Dr. Rakesh Mishra is the Executive Secretary to the former President, Bharatiya Janata Party, Mr. Amit Shah.
One of the most exceptional and widely recognized leaders of the world Shri Narendra Damodardas Modi is shining on the world stage as a resplendent constellation today. His charismatic persona, his vivacious and dynamic character, and extraordinary capabilities have made him a distinguished statesman at not only the national level but also at the global level. There is a profound influence of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on the life of Shri Narendra Modi. Narendra Modi has been a torch bearer of the Pracharak Vyavastha initiated by Dr. Hedgewar. Shri Narendra Modi is not only a sagacious politician but also an ideal swayamsevak as envisioned by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. He is a natural leader with deep rooted core values of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. The aim of the Sangh is to awaken the feeling of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”.
प्रकृति: पंच भूतानि, गृहा लोका: स्वरास्तया ।दिश: कालश्च सर्वेषां सदा कुर्वन्तु मंड़्गलम् । ।
Shri Narendra Modi’s mantra has always been ‘Welfare of All’; his lifestyle reflects a fine blend of Yoga, Pranayama, Ayurveda and Swadhyaya. His love for flora and fauna is well-known. His time management skills are exemplary. Just like a majestic lion, he plans meticulously before executing his policies. His modest family background has developed a sense of compassion in him, while his scrupulous and scholarly approach has enriched his knowledge across various fields of life. He is serving the people by practicing the nine characteristics of dharma prescribed by Yajnavalka in its true sense. Only by practicing these nine characteristics of dharma, one can attain the highest honour. Be it as Chief Minister or as Prime Minister of the country, he understands and is well aware of the intricacies of the society and intersectionality of issues. A line which he often hums, aptly describes him:
अटल चुनौती, अखिल विश्व को, भला बुरा चाहे जो मानें ।डटे हुए हैं राष्ट्र धर्म पर विपदाओं में सीना ताने ।।
परम्परा अनुपम वीरों की, चरम साधकों के चिर साधन ।
पीड़ित, शोषित, दुखित बांधवों के, हमको हैं कष्ट मिटाने ।
प्रेम कवच, त्याग अस्त्र है, लगन धार है अमृत वाणी ।
सभी सुखी हों, यही स्वप्न है, मरकर भी यह सत्य बनाने ।।
Shri Narendra Modi never worries about cynics and critics. He works towards his goals with absolute dedication. As the government completes six years of successful governance, the citizens have developed an absolute faith and confidence in their leader. As the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, Shri Modi has stood shoulder to shoulder with his fellow citizens. Be it the former Prime Ministers or Chief Ministers, he gives a patient hearing to their views and acts accordingly. His maxim of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas” has been well demonstrated by him. He is known as a leader with a difference. There has been a paradigm shift in how India’s image is perceived at a global stage – earlier known for its shortcomings, India now stands tall even amongst the developed nations. Through his imagination and erudite, he has set a vision before the country. His expertise in various fields is well known. His main objective is welfare of the poor and down-trodden as he himself was brought up in poverty and had to struggle through extremely adversarial circumstances. The subjects that he had raised since the beginning were beyond the comprehension of the common. From being a tea-seller at a railway station, to leading India towards attaining self-reliance in space and defence sector, his journey has been a long one. He believes in having peaceful and friendly relation with neighbouring countries. His bold and fearless personality was well witnessed when he flew to Pakistan without concern for his security in 2014. Although born in a joint family, while serving the public office, he has shown highest integrity by maintaining distance from his blood relatives and accepting 135 crore citizens as his family. His lifestyle is a reflection of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s message.
क़दम निरंतर चलते हैं, श्रम जिनका अविराम है । विजय सुनिश्चित होती है उनकी, घोषित यह परिणाम है ।।काल चक्र के माथे पर जो पौरुष की भाषा लिखते हैं ।
उनकी मृत्यु कभी न होती, वे केवल करते दिखते हैं ।।
One of the reasons for his immense popularity is that he treats everyone equally. The following ukti is the most appropriate:
“पथ का अंतिम लक्ष्य नहीं है, सिंहासन चढ़ते जाना ।
सब समाज को लिए साथ में आगे है बढ़ते जाना ।।”
वैभव तब ही सच्चा समझें, सब सुख पायें लोक सभी ।बाधाओं, भय कुंठाओं से मुक्त धरागत शोक सभी ।।क़द गुण की पूजा न्याय व्यवस्था, अखिल विश्व में सरसाना ।।“
Shri Narendra Modi has devoted his whole life to achieve this goal. His aim is to relieve the people of their suffering of and uplift them. Every small and big scheme started by him is strengthening the national fabric. People love to listen to him, because he speaks from the core of his heart. Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya’s Antyodaya idea of upliftment of the last – antyodaya has been truly implemented by him. Pro poor welfare agenda is at the centre of all his schemes. People are well convinced about his intention of doing everything in the national interest.
Every step of Shri Narendra Modi is towards making India self-reliant and hence the following lines seem befitting:
जो सपना हमने देखा था, शैशव के भोले नयनों में ।स्वर्णिम इतिहास उमंग भरा चित्रित था मन में, वचनों में ।।
यह देश बनाएंगे ऐसा, आज़ादी जिसमें खिलती हो ।
चिर शांति सुमति उन्नति सरिता, पग–पग पर आकर मिलती हो ।
युग-युग पर पुनः प्रयाग बने, नन्दन कानन है सरसाना ।।कष्ट जो मिलेंगे मुस्कुराते सब सहेंगे हम ।
देश के लिए सदा जिएंगे और मरेंगे हम ।
Shri Narendra Modi wants India to flourish once again and acquire the status of Vishwa Guru through self-realisation and self-enlightenment. He is entering 71st year of his life, fulfilling the dreams of Swami Vivekananda.
We all pray for the healthy and happy life of Shri Narendra Modi. May his life continue to provide supreme leadership for our country and may Bharat Mata once again attain its prime.
