A prayer for Mr. Narendra Modi.
Congratulations, Mr. Narendra Modi, for your stupendous success in the 2014 Loksabha election.
You have been chosen by the Almighty to lead India. The 1.25 billion people of India have participated in a democratic revolution, the largest in the history of mankind, to give you the unequivocal mandate. They have come forward, shedding their glooms and grievances, with the great hope and aspiration that achche din aane waley hai.
We are aware that the road ahead is not going to be easy. You have been successful, through work more than words, in instilling a sense of belief and confidence. Still a billion plus people will likely have an equal measure of expectations and some are bound to be disappointed for various reasons. There would definitely be other distractions. Your opponents, politically or otherwise motivated, though temporarily numbed by the election results, will make every effort for a comeback. You will still continue to be under the microscope and every action or word of yours will still be analyzed for any possible aberration. The sinking secularist will keep on clutching to the debate of secularism vs. communalism because that is their sole straw of survival. The news-traders will continue their tirade at every opportune moment. Moreover of the more radical elements, some would still prefer to stop you at any cost while others will continue to consider you as their ‘target number one’.
You have to overcome all these and many more. Our well wishes are with you.
May you remain focused in your vision for India first and restore her lost pride.
May you have the strength to reclaim India, her heritage and her tradition!
May Indians, under your leadership, restore the glory of their wavered, age-old civilization!
May you revive the sense of self-esteem and worthiness in every Indian’s life!
May India get the benefit of maximum governance, minimum government!
May you succeed in providing a transparent, positive and decisive administration!
May you remain unfazed in your resolution to eradicate the curse of discrimination and corruption from Indian life!
May you lead us to our swaraj again, through su-raaj and free us from the shackles of poverty and despair.
May you succeed in promoting development as a mass movement with your mantra of sabka saath, sabka vikas!
May all citizens feel uniformly Indian, irrespective of language, caste, region and religion!
May all Indians, enjoy the fruit of development for all and appeasement for none!
May true secularism, beyond gimmicks of iftar party and politics of skull caps, re-emerge and prevail!
May you guide Hindus to become better Hindus, Muslims to become better Muslims!
May India, as a country, stride into the 21st century, with the respect as a world power!
May the message of vasudhaiva kuṭumbakam, emanating from Bharat, attain its desired global acceptance!
We, the1.25 billion people of India, are with you.
May Parmatma bless you!
