    The words few weeks back said by NaMo that let "Americans would be standing in the line for getting an indian visa". It seem to be true, if NaMo be PM in 2014. I would request all progressive Indians to think about 2014

    As per news paper reports, The visiting American delegation has extended invitation to Modiji for visiting America and they would try to ensure the visa. Though they have invited, Modiji should not be keen to visit US at this juncture. There will be a day ahead, then the American Govt. will be ashamed to send an invitation (request?) to Mr.Modi for visiting US.
    This is what i WISHED Sri Modiji. When visa was denied i worte to Sri.Modiji that America should come to HIM and eagerly wait for his DARSHAN. Now that day is coming. Nobody can prevent HIM from ruling our HINDUSTAN as PRIME MINISTER. JAI HIND.

    If Modi becomes PM, USA cannot continue the stand-off with Modi. For then it will mean stand-off with India and that certainly is not American policy at the moment. Oldest Democracy and largest democracy cannot be against each other. If we today see these moves from US lawmakers, then we should know that the whole World is looking at Modi as India's next Leader.

    Charm which draws us with a single hair' o& HIS MERIT. Our Modiji reminds me of My fav.Poet, Alexander Pope whose immortal lines : "CHARMS STRIKE THE SIGHT BUT MERIT WINS THE SOUL". IN MODI'S CASE THERE IS MAJESTIC AFFABLE CHARM AS WELL AS Sparkling MERIT'. That's why he has a few equals In Indian Politics & his 2G : Good Governance MANTRA WORKS LIKE MAGIC. The Whole of 'India that is Bharat',except the neck-deep Congress Wallahs is waiting for the Day He Is Chosen to Adorn the P.M.'s CHAIR! MAY INDIA CHOOSE THE RIGHT PERSON!
