"Top 5 Speeches of Shri Narendra Modi to the Indian diaspora"

The Indian diaspora is one of the most globalized communities in the entire world. Go to any corner of the world and you would see a person belonging to India. Over the years, the Indian diaspora has integrated into the nations they have settled in and at the same time kept a strong bond with India. Shri Narendra Modi has emerged as the most popular leader among the Indian diaspora, who view him as a leader who can take India to great heights and restore its glory as the leader of the world.

Here are 5 must watch speeches of Shri Narendra Modi interacting with the Indian diaspora:

(1)  Shri Narendra Modi’s address at the Annual National Convention of Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP) – 22nd September 2013

“Elections are not about any person or post but they are about dreams of the people, to wipe the tears of the poor and to work for the welfare of our farmers, the marginalized and tribal communities.”

“Individuals may come and go, it is the Nation that is eternal and said that everybody must work for the nation.”

“Parties took decades to win power but BJP got the opportunity to serve the people in years of its formation. To win the trust of the people is not a small thing and the BJP won the people’s trust due to their Karyakartas.”



(2)  Shri Modi addressing Indian diaspora from all across the world during Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2013 held in Kochi, Kerala- 9th January 2013

“If we have to move ahead in the 21st century development is the only way ahead. It is not about how much money you have but to do something better than before.”

“I have already requested that the 2015 Pravasi Bharatiya meet be held in Gujarat. This is because the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is linked to Gandhi ji’s arrival from South Africa and 2015 marks the centenary of Gandhi ji’s arrival to India from South Africa.”

“India is the world’s most youthful nation. A nation with such youth power cannot dream small. We cannot commit this crime. We should dream big, we should enable the youth to dream big and we should give them an opportunity to realize their dreams. For that, if rules need to be altered, if priorities need to be changed then so be it.”



(3)  Narendra Modi’s address to NRIs across 20 cities of USA to commemorate 53rd Gujarat Day celebrations- 13th May 2013

“Credit for the success of Gujarat does not go to an individual but the collective efforts of the 6 crore people of Gujarat.”

“Gujaratis are a global community. Gujaratis have always taken people together. Staying outside India, you have not let Gujarat or India get a bad name. In the true sense you are our cultural ambassadors and this has given strength to us.”

“Gujarat Government is working towards ‘Sarvangi (holistic), Sarvasparshi (all pervasive), Sarvasamaveshak (inclusive) and Sarvadoor Vikas. Development must reach all corners of Gujarat.” 



(4)  Shri Modi’s speech at Outreach Programme organized by Overseas Friends of BJP- 10th March 2013

“Our Mantra is ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat.’ For me, secularism means ‘India First’; “Whatever we do, it must be for India. We must never let India, her honor, the dreams of the people be adversely affected. India first it must be!”

“Wherever we stay, our links with our roots, our culture, our tradition must remain…the Bharat Prem and Bharat Bhakti must remain and increase over the years”

“Gujarat has created a new ray of hope and that in this atmosphere of darkness if a ray of hope emerges, it is natural that it draws the attention of the world.”

(5)  Shri Modi speaking to NRIs during 2012 Gujarat Day celebrations- 20th May 2012

“Your passports can change but not the colour of your blood. I laud your concern for Gujarat and its growth.”

“Gujarat has achieved balanced growth in all three sectors- Agriculture, Industry and Services.”

“Gujarat has contributed in both strands of the freedom struggle. If Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel led the non- violent struggle, Gujarat is also home to Shyamji Krishnavarma who inspired revolutionary nationalists.”
