HISTORY'S MAN OF DESTINY
Dear Mr Prime Minister,
Please permit me to introduce myself. I belong to the 1965 Batch of the Indian Administrative service in the Tamil Nadu Cadre. My profile is available in my blog link
You might recall that you gave me an opportunity to meet you in your office in Ahmadabad in January 2009 when you graciously introduced me to all the members of your Cabinet. You were also kind enough to tell me that you had read many of my articles on our national affairs.
815 Million strong electorate has voted overwhelmingly in your favour and elevated you to the Highest Executive Position of the Office of the Prime Minister of India. As a great public servant, you were elected thrice with overwhelming majority as the Chief Minister of Gujarat. In this capacity, you succeeded magnificently in transforming Gujarat State into the most developed and prosperous state in Bharatvarsha, apart from being it’s best administered state. God has now given you the splendid opportunity to apply your Moolamantra of ‘Maximum Governance through Minimum Government’ to the whole of Bharatvarsha.
The massive mandate given to the BJP in general and to you in particular has placed you in an exalted position of unassailable Political and Administrative Authority duly empowering you to give directions on a vast scale throughout our country --- from the Rann of Kutch in the West to Arunachal in the East, from Ladakh in the North to Kanyakumari in the South. I feel as if you are Walking with Destiny and that all your past life of struggle, unremitting toil and sacrifice has been but a preparation for this Hour and for this Trial. Your warnings to our countrymen during the last one year have been so numerous, so detailed and have been so terribly vindicated, that no one can now gainsay you. I have no doubt that you must now be having a profound sense of relief having been duly empowered by our people to liberate Bharatvarsha from the quagmire of UPA Government’s Himalayan corruption, malignancy of maladministration, runaway inflation, grave threats to our Internal and External Security and such other grievous afflictions. Our countrymen have thrown out our former Prime Minister on account of his Inefficiency, Ineffectiveness, nay, Listlessness. Dr Manmohan Singh became a willing prisoner of his Pathetic Paradox; Decided only to be undecided, resolved only to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity and all powerful on paper only to be impotent in practice.
During the last 12 days after your assumption of charge as the Prime Minister of India, you have already taken several bold decisions to honour not only the promises made in the BJP Election Manifesto but to also redeem the pledges you have made to the people of India during the hundreds of massive electoral rallies you addressed across the length and breadth of Bharatvarsha between September 2013 and May 2014.
Creation of a Special Investigation Tribunal (SIT) to track down Black Money, announcement of Plans to Clean Up the Holy River Ganga, to make that River navigable from Triveni to the Bay of Bengal, Interlinking of Rivers, stern measures to put down Maoist violence and such other long awaited Initiatives have already earned for you a boisterous and buoyant appreciation of our teeming millions. ALL THIS IS NOT THE END, NOT EVEN THE BEGINNING OF THE END, BUT ONLY THE END OF THE BEGINNING.
Millions and Millions of people in our country are waiting with bated breath the stern steps that you are anticipated to take to revive the Indian Economy, to give a Big Push to the Manufacturing Sector and Agricultural Sector, to put down all-pervasive Corruption at all levels of Governance, to tackle the problem of Massive Unemployment, to finally to bring down the prices of all the essential commodities, to give a sense of security to our women and to give a sense of purpose and direction to our youth.
One of the great saints of Vedic India said it for all time when he gave this Message: “IF ANY MAN SEEKS FOR GREATNESS, LET HIM FORGET GREATNESS AND ASK FOR TRUTH AND HE WILL FIND BOTH.” Through your life and example, you have given cubic content to these words of Vedic Wisdom. The common people look up to you mainly because you are a fearless champion of stern grim and scorching truth. I have no doubt whatsoever that even the ever-shifting and dangerous exigencies of politics will never persuade you to make compromises on your duly declared and Cherished National Goals.
There are times, perhaps once in sixty years when there is a sea-change in politics. It then does not matter, what you say or what you do. There is a tectonic shift in what the public wants and what it approves of. I am convinced that such a sea-change has been brought about by the 2014 Lok Sabha Polls and all of it has been for the Nationalistic and people-centered Agenda of their beloved leader Narendra Modi.
The people of Gujarat gave you the opportunity to serve them thrice as their Chief Minister. I FERVENTLY PRAY, TRUST AND HOPE THAT THE LONG SUFFERING MASSES OF INDIA WILL GIVE THEIR FULL MANDATE TO YOU TO SERVE THEM THRICE AS THEIR PRIME MINISTER IN FUTURE.
With warm regards and profound respects,
V. SUNDARAM IAS (r.)
