Satyameva Jayate: Truth Alone Triumphs

My dear sisters and brothers,

The law of nature is that Truth alone triumphs – Satyameva Jayate. Our judiciary having spoken, I felt it important to share my inner thoughts and feelings with the nation at large.

The end brings back memories of the beginning. The devastating earthquake of 2001 had plunged Gujarat into the gloom of death, destruction and sheer helplessness. Hundreds of lives were lost. Lakhs were rendered homeless. Entire livelihoods were destroyed. In such traumatic times of unimaginable suffering, I was given the responsibility to soothe and rebuild. And we had whole heartedly plunged ourselves into the challenge at hand.

Within a mere five months however, the mindless violence of 2002 had dealt us another unexpected blow. Innocents were killed. Families rendered helpless. Property built through years of toil destroyed. Still struggling to get back on its feet from the natural devastation, this was a crippling blow to an already shattered and hurting Gujarat.

I was shaken to the core. ‘Grief’, ‘Sadness’, ‘Misery’, ‘Pain’, ‘Anguish’, ‘Agony’ – mere words could not capture the absolute emptiness one felt on witnessing such inhumanity.

On one side was the pain of the victims of the earthquake, and on the other the pain of the victims of the riots. In decisively confronting this great turmoil, I had to single-mindedly focus all the strength given to me by the almighty, on the task of peace, justice and rehabilitation; burying the pain and agony I was personally wracked with.

During those challenging times, I often recollected the wisdom in our scriptures; explaining how those seating in positions of power did not have the right to share their own pain and anguish. They had to suffer it in solitude. I lived through the same,experiencing this anguish in searingly sharp intensity. In fact, whenever I remember those agonizing days, I have only one earnest prayer to God. That never again should such cruelly unfortunate days come in the lives of any other person, society, state or nation.

This is the first time I am sharing the harrowing ordeal I had gone through in those days at a personal level.

However, it was from these very built up emotions that I had appealed to the people of Gujarat on the day of the Godhra train burning itself; fervently urging for peace and restraint to ensure lives of innocents were not put at risk. I had repeatedly reiterated the same principles in my daily interactions with the media in those fateful days of February-March 2002 as well; publically underlining the political will as well as moral responsibility of the government to ensure peace, deliver justice and punish all guilty of violence. You will also find these deep emotions in my recent words at my Sadbhavana fasts, where I had emphasized how such deplorable incidents did not behove a civilized society and had pained me deeply.

In fact, my emphasis has always been on developing and emphasizing a spirit of unity; with the now widely used concept of ‘my 5 crore Gujarati brothers and sisters’ having crystallised right at the beginning of my tenure as CM itself from this very space.

However, as if all the suffering was not enough, I was also accused of the death and misery of my own loved ones, my Gujarati brothers and sisters. Can you imagine the inner turmoil and shock of being blamed for the very events that have shattered you!

For so many years, they incessantly kept up their attack, leaving no stone unturned. What pained even more was that in their overzealousness to hit at me for their narrow personal and political ends, they ended up maligning my entire state and country. This heartlessly kept reopening the wounds that we were sincerely trying to heal. It ironically also delayed the very justice that these people claimed to be fighting for. Maybe they did not realize how much suffering they were adding to an already pained people.

Gujarat however had decided its own path. We chose peace over violence. We chose unity over divisiveness. We chose goodwill over hatred. This was not easy, but we were determined to commit for the long haul. From a life of daily uncertainty and fear; my Gujarat transformed into one of ShantiEkta and Sadbhavana. I stand a satisfied and reassured man today. And for this, I credit each and every Gujarati.

The Gujarat Government had responded to the violence more swiftly and decisively than ever done before in any previous riots in the country. Yesterday’s judgement culminated a process of unprecedented scrutiny closely monitored by the highest court of the land, the Honourable Supreme Court of India. Gujarat’s 12 years of trial by the fire have finally drawn to an end. I feel liberated and at peace.

I am truly grateful to all those who stood by me in these trying times; seeing through the facade of lies and deceit. With this cloud of misinformation firmly dispelled, I will now also hope that the many others out there trying to understand and connect with the real Narendra Modi would feel more empowered to do so.

Those who derive satisfaction by perpetuating pain in others will probably not stop their tirade against me. I do not expect them to. But, I pray in all humility, that they at least now stop irresponsibly maligning the 6 crore people of Gujarat.

Emerging from this journey of pain and agony; I pray to God that no bitterness seeps into my heart. I sincerely do not see this judgement as a personal victory or defeat, and urge all – my friends and especially my opponents – to not do so as well. I was driven by this same principle at the time of the Honourable Supreme Court’s 2011 judgement on this matter. I fasted 37 days for Sadbhavana, choosing to translate the positive judgement into constructive action, reinforcing Unity and Sadbhavana in society at large.

I am deeply convinced that the future of any society, state or country lies in harmony. This is the only foundation on which progress and prosperity can be built. Therefore, I urge one and all to join hands in working towards the same, ensuring smiles on each and every face.

Once again, Satyameva Jayate!

Vande Mataram!

Narendra Modi

My Man of the Year (And the Future)

Reams of Newsprint has been expended, Hours (or calendars) of Airtime broadcast, Terra bytes of data uploaded maligning this person, notwithstanding the fact that Court write thousands of files with orders absolving him of any complicity. Why should it stop? A whole new industry was spawned, mothered by “The Family” and their cronies who saw biggest danger for their very existence and “Joyful” living at our cost, in this man who has been called all kinds of names. This industry thrived for 11 years on sustained barrage of attack against a “Constitutionally” elected leader of the most progressive state, not just this time but 3 more times, an industry that consisted of Media, NGOs and “Bought-out” Officers of the same regime, with carrots of power and lucre dangled in front of them.

But then good times (just like bad times for some) doesn’t last. The Empire is surely crumbling – the carefully nurtured, cosy nest is now stirred by Karma. Truth Triumphs we say yes, Satyameva Jayate. Cobwebs of lies however thick or dense gets cleared.

He,  a man who on 143rd day of assuming office faces managing a daunting situation as a result of “deliberate” burning to death of passengers on a train.

He “who was refused assistance” by neighboring states (co-incidentally all ruled by his opponents) when he sought augmentation of the security forces – even there, lies were being spread, check exhibits at the end of this piece. What these cronies forget – once you get something up on the web, sticky place that web is always retains traces (and trails). Army was called in shortest possible time (in fact faster than other places where rioting is the norm than exception)

He, who brought a this disastrous situation under control admirably (not my words, courts after courts vindicated and appreciated his stand) within 3 days and after that day in March 2002 this state under his watch never, yes never saw a communal incident/riot, or a terrorist act.

He, a people’s man, against whom shameless elected members of this great Nation Petitioned a a Foreign President, But he rebuffed an attempt by that Government’s representatives when they called on him refusing an appointment because he stood by our diplomat who was insulted in that country.

He, who on a trip abroad, defended the CM of a state ruled by his opponent party which saw inept handling of a automobile manufacturer plant crisis.

He, the leader of a state whose Progress and Development story were dissected to the minutest details and taken potshots at while foreign powers saw benefits – political, economical and strategic –  of engaging with a Progressive and Visionary for mutual benefits

He is the Dictator, He is Maut Ka Saudagar, He is the Man who comes riding a Horse to solve all problems, He is a murderer, He reminded EnglishPanini of Hitler, He supervised Pogrom, He presided over the Holocaust, He is Communal, He is a liar, His Development Stories are all fake, He is plain lucky, He is all rhetoric, He is one who faces a setback no matter what happens anywhere, He is divisive….. and so on

He is Narendra Modi – the Prime Minister Designate and a Leader who made this whole industry spawned by CONgress and their cronies redundant. Main Stream Media was simply ignored &  He reached out to people directly through the Media of the future – The Social Media. He sets the agenda of discussion for weeks and months together for the opposition and the Media. He overcame all the obstacles erected, and led the state to greater progress by the day – where he instilled (or restored?)  “Asmita” of this enterprising populace. Everyone was proud to be a Gujarati or happy to do something with Gujarat. Proved that “Anything” is possible, a state where development was not only done, but impacted day to day life of “you” and “me” A state where even staunch opponent, Congress/Communists sent representative to study and emulate. That is what this Man realized with all the challenges thrown around him. He is manifestation of that famous saying  Build a wall using Bricks thrown at you. The Man for whom people are ready to pay and listen too (in the land where truckloads are paid and brought as audience), and here is the the Man who incidentally inspires Hashtags on Social Media  too

Dangerous because his Vande Mataram Reverberates
Dangerous because his Vande Mataram Reverberates

He is the person who was thought dangerous by an Opposition leader because – He is fiercely Ideological, he is Incorruptible and He is too Nationalistic. He rouses millions of people with his call of Bharat Mata ki Jai, His Vande Mataram reverberates so dangerously shaking the foundation of Secularism (sic) said this so called opponent. Yes, it is on record. These qualities make Narendra Modi dangerous and hence have to be very careful about him, said this Honorable CONgressman.

After a day when a Metropolitan court absolved him (the last case) – Check Time line of Sri Vijay on Twitter dated 26th December for amazing facts on the entire legal process where Modi triumphed all adversities.

Bharat Mata Ki Jai - Victory to India - Satyameva Jayate
Bharat Mata Ki Jai – Victory to India – Satyameva Jayate

While there check out on the Teesta Setalvad misdeeds who made a fortune lying and fronting against Narendra Modi for 11 long years. Someone who had vamoosed for long suddenly surfaced 2 days ago in fond hope that the court order would favour her. She has been most fiercely vocal (& vicious) peddling lies, making witnesses issue false statements and the last straw for a drowning activist Zakia Jafri, the hapless widow whose personal tragedy she tried to milk fell apart. To demystify her persona and bust her lies, you only need to search on Google for – Kasuar Banu, Zaheera Sheikh, Rais Khan Pathan, Gulbarg funds misappropriation.

And here is what the Court Jester of CONgress party Digvijaya Singh lied through his teeth


Is this a piece of a sycophant! Oh yes! By all means Judge this piece any which way. I am Proud of having written this tribute to my Man of the Future, My Man for India, My Man for all Right Reasons.

Pranams Sri Narendra Modi ji
