal was peace and harmony-that took the centre stage. It was not just in words but in the support showed by other communities especially the Muslims. Modi did state that 2002 was a tragedy .He reminded the nation and the world that the pain of those who suffered is his own. It should be because as a Chief Minister he must be one with all his subjects and one who got the mandate from the people is obliged to wipe every tear of the people in his State. On the whole, the Sadbhavana was well perceived and well planned. Those who came to witness and show their solidarity also presented a picture frame of religious unity. It was estimated that one fourth of the crowd were Muslims. On the whole Modi started his 61’s year with an spiritual input for inner growth which augers well combined with his political acumen. The idea of Sadbhavana was a response to his inner voice and he did well in his positive response to that inner voice.

Take the fast undertaken by the Congress-what was its motive. It looks that Modhawadia, Vaghela and Gohil degraded the fast as a spiritual exercise. Hen it started a counter fast at the Sabarmati Ashram. (The Congress has not moral and political right even to utter Gandhi’s name.)The Gujarat Congress created a forum to bash Modi –to hold on to the divisive culture of the Congress. Was there a word of communal harmony? Why pick at Modi when the Congress wants no harmony and peace but vote banks to be held within communal ghettos? One cannot fault Modi because it must be left to him and his conscience to do what he thought was the best. How can the Congress say that the talk of harmony did not suit Modi? How can it be so petty and talk of five star culture being used as an image building. Modi is in ‘Z’ security and as such needs all the bandobost and all that goes along with it.It seems petty, low and base because Modi does not need any image building. He stands tall among the Chief Ministers of this country and has been looked upon as a model administrator. This is God’s gift to him. The Congress’ fast looked childish, spiteful and full of jealousy. Can there be a fast on such a premise.-with such a mentality that spewed venom? Was this the inner voice of the Congress to go on a counter fast? To start one hour early and end two hours after Modi’s fast after having termed Modi’s fast a gimmick? Does it mean that the Congress wanted a longer gimmick by its own yardstick?
And Mallika Sarabhai’s eyes opened when Modi declared his Sadbhavana-she saw poor hungry children and was motivated to feed them. Thats one good result of Modi’s fast!.

The five star culture which the Congress talks of belongs to Mrs Sonia and her family. The private jets used, the grandeur in which she and her family wade through at the cost of the tax payers monies are very much the talk of the town. The black money stashed away –a result of the unholy nexus of the Congress and the looters and conmen cannot be wiped off.
The Congress would have done better if it sat on a fast for the victims of Bhopal gas-the conspiracy of the State government and the Centre government in allowing Warren Anderson to flee the country without facing justice. The Congress is guilty of a globally largest industrial disaster which left thousands maimed, crippled, diseased and dead How has it washed this guilt? The Delhi riots immediately after Indira Gandhi’s assassination in which the Congress men lead the massacre team to butcher the Sikhs –to rape the women and to burn down their dwelling is recorded history and not very long ago. How has the Congress washed this guilt? Today the Congress has the cheek to talk of Modi’s guilt when it carried such a huge load of guilt and genocide and massacre. Can any number of fasts as penance wash the guilt? Can the Congress come out of its own guilt? Never, but at least it could be humble and refrain from faulting others. No lessons it will ever learn because of its load of political and social sins

The Congress does not understand anything spiritual. It thinks that the inner voice only Mrs Sonia has one. Hence at the prompting of her inner voice she announced ‘renunciation’. And renunciation to Mrs Sonia and her coterie meant more power. So quietly she schemed and usurped sole proprietorship of power to govern India. Her unconstitutional and unethical method led to scams one after another-skeletons came tumbling down and more will come. So the Congress party can never digest anyone with a positive response to an ‘inner voice’ for peace and harmony. That’s the last the Congress wants. The Congress is digging its own grave and refuses to see the writing on the wall. The Congress lacks moral and political insights because it is warped in vested interest and one such is vote bank politics.

    TV anchor posed the same question to Narendra Modi whether it was not a 5 star fast.
    Nation’s premier news channel devoted an entire episode to ask how Baba Ramdev could travel in a private jet; It ought to be spartan living for him. Does Anna Hazare’s frugal living an example?
    How could it be? He accepted plane tickets from the govenment to travel to Delhi.
    Rarely you hear a voice without a bias.
    Political parties mostly field lawyers to state their points of view. When was the last time you saw a public-spirited lawyer who did not do a brief for the governement one way or other?
    ‘If you are fighting corruption why are you appearing for Kanimozhi?’ asked Rajdeep Sardesai.
    ‘That is the trouble with you. You ask irrelevant questions. That is why I don’t want to come to your show.’ This was Ram Jethamalani.
    Why did BJP saw it fit to elect him to Rajya Sabha?
    Remember his “ten questions” to Sonia Gandhi?

      Dear Dakul.
      No matter what Modi does or does not do he will be blamed by his critics.To go on a fast was his own decision-too much is read into it.Of course as one who stands tall among the CMs of India it is bound to be political and people -his supporters are rushing to be seen with him-to see him and to have a glimpse of him.I did not find anything wrong with his speeches and his letters to Gujarat.But then any stick is good enough to beat him-that’s the Congress.If Modi’s Sadbhvanana is a farce why does the Congress want another farce an imitation that too..The simple truth is that Modi is a success and the Congress is fighting hard to retain their vote bank of Muslims -what it wants is disunity and disharmony-towards this they go on a FARCE FAST- all the time spewing venom on Modi.
      Thank you Dakul for your response-it is always good hearing from you.

    Dear Madam,

    An excellent post. What you say is perfectly right. UPA is scared of NaMo. UPA are trying to create problems through its media stooges. The paid media is coming out with numerous and indecent talk shows. As it is said, whethey they hate or love NaMo, they can’t ignore him.

    • 4. Hilda Raja  |  September 19, 2011 at 10:57 am

      Dear Ram,
      It is only because Modi is strong and capable that the Congress is worried.Why should it otherwise go on a farce fast having called Modi’s a farce and a sham and a drama etc?They are merely exhibiting their instability and Modi phobia.
      Thank you for your comment.Have a good day

    Dear Madam,

    Thank you for your great articles. This is regarding your article dated October 26, 2009, titled “Prologue to the Nanavati Commission Report”. Some of your sentences in this article give an impression that UPA was in power at the time of Godhra riots. For example, “Had the media and the government taken timely action the Gujarat riots could have been contained, but as though pouring oil in the burning fire and rubbing salt into the wounded hearts the Centre and the media brought in an accident angle to the ghastly torching. Lalu Prasad the Minister for Railways was quick to grab the opportunity to consolidate his Muslim vote bank so too the Congress under Mrs Sonia Gandhi became the protector of the Muslims.” Another example, “It is not my intention to fault Vajpayee-then leader of the Opposition and the BJP in not countering the challenge and the injustice effectively. Even before they could gather their wits and their sagging strength the Gujarat riots hit the nation with the media flashing the gory and brutal revenging spree that found hundreds dead and injured-This time the death toll roll read were Muslims.” Can you please look into this? Thank you.

      Dear Vikram Chawla,
      I am not sure of what you seek from me.At that time in 2009 the UPA was in power at the Centre.Just before the elections Lalu who was then the Raliway minister called for a commission though one was in progress and in hardly a month’s time the commission report he flashed around saying that it was a close circuit-and or someone was cooking with the carriage so it caught fire.This to give the impression that the Godra carnage was an accident and no Muslims were involved.But later it was said that petrol was purchased and stored-that the train chain was pulled and it was made to stop at Godhra-rags dipped in petrol were flung into the carriage etc.Whatever may be the exact truth-with politicians wanting to take advantage one can only say this-that 59 innocent people were burned alive for no fault of theirs.Till date the UPA has not compensated nor shed a tear and expressed condemnation.My point is this-in every incident-nay ghastly episode when lives are snuffed out if it is the Hindus who are the unfortunate victims there is not condemnation-no Minister visits the bereaved families -but the moment Muslims are affected there is compensation-one after another ministers visit-the Congress spokespersons then talk of saffron terrorism-the PM cautions the police to handle with care and not to harass the innocent community.This is too obvious a bias against the Hindus.Unless this myopic-biased and jaundiced perception of the Congress is cleared no terrorism can be wiped out.It seems that justice is buried because of vote bank.The Muslims are one block since fatwas are issued.It is another matter that religion and politics cannot be mixed-but these seem to be a fantasy today.What is the Hindu seers also issue obligatory ‘fatwas’ to the Hindus whom to vote and whom not to vote..The christian churches also follow this ‘fatwa’ business in their own language.No political party objects and the EC silently watches.This is unfair.The rules of the game must be same.
      I do not know if I have satisfied your query.I have forgotten what I wrote in 2009.I do not keep a record of these.As and when I feel provoked and cannot quieten my conscience-I speak out for justice.That’s the least I can do for my country and my people.
      All the best to you.

    “Ambika Soni’s adventures in arm-twisting”
    Didn’t know it was so straight forward…

    • 9. Hilda Raja  |  September 21, 2011 at 3:15 am

      Dakul you must remember that Ambika Soni is a christian and she is good not only in arm twisting but in men twisting too.Remember she and Sanjay Gandhi?

  • 10. S.Ramkumar  |  September 20, 2011 at 10:22 am

    Thanks for clearing all the doubts in my mind about NaMo’s fast. I was also carried away by the media’s false propaganda. I feel that it;s right time BJP should start a tv channel of its own and a national newspaper to publish the true facts.

    Thanks a lot madam.


    • 11. Hilda Raja  |  September 21, 2011 at 3:06 am

      Thank you Ramkumar-noone has a copyright for fasting.Modi did what his inner voice prompted-best to leave at it instead of making an analysis of it-this is what his opponents are trying to do.Modi has his right to perform what he wants-call it a political stunt-so it be!
      All the best to you.

    Dear Madam,
    As usual,an excellent presentation,
    As expected shooting of arrows from the sides by Congress. thro’ merceneries has started. Godhra riots case got the services of Sanjiv Bhatt,and Sadhbavana has brought Mallika Sarabhai to do dirty jobs.
    It cannot be said Congress does not understand anything spiritual.You may call them shameless illiterates as they cannot read the writing on the wall They fully understand and follow their spiritual leader,Sonia Gandhi,excelling themselves as more loyal than the king..To expect them to be otherwise is like trying to straighten the Dog’s tail.

    • 13. Hilda Raja  |  September 21, 2011 at 3:13 am

      Dear Sivaram,I really liked your response because of the similes you used.Yes they are mercenaries.They and not the stuff that Modi is made.Modi’s patriotism is unmatched.He is prepared to do anything for the country.These Congress headed by a foreign woman do not understand what national patriotism is all about.They try to pick holes.Even Pakistan they would embrace-and is not considered an enemy to the country-but Modi yes-is the biggest enemy to them.What strange perception and logic.After all are we not one?In fact the HM is behind Sanjay Batt prodding him on and openly offered to provide all help.The latter along with Sarabhai the dancer are Congress stooges.Thank you for your response which was apt and sharp.

    i am not able to take sides as you do so much at ease…for me congress and bjp as political parties are two sides of the same coin. impact on people is worrisome. the nda govt did not deviate much from the congress policies although the bjp/nda criticised the congress policies. recently, arun jaitley during his vist to the america said he (bjp) has no opposition to the nuclear deal (although as opposition party pressed for vote of confidence motion).

    both the parties are fighting for power and the ethics are questionable.

    and i become suspicious when i see all praises for narendra modi…
