A passionate writer, poet and a lover of culture…these are some of the other ways to describe Narendra Modi. Despite his busy, often punishing schedule, Narendra Modi devotes time to some of the things he enjoys doing be it Yoga, writing, interacting with people on social media etc. In between his rallies you’ll see some Tweets by him on his experiences there. He has been writing since he was young. This section takes you through a fact of Narendra Modi that is often lost in this era of 24/7 Breaking News!

“Yoga is India’s gift to humankind through which we can reach out to the entire world. Yoga is not only about Rog Mukti but also about Bhog Mukti.”
One of Narendra Modi’s finest speeches on a topic that is very close to him- Yoga.
 
His books are as powerful, insightful and informative as his speeches. Each and every book by Narendra Modi is a treasure of information, rich ideas and chronicles what he went through in his life.
Get a glimpse of Gujarat during the dark days of the Emergency, read about Narendra Modi’s view of social equality and know why he feels its most important to leave a green planet for our future generations…
 
“Sakshibhaav is a compilation of my Samvaad with Jagad Janani Maa when I was 36…it connects the reader with me and enables the reader to know me through my words, not only newspapers.”
Did you know as a youngster Narendra Modi used to write a diary but burnt the pages every 6-8 months? One day a Pracharak saw him doing that and urged him against it…those papers took form of Sakshibhaav, a collection of thoughts of a 36-year-old Narendra Modi.
 
“What cannot be explained in prose can often be expressed in poetry…”
Here is an assortment of Narendra Modi’s poems. Written in Gujarati, they revolve around themes such as Mother Nature and Patriotism.
 
“Art, music and literature should not be dependent on the state. There should be no limitations. Governments should only recognize and promote such talent.”
This sums up Narendra Modi’s belief on popular culture. Having been actively involved in the anti-Emergency struggle, Freedom of Expression is an article of faith for him, which he follows in letter and spirit. You will enjoy this interaction of his with eminent artistes.
From the heart of autumn rises the spring!

ਰੇਗਿਸਤਾਨ ਦੀ ਪਿਆਸ ਅਤੇ ਮੁੱਖ ਮੰਤਰੀ ਮੋਦੀ ਦਾ ਵਾਅਦਾ: ਪਾਣੀ ਅਤੇ ਸੰਕਲਪ ਦੀ ਅਨੂਠੀ ਗਾਥਾ
December 20, 2023

It was New Year’s Day 2009. The unforgiving sun beat down on the parched sands of the Indo-Pak border in Gujarat in the Rann of Kutch. On this day, amidst the desolate landscape, Chief Minister Narendra Modi had arrived. His presence, a beacon of hope in the arid expanse, brought more than just news from the mainland. Shri Modi has always made it a point to spend important dates in the year with the armed forces personnel, and this year was no different.

He sat with the jawans, sharing stories and laughter. But beneath the camaraderie, a concern gnawed at him. He learned of their daily ordeal – the gruelling 50-kilometre journey conducted daily for water tankers to carry water from Suigam, the nearest village with potable supply, to the arid outpost.

The Chief Minister listened intently, his brow furrowed in concern. Shri Modi, a man known for his resolve, replied in the affirmative. He pledged to find a solution and assured the Jawans that he would bring them drinking water. Pushpendra Singh Rathore, the BSF officer who escorted Shri Modi to the furthermost point of the border, Zero Point, recalls that CM Modi took only 2 seconds to agree to the BSF jawans’ demands and made the bold claim that ‘today is 01 January – you will receive potable drinking water, through pipelines, within 6 months’.

Rathore explains that the Rann of Kutch is known for its sweltering and saline conditions and that pipelines typically cannot survive in the region. He recalls that some special pipelines were brought by Shri Modi from Germany to solve the problem. Exactly 6 months after the promise, in June, a vast reservoir was constructed near the BSF camp and water was delivered to it by the new pipeline.

The story of Shri Modi's visit to the border isn’t just about water; it is about trust and seeing a leader who listens, understands, and delivers. A leader whose guarantees are honoured.
