India, the Super Power; Modi, the Super PM

India, the Super Power; Modi, the Super PM
(Editorial in Hindu Voice, July 2015)

Forty-six Indian nurses initially stranded at a hospital in Tikrit and later moved to Mosul (Iraq)  had been freed by the fighters of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. None of the nurses were touched (raped or molested, as is usually being done by ISIS). They all had been flown into Kerala on a special aircraft arranged by the Indian government, on 4th July 2014. It is a major achievement for the Indian government.

Father Alexis Prem Kumar, the head of a Jesuit organization, returned to India on 22nd Feb. 2015, nearly nine months after his abduction in Afghanistan. Talibans who have murdered many foreigners, allowed him safe return to India. Prem Kumar was all praise for the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that it was because of him that he was here.

Five fishermen were spared the death sentence in Sri Lanka and freed and arrived in Chennai to a big welcome on 21st Nov. 2014. The five men were sentenced to death earlier by a court in Colombo after being held guilty of smuggling drugs into the country. They were arrested in 2011. There are hundreds of other fishermen also who have been arrested by the Sri Lankan army and latter released, at the request of the Indian Government.

Press reports say that the Sri Lankan elections were manipulated by the Indian intelligence agencies, so as to influence the election results in favour of President Maithripala Sirisena. Even the UK election was influenced by the Modi (Hindutva) factor.

Australian PM calls Modi as ‘Narendra’, whereas Obama is called Barack by Modi.

I happened to meet one Nepalee. He said this time ‘we are going to vote for Modi’. The poor fellow does not know that India and Nepal are two different countries, although very friendly. The evacuation work undertaken by the Indian (Modi’s) govt. has influenced Nepalees to such an extent that most of the Nepalees think that Modi deserves their votes!

The evacuation work at Yeman was superb. When firing was going on from all sides, for Mr. V.K.Singh to go in to the field and rescue Indians is a stupendous job. Along with some 4,600 Indians, Singh's mission rescued about 1000 citizens of Britain, France, United States and many other countries.

Now the Myanmar Military operation.
In a first such cross-border operation, special forces of the Indian Army in coordination with the Air Force on 9th June 2015, carried out a surgical strike inside Myanmar, killing about 80 insurgents believed to be responsible for the deadly ambush in Manipur that killed 18 soldiers on June 4. The strike was carried out by a crack team of about 70 commandos of the Indian Army who finished the operation within 40 minutes. Elite commandos of the army trekked through the thick jungles for at least five kilometers before they reached the training camps and destroyed two camps. Without any injury or loss of lives or weapons, our Armed Forces have achieved this fete, which makes every Indian proud.

Could all these events have happened, if India was not considered as a Super Power? World has come to believe that India is indeed a Super Power.

BRICS Development Bank, is a multilateral development bank operated by the BRICS states (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) as an alternative to the existing US-dominated World Bank and IMF. The first President of BRICS was to be appointed by India.  Accordingly, Mr. K.V. Kamath has been appointed as the head of the BRICS bank.

Modiji has visited almost all major countries. His meeting and talking to world leaders is starkly different from that of his predecessor, Dr. Manmohan Singh. Modiji talked to all the world leaders from a position of strength and equality, whereas Singh was meek and submissive.

Modi’s speeches are full of rhetorical flourishes tugging at patriotic heart-strings. In contrast, Singh fares poorly because of his fumbling and unassertive body language which are uninspirational.
The historic lands-swap deal between India and Bangladesh is an achievement in itself. The Land Boundary Agreement signed recently in Dhaka will allow people living stateless in border enclaves finally to choose their nationality.

In order to develop Bharat and to benefit its citizens, Modiji has launched many schemes, such as: Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana,  Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Make in India, Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana,  Digital India,  Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana, Atal Pension Yojana, MUDRA Bank Yojana, Garib Kalyan Yojnaye, Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana, Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao Scheme, Pahal Scheme, Jan Dhan Yojana, etc.

Apart from the above schemes, the Modi government has allotted a sum of Rs.500 crores to raise strictly 'desi' cows. The  project, named 'Rashritya Gokul Mission', aims to promote locally bred cows. This scheme aims to even maintain the cows after they have passed their milk producing stage, for their dung and urine value.  "Gopal Ratna" awards will be given to those farmers who maintain the best cow centre.

June 21 was declared as the International Day of Yoga by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 2014. The declaration came after the call by PM Narendra Modi during his address to UN General Assembly on September 27, 2014, i.e. within 75 days. The resolution to this effect was cosponsored by about 177 countries. On 21st June, Yoga was celebrated all over the world on a grand scale.

Has any earlier Prime Minister, within one year in office, come out with such schemes and achievements?

Yes. India is indeed a Super Power and Modi is the Super Prime Minister, who will take Bharat to its pristine glory (Param Vaibhavam).
