Narendra Modi Rocks Bangalore

narendra-modi

He came, he saw, he spoke, and he wowed. He’d already conquered Bangalore years ago. In his 28 April election speech on the eve of the Karnataka Assembly polls 2013, Narendra Modi simply notched up yet another triumph in a long series of triumphs that began with his third consecutive, definitive victory in the Gujarat Assembly polls. Nobody expected anything less. Just as Narendra Modi the Chief Minister delivers every single time, Narendra Modi, the committed BJP party worker (as he describes himself) too delivers every single time. Consistency in victory has been demonstrated by a handful of leaders in history. Narendra Modi’s name already stands in line with those leaders even as he continues to make history.

If this sounds like an exaggeration, consider just five lessons that his speech provides us:

1. The Art of Political Rallies

The last time anybody witnessed a crowd of a lakh-plus in Bangalore was in the days of Atal Bihari Vajpayee and team. This was during the BJP’s period of ascendancy in the political firmament, more than 15 years ago. And now, just one man managed to draw over a lakh Bangaloreans out of their homes on a Sunday evening, majority of whom were ordinary people like you and me, fed up with the rot perpetuated by the Congress, who want a decisive leader. If done honestly, political rallies and speeches are an art form, as D.V. Gundappa writes in his Rajya Shastra. But thanks to Mrs. Gandhi and her brand of bus-biryani brand of “supporters,” political rallies have become synonymous with cynicism and betrayal of trust. Narendra Modi has demonstrated that these rallies can be done well and honestly, and this is what continues to draw massive crowds to his speeches. This has been proved time and again, be it at SRCC, speeches in the Gujarat polls, the India Today Conclave, the FICCI, and now, Bangalore.

2. The Fine Art of Oratory

As I’ve mentioned numerous times in the past, Narendra Modi is perhaps the only politician in India today who practices the fine art of oratory. Every single speech of his is delivered impromptu. No notes, no fumbling, no “I lost it again,” no window dressing, and no empty promises. No leader since Independence barring Vajpayee has demonstrated the kind of clear articulation of ideas that Modi has. Nehru was an orator all right but his oratory was full of his “dreams” which translated into stifling socialism, the Kashmir problem, and the utter economic ruin of this nation. Dreams don’t help a country progress, ideas, and their implementation does. We need no better proof of this than the stellar work that the NDA did, and what Gujarat has achieved under Modi.

A lakh-plus people, and the moment Modi got on stage, there was pin drop silence. It was almost on autopilot—the pin drop silence would resume after the audience went berserk with applause as Modi delivered one verbal punch after another, and then waited as he wove his magic again, hanging on to every word. It really isn’t an exaggeration to say that Modi had literally mesmerized the crowd.

3. Credibility is its own Proof

Some sections of the BJP central leadership have never quite recovered from the double-drubbing the party received in 2004 and 2009 respectively. These sections have since remained content in their tiny islands of power localized almost entirely in Delhi. It is also moot exactly how many of these eminences have done any party work. Worse, they have also consistently displayed gross negligence in displaying a solid, united Opposition in Parliament. Each time the Congress handed scam after mammoth scam on the platter, they have simply made the right noises but have gone back into their stupor. And while they were in stupor, the Gujarat Chief Minister was busy fighting battles on all fronts by a determined and mounted opposition apart from delivering consistently good governance and development. This is how credibility is earned, and it is this credibility that draws those enormous crowds, and it is this credibility that has made Narendra Modi a darling in small towns in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, and Bihar. What this also means is that Modi has emerged as the glue that holds together the numerous ugly divisions that the Congress and others have created.

This reminds me of the 7th Century poet-philosopher, Neelakanta Dikshita’s verse:

yaaneva shabdaan vayamaalapaamah yaaneva charthaan vayamullikhamaha
taireva vinyasa vishesha bhavyaih ullsayantah kavayo jayanti

Here is a rough translation: The poet uses the same words which have the same meanings but the way he mixes and matches them produces delight to the mind. Let victory be to such poets!

Nothing illustrated the truth of this verse better than Narendra Modi’s speech today. He said the same things, he picked the same issues, and delivered the same criticism that other BJP leaders did. However, he possessed what they lacked: credibility. In his voice, the very same words were endowed with an authority that drove the crowd wild with rapture. Indeed, he had to intervene and request the audience to allow a certain BJP MP to complete his turn of delivering the election speech! The MP in question represents the locality in which the rally was held. Like a lion which takes over any forest it steps into, Modi completely dominated this MP’s turf. Indeed, he’s managed to dominate the Congress turf of Delhi not once, but twice, and the Congress was left stunned, scared into silence.

4. Comprehensive Dynastic Demolition

Again, perhaps no leader since Independence has taken apart the Nehru-Gandhi Dynasty effectively, so comprehensively, so methodically, and so fearlessly. In this, Narendra Modi’s approach too is shorn of rhetoric and based on facts. Instead of attacking Sonia Gandhi on her foreign origins, Modi has simply shown her for what she represents: every evil that the Congress has inflicted on this nation for more than five decades. And by refusing to even recognize Rahul Gandhi as someone of any consequence, Modi has altered the way the Congress needs to be looked at. And it’s not just Sonia and her son. Modi hasn’t spared that greatest makeup artist of all time, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. And none of Modi’s criticisms were personal—he simply showed the world the record of the horrors that the Nehru and his dynasty has inflicted on India. Even at the height of the anti-Indira, anti-Congress wave—i.e., during the Emergency years—the worst criticism leveled against the Dynasty was purely on personal grounds. And even when the NDA was in power, it showed no interest in making the Congress pay for its past sins. Modi however, has showed that there is an alternate, and a more effective way of doing it.

5. The Power of Social Media

Today’s speech was in many ways a reflection of the increasing power, reach, and influence of social media on almost all spheres of human activity. The collective applause, cheering, and other on-the-spot commentary emanating from the crowd was akin to Twitter hashtags: #paidmedia #pappu #namoforPM #namorocks and so on. I speak as an eyewitness: people were actually yelling these terms aloud at various points during Narendra Modi’s speech. Equally, the Congress party has completely lost the social media plot. Hired party foot soldiers watching Twitter trends and trying to get in the game is actually proof of the fact that the Congress’ social media strategy has bombed before it began. The support for Narendra Modi on social media isn’t today’s or yesterday’s development. It is an expression of disgust at how the Congress has wrecked the nation, and equally an expression of the yearning of millions of Indians for a strong, decisive, no-nonsense leader.

It might sound harsh but the fact is that today’s BJP election speech at Bangalore was more about Narendra Modi than about the BJP. Which should give reason for the party to take pride in: pride in the fact that it has produced a leader like Modi who has in the space of less than 3 years, rejuvenated the party, has taken the Delhi Sultanate head-on, knows the pulse of the people, and has emerged as perhaps the only hope for India.

    @NageshsidhantinS, yous said “People who run-down ‘Hinduism’ as a flawed principle (while it’s just a response to life or alignment with nature) are the worst offenders of the Secular world for a good reason that Hinduism IS the most liberal religion in this world. By practising universal brotherhood, respecting nature & fellow living beings,you are already a Hindu even if you are not born as one.”

    I agree with you absolutely. By that very definition, the fundamentalist fringe, its outgrowths like the outfits VHP/ BajDal/Ramsene and the religious party BJP, and individuals like Modi and the constituency of his fans- all of them fall clearly outside what according to you is Hinduism. The here blogger is no exception. I think it is this crude bigotry which is some kind of pseudo-Hinduism that the so called liberals attack (mostly), and here your definition gives them legitimacy!

    My stance is: It is only religious bigotry that induces people to see subtlety and refinement in the crudeness of speeches and actions of Modi and the like. It is religious bigotry that identifies modi’s constituency, the talk about ‘development’ being mere red herring.

  3. May 12, 2013 at 3:59 PM

    Dear JK, Mats,

    I guess it’s time to understand the term ‘Secular’ in its truest sense.

    Secular : One who has definite opinions, especially on the religious, political, social, ideological & cultural side of the society and yet open minded enough to accommodate those different from his/her own, provided they serve its(society’s) good interests.

    People who run-down ‘Hinduism’ as a flawed principle (while it’s just a response to life or alignment with nature) are the worst offenders of the Secular world for a good reason that Hinduism IS the most liberal religion in this world. By practising universal brotherhood, respecting nature & fellow living beings,you are already a Hindu even if you are not born as one.

    The problem with most of today’s (so called) liberals is that they don’t make provisions for these wonderful aspects of Hinduism in their narrative.

    In other words, if you are ‘attached’ to your opinions so strongly that you are blinded by them, even if the opinion is supposed to be liberal/secular, then you are communal.

    Unfortunately we have too many communal-minded amidst us masquerading as secular & that keeps blogs like these busy. Trying to unmask & seek truth. It’s just not about Modi, Hindus or Muslims.

    Let’s ask ourselves. Have we become that very same evil we are supposed to be fighting against??

    The best way to organise is to have the best oraganiser at the top, as the President of the BJP. The best person would be Narendra Modi. Everyone want him to be PM , but if he stands for PM, the party organization under Rajnath Singh will not gather strength. There has to be sacrifices made . The suggestion would be Narendra Modi as BJP President. Make Saurabh Patel as CM of Gujarat. Sushma Swaraj would be the ideal candidate for Prime MInistership. There has to be strategic thinking. BJP needs to be organised . They are not at present. Narendra Modi will do the organization of BJP very well. Let Sushma Swaraj be the PM and Narendra party president. You have a precedent in Congress . MMS and Sonia Gandhi. Hope readers will understand who is PM and who is proxy PM here and who will be PM and proxy PM when Sushma Swaraj and Modi fill the bill.

    The analysis of Karnataka poll says KJP played a spoil sport for BJP in little over 100 seats. The lackluster BJP leadership of Karnataka under-estimated the impact of KJP and did nothing to annihilate the effect of BSY.

    It is ridiculous to say that Modi’s magic did not work. He only made 3 speeches and do how on earth you think that would wash away the sins of BJP accumulated over 5 years?

    Sins of BJP: (i) No timely action against Reddy brothers, (ii) Took action against Yeddy only when Chargesheet is filed against him, (iii) Changing of CM from Gouda to Shettar (iv) Internal squabbles on regular basis (v) Poor performance in comparison to other BJP states

    On the positive note, BJP came out clean from all the mess and they should never compromise to allow elements like Reddy Bros into the party. It is not a rosy path for Congress of Karnataka too… They won the elections by using Caste equations and blessings of Mutts. If they take any decision to appease minorities, they will face the wrath too in 2014…

    JK, the lack of refinement in Modi’s speeches and their crudity do not make them adult fare. They make them (the speeches) merely childish. Only worshippers of the Modi persona can see worth in them. I am of the firm belief that it is only religious bigotry that prompts the Modi-fans to promote him as a model of goodness in everything under the sun. Even they know in their hearts that most of the Modi propaganda material, the ‘development’ stories, are fake.

    Home minister says BJP and RSS runs Terror camp but refrain from naming VHP and other outfits, but same congress used to call VHP, BD a Hindu militant group openly all of sudden so called love has generated between them…

    (i) No accountability or responsibility, (ii) Enjoy the power while it lasts, (iii) Blackmail the party to meet their demands, (iv) Claim the ownership if party succeeds & blame the party if it fails.

    May 6, 2013 at 5:06 PM

    Very common pattern is emerging from last 2 subsequent election took place in Gujarat and Karnataka is that Congress went out to public with Organization based party without naming CM candidate while BJP did US style of campaigning that is of personality based electioneering..

    In Gujarat it failed due to Modi’s charisma but in Karnataka it all set to work as people don’t know who is CM candidate from congress so people of Karnataka didn’t got any opportunity to dig into his history and find out his performance at state level so far. At least in Gujarat Modi openly named Ahmed Patel could be Congress CM Candidate.

    Very interesting to see here in Karanataka is that RSS supports KJP and VHP and other right wing seems to be supporting Congress..By the way BJP is down due to its own wrong doing by central leadership especially Sushma, Gadkari etc., by not properly addressing Yeddy’s issue and they where too late by that time media and people like Santhosh Hegde did lot of damage to BJP’s image.

    There are more chances that Congress will enter into 2014 election also without naming PM candidate.

    Dear Abhijeet,

    Thanks for your kind response and info on NAMO visiting RSS HQ. The reason for my outburst was, I had seen many RSS pracharaks, VHP/Bajarang Dal leaders openly supported Vaghela (Cong) and Keshubhai (GJP) without any shame. When I was working in Andhra couple of years ago, I was disgusted at the way some in RSS cadre took money from Congress & Telugu Desam leaders to support in local body elections. When I raise these issues with Vibhag pracharak, he said RSS always support good people from any party. The very same people whine about how Congress has been destroying India… My anger was not against the RSS organisation, but against the current weak & opportunist leadership of RSS/VHP. I feel very sad when I see such rapid deterioration of values in a patriotic organisation like RSS.

    2.Shows that he can have one so divergent from his followers.
    3.will it affect us indians,i do not know in what way.
    4.will it be held against us in anyway in future.i do not see anything again.

    A leader like Advani has given many others to raise and thus building a team.The team might scratch each others back or not,but there will be definitely some sort of difference of opinion,which will keep the leader in check.He is active and attended most of the parliament sessions,i do not understand why he should disappear.He should appear for good.
    How come you are looking away from the work in the party he has done .Do you know what sort of rough weather that is?
    I think your disrespect is a bookish one and one that does not take into account the long years of experience.

    The issue with most of the so called educated voters of Karnataka, especially Bangalore is that most of them are arm chair politicians. As educated, they know the need of effective commutation. They also know oratory skill without any essence or element of truth will not stand long. Why Mode is appealing to vast educated people in India is not only his oratory skills but the truth he communicates backed by facts. But what do these arm chair suppers n will do on Election Day? They will simply remain indoors, without going out for voting. Unless they vote for Modi’s party, helping him to place proper building block for his March to Delhi, these kinds of supporting words will have no effect. Hence enquire before Election Day itself your voter’s id and physically vote on the D’ day.

The man is marching ahead in his mission like a sanyasi and see how fast his purity become contagious.Never before in Independent India was such a crowd for the chief Minister of a state in another state. He has renounced family life for SEVA, considering the entire Gujarat as his family, given a chance it will not take much time to make whole Nation as his family. What a wonderful opportunity for India for it’s resurrection under such a leader. Hope leaders in BJP will think by moving out of their genetic conditioning. 2014election should be treated as Mahakumbh of democracy and if BJP fails to act in a decisive way perhaps it will have towait for a century to think of comming to power and by that time the country might have to face a revolution if present way of administration continues.

I am sure it helped neutralise the opposition to NAMO from some section of Gujarat VHP. Please realise that although having NAMO at helm of party affair will surely help BJP rise to the occasion and win 2014 elections, but our country cannot progress with just one good man at the top. Mr Modi has support of millions & millions of hard working Sangh-Parivar workers at every corner of this country who always have stood with him, & will continue to stand with him & assit him in his goal of nation building. Just imagine if in future Mr Modi become larger than his party or even Sangh Pariwar & lose his mind due to absolute power(I hope thid dosen’t happen), then to whome shall the common Hindus turn to ??? Please realise its the blind devotion to Nehru & Indira that made this country pay for their sins. Cadre based Organizations are anyday bigger than any human being no matter how popular he or she becomes. This goes to not just NAMO but to also some individuals in Sangh Parivar trying to stop him.So please think twice before condemning VHP or RSS as some villians trying to stop NAMO.

    The biggest mistake done by NDA when they were in power was failure to punish the corrupt of Congress party and instead they let it to grow. In addition, NDA was equally suffered from back-stabbing of fraudulent RSS/VHP cadre and I believe they are still doing as BJP isn’t completely under their control. Gujarat is the only place where their vilification campaign and a collusion with crooked Congress backfired. No wonder No-Nonsense Modi is the most feared man for both the vile opposition and some opportunist rogue gangs of RSS/VHP/BJP.

    Now NaMo understands that Social media is firmly behind him and even his one word will be reverberated through out the world. He demolished Congress through its own deeds and he should deliver these kind of punches one after the other.
