By the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, the grandson of Jawaharlal Nehru, the government by the direct descendant of the Nehru Dynasty under the Indian National Congress (INC) came to an end. His widow, an uneducated Italian Christian, continued the Dynasty Rule under a Congress-led hotchpotch coalition called UPA, which was voted out of power in early 2014.
During the decade-long UPA government, the Indian economy was in a shambles, mired in massive corruption indulged in by all its Ministers – each one vying with one another in looting the National Exchequer.
In retrospect, looking back over the Dynasty Rule of nearly seven decades since independence under the INC Party, India could gain the status of only 10th place in the world economic progress rating, although the neighboring China under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) could become 2nd most powerful nation in the world despite the fact that INC was established four decades prior to the establishment of CCP
Then the year 2014 heralded. In a spectacular festival of democracy, the world’s largest political party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), won the election with absolute majority, and its Prime Ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, became the 14th P.M. of India on 26th May 2014. Since then the country witnessed remarkable growth and progress, aided by his corruption-free government, attaining the status of fifth largest economy in the world.
It is during the inexorable passage of time since the “Modi-Era” began in 2014 that the essays included in this book were all penned by the Author, touching upon various aspects of the turn of events and of the friends and fous of Modi. By paraphrasing the sayings of Swami Vivekananda: “friends and foes are all instruments in the hands of PM Modi to help India work out its own karma” and lead the nation to greater heights in the years to come.
