UNTOLD STORIES OF PM MODI - PART 21
‘MODI HAI TO MUMKIN HAI…’
he narrator shares his vari-
ous experiences with Naren-
dra Modi and how every inter-
action with the PM left him
enlightened and wiser. He be-
lieves that Modiji has the acu-
men of an industrialist and
his ideas are truly transfor-
mational and futuristic.
When I met him for the first
time, he was very direct in
telling me, “No, you won’t ex-
pand your business in Vapi.
You will do it in Kutch.” It was
2002 and the devastating
memoriesof Bhujearthquake
were as alive as if it was yes-
terday
. I was in disbelief of
what Modiji had just said. I
replied, “Sir, Kutch is still
reeling under the tremors of
the quake. There is no water,
electricity
, roads. How can we
establish a textile plant in
such a place?” Modiji said
“No Goenkaji. You do not
know the strength of Kutch.
The land in Kutch has the
power to yield a dollar for a
rupee worth of investment
you make!” He continued, in a
very matter of fact tone “You
are a businessman Goenkaji
and I am a politician. But this
suggestion to build Kutch is
personal. And rest assured,
whatever support you need, I
will facilitate that.”
Well, any industrialist
would have considered the
decision to enter Kutch over
and again at that point. But I
gathered courage which was
ultimately built on the tre-
mendous faith I have on
Modiji. His suggestion to me
was so genuine, that it
touched a chord in my heart.
His words were so replete
with confidence, that I was
sure that this was not the
voice of politics, it was indeed
the voice of his mann. We ex-
ported the first towel in 9
months. We managed water
via a 300km pipeline from
Narmada. We made available
electricity and roads. Today
we have more than 25,000 em-
ployees. We also invested Rs
25,000 crore. Well, at that time,
it was difficult for anyone to
think of investing in Kutch.
But Kutch is exactly from
where we started to grow. The
Welspun Group had definite-
ly started out on its road to
success from Kutch.
From then, I got the oppor-
tunity to travel with Modiji
and got to know him closely
as one of the most genuine
persons one can ever know. I
was part of the delegations
that visited Australia, China
and what I realized during
these interactions with
Modiji was that he had a
completely unique perspec-
tive about everything. He
looks at everything in a way
nobody does! His level of in-
quisitiveness is unparalleled.
After his visit to the solar
park in China, he ensured
that solar power in India too
witnessed an enormous
growth. In 2006-07, he got the
solar policy for the first time
in India. His vision was su-
premely ambitious. His vi-
sion of providing energy at
Rs 19 per unit and giving Rs
14 per unit on an average in a
period of 15 years came at a
time when people knew very
little about solar power. No
one was prepared to believe
in it! Modiji was convinced
that solar energy was the
greatest power alternative in
India which could help us re-
duce our dependence on oil
and gas. He would always talk
of renewables! He would en-
vision panels over the Nar-
mada canal, and then put up
a technical question to me
“How do you think this will
benefit us?” I would say “Sir
we will save on land, farmers
will get electricity.” “No!”
Modiji would correct me. The
biggest advantage is that ef-
ficiency would go up by 2%.
When water flows below the
panel, it has a cooling effect.
The panel works better.”
Thus, going into the minutest
detail of everything is a hall-
mark of Narendra Modi.
Let me tell you, when we
will look back from 2030, we
will see that it was this man’s
vision to make India the larg-
est in renewable energy
. And
we are sure to be somewhere,
whether we talk about hydro-
gen, ammonia, or solar. India
is going to be absolutely self-
reliant. This dream which
was envisioned in 2006-07 will
becomearealityby2030.India
is already a global example
now in the renewables sector.
As far as I am concerned,
he was very sure what he
wanted from me. “I want 5 Fs.
I don’t want just a cotton ex-
porter. I don’t want yarn. I
want Farms; from farms I
want Farming; from farming
I want Factories. From facto-
ries I want to tap into Fash-
ion; and from fashion I want
Foreign exchange” he would
say. So he wanted maximum
value-addition in India, job
creation, and that the GoI
should get foreign exchange.
He was the CM then and
came up with Vibrant Guja-
rat in 2007-08. The entire
world was reeling under the
great recession sparked by
the crash of the Lehman
Brothers. But he came up
with Vibrant Gujarat. I met
him and said “Sir, we must
defer Vibrant.” He said
“What do you say Goenkaji?
Now is the opportunity.” I
said “No investor is going to
turn up. The world has taken
an economic downturn.” But
Modiji was determined. Be-
ing at the helm of leadership
in the state, he just said noth-
ing doing. There is an oppor-
tunity here as well.
ThusModijiisvision,deter-
mination and leadership dif-
fused together. When I met
him recently, he spoke about
changing the ship industry,
how shipping could incorpo-
rate e-shipping, how we could
use wind turbines and gener-
ate hydrogen from water and
use the energy to run ships!
Nowagain,thisisallaboutthe
vision of this extraordinary
gentleman,thedreamsthathe
has for India. These are all
transformational, futuristic
ideas. And he is making them
a reality
. They are happening
in our country now. Take
Start-upIndia,StandUpIndia,
child education, focus on the
girl child, for example. The
way he mingles with children,
his exuberance, warmth and
playfulness is worth admir-
ing. He has given all the press-
ing issues of India a concrete
form and transformed them
into revolutionary ideas. Who
would not be inspired by such
leadership?
TO BE CONTINUED...
T
‘MODIJI IS ONE OF THE MOST GENUINE
PERSONS ONE CAN EVER KNOW, MEET’
F
rom then, I got the opportunity to travel
with Modiji and got to know him closely as
one of the most genuine persons one can
ever know. I was part of the delegations that
visited Australia, China and what I realized during
these interactions with Modiji was that he had a
completely unique perspective about everything.
He looks at everything in a way nobody does! His
level of inquisitiveness is unparalleled.
PM MODI: THE MAN WHO HAS
DREAMT THE INDIAN DREAM!
COMPILED AND EDITED BY
SHASHIKANT SHARMA
AND SHWETA SHARMA
This is all about the vision of this
extraordinary gentleman, the dreams
that Modiji has for India. These are all
transformational, futuristic ideas. And
he is making them a reality. They are
happening in our country now. Take Start-up
India, Stand Up India, child education, focus
on the girl child, for example
I want 5 Fs. I don’t want just a cotton exporter. I
don’t want yarn. I want Farms; from farms I want
Farming; from farming I want Factories. From
factories I want to tap into Fashion; and from
fashion I want Foreign exchange.

were among those who
came out to vote in the

Narendra Modi of vio-
lating the model code by
taking out a “road-
show” before casting
his vote in the second
phase of polling in Gu-
jarat and claimed that
the Election Commis-
sion is “afraid” to act.
Congress head of

the issue.
“The BJP is continu-
ously violating the mod-
el code but the EC is not
acting against them and
has turned silent. It

Khera said the value
of the vote of the prime
minister or that of any
common man is the
same. “But how is it
that the PM holds a
roadshow for 2.5 hours
when he goes to vote,”
he said.
“What are the com-
pulsions of the Election
Commission that it can-
not see any violations
by the prime minister,”
he said.
“We have been mak-
ing representations to
the Election Commis-
sion at various levels.
Every second or third
day, we have made some
representations or the
other in Gujarat, in Del-
hi, but, I am afraid the

looks like it is willingly
under pressure,” he
told reporters.

SC JUNKS PIL ON
‘WRONG HISTORICAL
FACTS’ ON TAJ MAHAL
New Delhi: The Supreme
Court on Monday refused
to entertain a plea seek-
ing removal of what the
petitioner claimed were
“wrong historical facts”
related to the construc-
tion of the Taj Mahal from
history books. This is the
second such petition it
has heard in the last two
months. A bench asked
the petitioner, “What kind
of PIL is this?”
What will be the next course of action of RJD and Left leaders?
Shamsher Singh
New Delhi: The Left
parties had opposed the
BharatJodoYatraof the
Congress in Kerala.
Since in Kerala there is
a one-on-one contest be-
tween the two parties
and both the parties
openly fight against
each other, there was no
question of the leaders
of the Communist par-
ties joining Rahul Gan-
dhi’s visit there. But it is
not known what will be
the stand of the commu-
nist parties going for-
ward. Keep in mind that
there is good co-opera-
tion between the Con-
gress and the Commu-
nist parties and in West
Bengal both fought the
elections in coordina-
tion.InKerala,theparty
usually runs according
to Prakash Karat, but
elsewhere Sitaram
Yechury has more pow-
er and Rahul Gandhi
has a very good relation-
ship with Yechury
. Only
then it is being specu-
lated that communist
leaders may also partici-
pate in the two-month-
long yatra.
It is being expressed
that if the leaders of
Rashtriya Janata Dal
and Janata Dal U, the al-
lies of the Congress in
Bihar, join the Bharat
Jodo Yatra, then along
with them the leaders of
the communist parties
can also be a part of the
yatra. CPI, CPM and
CPIML are part of all
three Grand Alliance in
Bihar. Although the
MLAsof thesethreepar-
ties are not part of the
government, they have
extended outside sup-
port to the government.
That’s why it is being
speculated that the lead-
ers of the parties of the
Grand Alliance may at-
tend the Congress rally
.
However,Chief Minister
Nitish Kumar and Depu-
ty Chief Minister
TejashwiYadavhavenot
yet decided in this re-
gard. Now the Congress
yatra will remain in the
state of North India and
the leaders of the Con-
gress believe that if the
leaders of RJD, JDU and
Left join the yatra then
there can be benefit in
theelection-boundstates
of Rajasthan, Madhya
Pradesh and Chhattis-
garh.

New Delhi:Presidentof
India has approved in-
troduction of a new de-
sign for the President’s
Standard and Colour
and Indian Navy Crest
for the Indian Navy
,
which were unveiled at
VisakhapatnamonNavy
Day on Sunday
.
Resonant to the ongo-
ing National endeavour
to move away from the
colonial past, the Naval
Ensign was amended to
anewDesignthatdraws
inspiration from our
history where in the
Red Horizontal and Ver-
tical Lines on the White
Ensign were replaced
with an Blue Octagon
with Twin Golden Bor-
ders encompassing the
National Emblem atop
a clear anchor and ‘Na-
tional Emblem ‘Satya-
mev Jayate’ inscribed
on the stock of the An-
chor. Further, the Na-
tionalFlagwasretained
on the upper left can-
ton. The erstwhile de-
sign of the President’s
Standard and Colour
for the Indian Navy was
instituted on Septem-
ber 6, 2017. The design
comprised one each
horizontal and vertical
red bands intersecting
at the centre and the
National Emblem in-
serted at their intersec-
tion. The National Flag
was at the upper left
canton adjacent to the
staff and a Golden Ele-
phant was at the lower
right canton on the fly
side. This design was
inspired from the erst-
while Naval Ensign.
The Indian Navy
adopted a new Naval
Ensign on September 2
this year, and the new
design of the Presi-
dent’s Standard and
President’s Colour
awarded to the Indian
Navy incorporates this
change. The new design
of the President’s
Standard and Colour
comprises three main
constituents - the Na-
tional Flag in the upper
left canton adjacent to
the staff, the State Em-
blem underscribed
with ‘Satyamev Jayate’
in Golden Colour on
the upper right canton
on the fly side, and a
Navy Blue - Gold Octa-
gon below the Golden
State Emblem.

have “boycotted” Rahul
Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo
Yatra as editors and
owners are under pres-
sure. Addressing a press
conference here a day

Yatra entered the Con-
gress-ruled state, Gehlot
claimed the media has
completely failed to ful-
filtheirresponsibilityas
the fourth pillar of de-
mocracy, and history
will not forgive them for
that.
As Gehlot launched
his tirade against the
media, AICC General
Secretary (Communica-
tion) Jairam Ramesh
intervened to defend the
journalists present
there, saying they
should not be blamed as
they have been doing
their job properly
.
However, he also la-
mented Yatra’s cover-
age in mainstream was
not as per their expecta-
tions. Gehlot said Yatra
is getting overwhelm-
ing support from across
country  on social me-
dia. “And I want to tell
you that you should tell
your owners that we
aren’t going to be afraid,
Rahul Gandhi’s path is
of truth  non-violence
 his caravan has be-
gun,” he told media.
“You do your duty  send
your coverage (to your of-
fice)...but owners  edi-
tors are under pressure. I
charge that they have
boycotted such a big
march,” he said.

Jhalawar (PTI): Hitting out
at PM Narendra Modi, Con-
gress leader Jairam Ramesh
charged that the possibil-
ity of India’s division has
increased due to his policies
and that “political dictator-
ship” is becoming a reality.
“There are 3 challenges be-
fore the country, which need
to be fought. The possibility
of division of India has in-
creased due to PM’s policies.
Economic disparity is rising
and divisive ideology are
the two other challenges,”
Ramesh told media at Bali
Borda village of Jhalawar
dist at a press conference
being held during the
Bharat Jodo yatra.
Deeply impressed...
This is not a Yatra to win
elections, rather the Yatra
issues are related to masses
and that is why it is getting
immense support,” he said.
Gehlot also spoke on Gujarat
elections and said, “ Similar
convoy of PM had come out
in 2017 also and EC should
take action. Whether it is PM

action.” Meanwhile, Senior
Cong leader Jairam Ramesh
said, Rahul Gandhi is a yatri
of India, but there are other
people who come along. So
far we have passed through
seven states and from 26
January 2023 will start the
second phase of Bharat Yatra
during which the ‘Join hand
to hand campaign’ will be
launched,” he said.
Several leaders including former Deputy CM
Sachin Pilot, Khiladi Lal Bairwa, Harish Meena,
Ramnivas Gavadia, Suresh Modi, and Hemaram
Choudhary reached Borda village in Jhalawar on
Monday and participated in the massive Bharat
Jodo Yatra being carried out by Congress leader
Rahul Gandhi. KC Venugopal, Jairam Ramesh,
Govind Singh Dotasra, Dheeraj Gurjar, and social
worker Yogendra Yadav also walked. A large
number of women and children also participated
in the Yatra.
On the second day of Yatra at Kali Talai on Monday,
ex- MP Raghuveer Meena got injured after fall-
ing down. Due to this, the finger of his left-hand was
fractured. The incident happened when Meena was tying
his shoe laces during the yatra, when he fell down due
to the push from the crowd. He was rushed to a hospital
near Jhalawar  was treated by the doctors on time.

Jaipur: Targeting
Cong, BJP State Presi-
dent Dr Satish Poonia
said, “I will ask 18 ques-
tions to Congress leader
Rahul Gandhi in 18
days regarding issues
of public interest in
Raj. The first one is that
have you brought any
gift for farmers of Ra-
jasthan? Dy LoP Rajen-
dra Rathore said that he
has come to Raj, where
“Congress todo yatra”
is going on and he is un-
able to do anything.
First India Bureau
Jhalawar: MP Dushy-
ant Singh said
that former CM
Vasundhara Ra-
je’s relationship
with Jhalawar is
not of fear but of
feelings. She has
always developed this
area by taking 36 com-
munities along. He was
reacting to PCC Chief
Govind Singh Dotasra’s
remark that despite
fear of Raje, Rahul Gan-
dhi was given a grand
welcome in Jhalawar.
“Those who couldn’t
connect two hearts in
Raj, today they are pre-
tending to connect
India. The ex-CM
in her political life
has always worked
to connect people’s
hearts  Jhalawar
is a proof of that.
Under her able leader-
ship, I myself am an MP
for 4th time. This con-
tinuous victory is not
because of fear, but
with the help of former
CM’s emotional attach-
ment with the work-
ers,” he said.
It is the duty of the media to tell what has happened. RaGa is
marching with a positive thought, it is a positive Yatra  if you
are not showing this Yatra, you are not fulfilling your duty,” CM says
“Don’t blame them Ashokji.They too
have high command,” says Jairam
Ramesh, mollifying CM Gehlot’s attack
Will question
RaGa on 18 Raj
issues: Dr Poonia
‘Raje shares emotional
connect with Jhalawar’
My charge is
that the media
has boycotted
the Yatra. Lakhs of peo-
ple are joining it. But
the national media is
not supporting it. It
means they have noth-
ing to do with social
cause for which media
exists. It is the fourth
pillar, it has its own im-
portance.

RAGHUVEER MEENA GETS HURT
People of...
Why did the BJP re-
move Mother Sita from
this slogan? Why BJP
and RSS never say Jai
Siyaram. They will
have to say Jai Siyaram.
They cannot insult
Mother Sita. Gandhiji
had said ‘Hey Ram’
while being shot. It
meant the thinking and
feeling of Lord Rama. It
was a way of life. He
didn’t hate anybody.
Such was the feeling of
Lord Rama. RSS forgot
this slogan too. BJP
doesn’t accept the spirit
of Lord Ram. They are
torturing the farmers.
Making youth unem-
ployed. Ram had talked
about love and brother-
hood,” Rahul said.
The former Congress
president told Congress
workers that whenever
you meet BJP people,
tell them to first say Hey
Ram and then say Jai
Siyaram.

any friends
and col-
l e a g u e s
frequently
ask me
what I will
do after my
retirement
from the
Indian Forest Service.
There have also been ques-
tions about the fundamen-
tal priorities before super-
annuation. I have, almost
always, evaded these ques-
tions. Here, I address these
now.
It shouldn’t be a sur-
prise that there are many
people who can do many
things equally proficient-
ly. They can be farmers,
teachers, managers, regu-
lators, scientists, journal-
ists, authors, drug devel-
opers, and many more. To
be extraordinary, however,
they must cover a little ex-
tra beyond those ordinary
miles. Why and how such
a feat materialises is com-
plicated to communicate
in words. You have to live
and work with them to dis-
cern the novel insights of
their journey. On the face
of it, the struggle is nei-
ther surprising nor a se-
cret. It takes a fire perpet-
ually burning within. It
takes every minute of a
life well invested. It re-
quires tossing away a
mindset of narrow em-
phasis on income or
wealth. Indeed, human
flourishing demands
much more and provides
more abundantly than our
imagination. It takes great
mental and physical
health. It embodies a ro-
bust meaning and durable
purpose, character and
virtue, and resilient social
relationships. It requires
wisdom that in turn yields
happiness, life satisfac-
tion and well-being.
As with everyone else, I
would continue to grow
wisdom—a substantial de-
terminant of human
flourishing. This wisdom
is expected to continue to
keep me happy because
wisdom is the mother of
happiness. Wisdom is a
holistic, multidimension-
al personality trait associ-
ated with greater well-be-
ing, satisfaction with life,
and overall better health
and happiness. I have dis-
covered and followed sev-
eral mechanisms to be-
come wiser. First, pro-so-
cial behaviors, empathy,
compassion, altruism, and
a sense of fairness to all.
Second, emotional regula-
tion, self-control and be-
ing oneself even when
provoked. Third, self-re-
flection, personal insights,
and learning. Fourth, ac-
ceptance of divergent per-
spectives and tolerance of
different view-point. Fifth
is decisiveness or the abil-
ity to make timely and ef-
fective decisions even un-
der uncertainty. Sixth, a
general knowledge of life
and social decision-mak-
ing, and finally, a mindset
that embraces spirituality
in daily life. I have also be-
lieved very strongly, and
continue to act accord-
ingly, that nothing is un-
achievable for those who
have scholarship, thought-
fulness, wisdom, atten-
tiveness, diligence and ac-
tion. I continue to be deep-
ly aware of the fact that
really wise people rarely
get drunk with wisdom!
Pseudo-wise is another
lot. In a nutshell, this
mindset weighs a few
smiles much more than
millions of dollars in the
pocket. This has made me
what I am. This has given
me what I have.
I am someone who was
born in a remote village
nestled amidst rivers and
hills. Obviously, it re-
quired learning survival
strategies to face the va-
garies and beauty of the
inhospitable landscape.
One must be a farmer, a
labourer, or an ordinary
human being willing to
acquire traditional skills
for survival. No wonder
then, given the necessity, I
can do farming in my
farmlands. I can construct
a village pond and grow
water chestnuts for liveli-
hoods. I can also help you
cross a rapidly flowing
river in the boat that I
built. I can also raise a
mango orchard for the
benefit of generations of
humans, birds, insects
and other life forms. I
could construct a mud
house and practice animal
husbandry with equal
ease. I can do a lot more,
not because I am willing to
learn everything afresh
but because I have already
done all these to survive in
my village before I left for
wilder grounds. All along,
I have never forgotten that
knowledge is great but do-
ing is greater still.
In another parallel,
soon after my retirement
in May 2023, I can teach to
facilitate learning of
Ayurveda that I learnt be-
fore the age of 18. I can
also take on teaching Ya-
jurveda chanting to a
brand-new generation of
youth. Teaching forestry,
environmental govern-
ance and sustainability
science at some of the
best-known institutions
worldwide is always avail-
able to me. Again, all this
will be possible not be-
cause I am willing to learn
afresh, but because I have
already done that by tak-
ing numerous detours
from the Indian forest ser-
vice.
I have been a professor
earlier, and even today I
continue to be a visiting
professor at the National
Institute of Ayurveda. I
would be happy to take on
a few more such assign-
ments from among many
that I am invited to. It is
this group of activities
where one can raise the
skills of someone else to
bring a smile and to make
them more worthwhile to
society.
No gift is greater than
the gift of knowledge! I
would always love to work
as a scientist once again in
the world’s best institu-
tions working on forest
and livelihoods, forest gov-
ernance, and environmen-
tal regulations. Doing
work on the ground as
well as producing new
knowledge based on expe-
rience and science contin-
ues to be my passion. I can
also work as a journalist
in a cutting-edge media
house—print, electronic,
and social included. Jour-
nalism has been my first
job way back in 1975 or so!
As a forester, I can help
protect, manage, restore
and rewild forests and pro-
tected areas. It is possible
because this beautiful pro-
cess of learning and con-
tribution has been a major
part of my life. Apart from
improving the health of
the ecosystems, I can also
facilitate the improve-
ment of the health of peo-
ple by designing drugs and
providing preventive
strategies that can save
humanity from some of
the worst ailments. Again,
I will not need to learn the
whole process all over
again. I have already done
that parallel to numerous
other activities that I not-
ed here.
I would be happy to im-
prove the environmental
governance, environmen-
tal compliance, and regu-
latory environment with-
in any corporate house
such that they are able to
adhere to all the manda-
tory regulations required
to have complied, plus nu-
merous proactive steps
that can provide an edge to
the business over competi-
tors.
Let us now move on to
priorities. After a satisfy-
ing career in various posi-
tions in the Indian Forest
Service, the five priorities,
apart from routine works,
set soon after taking on as
the Principle Chief Con-
servator of Forests (Head
of Forest Force) are now
getting accomplished.
One, with a large num-
ber of posts vacant, Forest
Department was working
with almost half the num-
ber of officials in the field.
We have recruited and will
now have all the posts
filled to work full throttle
for the next decade. Two,
field staff remained de-
prived of their promotions
for 3-4 years for a variety
of reasons. The process
has been completed, except
for one rank that is soon
going to be accomplished.
Three, through new exter-
nally aided projects, we
will have a resource of 3600
to 4500 crore rupees to in-
vest in the protection of
forests, wildlife and biodi-
versity, mitigation and ad-
aptation to climate change,
and improvement of liveli-
hoods of the local commu-
nities. Four, good imple-
mentation is a knowledge-
intensive journey that re-
quires a robust evidence
base. We have generated
and provided cutting-edge
scientific and experiential
knowledge for restoration
and rewilding.
Implemented is now on
throughout the State. At
least 10 new conservation
reserves, another leopard
reserve, and one new tiger
reserve have become a real-
ity
. Another Tiger Reserve
may soon become a reality
.
Thus, Forest Department
will have forest force, re-
sources and knowledge to
work over the next 10 years
that coincide with the UN
Decade on Ecosystem Res-
toration (2021-2030). The
fifth priority remains to be
realized, but there are six
months to concentrate on.
Hopefully
, with the support
of the Government of Ra-
jasthan, and facilitation by
colleagues in the Govern-
ment and Forest Depart-
ment, we should be able to
resolve several long-pend-
ing legitimate demands of
staff and officials in the
field. This is what I love to
call flourishing beyond
woods and words. We shall
meet again!

Editor-In-Chief: Dr Jagdeesh Chandra, Editor: Anita Hada Sangwan responsible for selection of news under the PRB Act UNTOLD STORIES OF PM MODI - PART 21 ‘MODI HAI TO MUMKIN HAI…’ he narrator shares his vari- ous experiences with Naren- dra Modi and how every inter- action with the PM left him enlightened and wiser. He be- lieves that Modiji has the acu- men of an industrialist and his ideas are truly transfor- mational and futuristic. When I met him for the first time, he was very direct in telling me, “No, you won’t ex- pand your business in Vapi. You will do it in Kutch.” It was 2002 and the devastating memoriesof Bhujearthquake were as alive as if it was yes- terday . I was in disbelief of what Modiji had just said. I replied, “Sir, Kutch is still reeling under the tremors of the quake. There is no water, electricity , roads. How can we establish a textile plant in such a place?” Modiji said “No Goenkaji. You do not know the strength of Kutch. The land in Kutch has the power to yield a dollar for a rupee worth of investment you make!” He continued, in a very matter of fact tone “You are a businessman Goenkaji and I am a politician. But this suggestion to build Kutch is personal. And rest assured, whatever support you need, I will facilitate that.” Well, any industrialist would have considered the decision to enter Kutch over and again at that point. But I gathered courage which was ultimately built on the tre- mendous faith I have on Modiji. His suggestion to me was so genuine, that it touched a chord in my heart. His words were so replete with confidence, that I was sure that this was not the voice of politics, it was indeed the voice of his mann. We ex- ported the first towel in 9 months. We managed water via a 300km pipeline from Narmada. We made available electricity and roads. Today we have more than 25,000 em- ployees. We also invested Rs 25,000 crore. Well, at that time, it was difficult for anyone to think of investing in Kutch. But Kutch is exactly from where we started to grow. The Welspun Group had definite- ly started out on its road to success from Kutch. From then, I got the oppor- tunity to travel with Modiji and got to know him closely as one of the most genuine persons one can ever know. I was part of the delegations that visited Australia, China and what I realized during these interactions with Modiji was that he had a completely unique perspec- tive about everything. He looks at everything in a way nobody does! His level of in- quisitiveness is unparalleled. After his visit to the solar park in China, he ensured that solar power in India too witnessed an enormous growth. In 2006-07, he got the solar policy for the first time in India. His vision was su- premely ambitious. His vi- sion of providing energy at Rs 19 per unit and giving Rs 14 per unit on an average in a period of 15 years came at a time when people knew very little about solar power. No one was prepared to believe in it! Modiji was convinced that solar energy was the greatest power alternative in India which could help us re- duce our dependence on oil and gas. He would always talk of renewables! He would en- vision panels over the Nar- mada canal, and then put up a technical question to me “How do you think this will benefit us?” I would say “Sir we will save on land, farmers will get electricity.” “No!” Modiji would correct me. The biggest advantage is that ef- ficiency would go up by 2%. When water flows below the panel, it has a cooling effect. The panel works better.” Thus, going into the minutest detail of everything is a hall- mark of Narendra Modi. Let me tell you, when we will look back from 2030, we will see that it was this man’s vision to make India the larg- est in renewable energy . And we are sure to be somewhere, whether we talk about hydro- gen, ammonia, or solar. India is going to be absolutely self- reliant. This dream which was envisioned in 2006-07 will becomearealityby2030.India is already a global example now in the renewables sector. As far as I am concerned, he was very sure what he wanted from me. “I want 5 Fs. I don’t want just a cotton ex- porter. I don’t want yarn. I want Farms; from farms I want Farming; from farming I want Factories. From facto- ries I want to tap into Fash- ion; and from fashion I want Foreign exchange” he would say. So he wanted maximum value-addition in India, job creation, and that the GoI should get foreign exchange. He was the CM then and came up with Vibrant Guja- rat in 2007-08. The entire world was reeling under the great recession sparked by the crash of the Lehman Brothers. But he came up with Vibrant Gujarat. I met him and said “Sir, we must defer Vibrant.” He said “What do you say Goenkaji? Now is the opportunity.” I said “No investor is going to turn up. The world has taken an economic downturn.” But Modiji was determined. Be- ing at the helm of leadership in the state, he just said noth- ing doing. There is an oppor- tunity here as well. ThusModijiisvision,deter- mination and leadership dif- fused together. When I met him recently, he spoke about changing the ship industry, how shipping could incorpo- rate e-shipping, how we could use wind turbines and gener- ate hydrogen from water and use the energy to run ships! Nowagain,thisisallaboutthe vision of this extraordinary gentleman,thedreamsthathe has for India. These are all transformational, futuristic ideas. And he is making them a reality . They are happening in our country now. Take Start-upIndia,StandUpIndia, child education, focus on the girl child, for example. The way he mingles with children, his exuberance, warmth and playfulness is worth admir- ing. He has given all the press- ing issues of India a concrete form and transformed them into revolutionary ideas. Who would not be inspired by such leadership? TO BE CONTINUED... T ‘MODIJI IS ONE OF THE MOST GENUINE PERSONS ONE CAN EVER KNOW, MEET’ F rom then, I got the opportunity to travel with Modiji and got to know him closely as one of the most genuine persons one can ever know. I was part of the delegations that visited Australia, China and what I realized during these interactions with Modiji was that he had a completely unique perspective about everything. He looks at everything in a way nobody does! His level of inquisitiveness is unparalleled. PM MODI: THE MAN WHO HAS DREAMT THE INDIAN DREAM! COMPILED AND EDITED BY SHASHIKANT SHARMA AND SHWETA SHARMA This is all about the vision of this extraordinary gentleman, the dreams that Modiji has for India. These are all transformational, futuristic ideas. And he is making them a reality. They are happening in our country now.

This is the second such petition it has heard in the last two months. A bench asked the petitioner, “What kind of PIL is this?” What will be the next course of action of RJD and Left leaders? Shamsher Singh New Delhi: The Left parties had opposed the BharatJodoYatraof the Congress in Kerala. Since in Kerala there is a one-on-one contest be- tween the two parties and both the parties openly fight against each other, there was no question of the leaders of the Communist par- ties joining Rahul Gan- dhi’s visit there. But it is not known what will be the stand of the commu- nist parties going for- ward. Keep in mind that there is good co-opera- tion between the Con- gress and the Commu- nist parties and in West Bengal both fought the elections in coordina- tion.InKerala,theparty usually runs according to Prakash Karat, but elsewhere Sitaram Yechury has more pow- er and Rahul Gandhi has a very good relation- ship with Yechury . Only then it is being specu- lated that communist leaders may also partici- pate in the two-month- long yatra. It is being expressed that if the leaders of Rashtriya Janata Dal and Janata Dal U, the al- lies of the Congress in Bihar, join the Bharat Jodo Yatra, then along with them the leaders of the communist parties can also be a part of the yatra. CPI, CPM and CPIML are part of all three Grand Alliance in Bihar. Although the MLAsof thesethreepar- ties are not part of the government, they have extended outside sup- port to the government. That’s why it is being speculated that the lead- ers of the parties of the Grand Alliance may at- tend the Congress rally .

Aishwary Pradhan Jaipur: Targeting Cong, BJP State Presi- dent Dr Satish Poonia said, “I will ask 18 ques- tions to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in 18 days regarding issues of public interest in Raj. The first one is that have you brought any gift for farmers of Ra- jasthan? Dy LoP Rajen- dra Rathore said that he has come to Raj, where “Congress todo yatra” is going on and he is un- able to do anything. First India Bureau Jhalawar: MP Dushy- ant Singh said that former CM Vasundhara Ra- je’s relationship with Jhalawar is not of fear but of feelings. She has always developed this area by taking 36 com- munities along. He was reacting to PCC Chief Govind Singh Dotasra’s remark that despite fear of Raje, Rahul Gan- dhi was given a grand welcome in Jhalawar. “Those who couldn’t connect two hearts in Raj, today they are pre- tending to connect India. The ex-CM in her political life has always worked to connect people’s hearts Jhalawar is a proof of that. Under her able leader- ship, I myself am an MP for 4th time. This con- tinuous victory is not because of fear, but with the help of former CM’s emotional attach- ment with the work- ers,” he said. It is the duty of the media to tell what has happened. RaGa is marching with a positive thought, it is a positive Yatra if you are not showing this Yatra, you are not fulfilling your duty,” CM says “Don’t blame them Ashokji.They too have high command,” says Jairam Ramesh, mollifying CM Gehlot’s attack Will question RaGa on 18 Raj issues: Dr Poonia ‘Raje shares emotional connect with Jhalawar’ My charge is that the media has boycotted the Yatra. Lakhs of peo- ple are joining it. But the national media is not supporting it. It means they have noth- ing to do with social cause for which media exists. It is the fourth pillar, it has its own im- portance. —Ashok Gehlot, Chief Minister RAGHUVEER MEENA GETS HURT People of... Why did the BJP re- move Mother Sita from this slogan? Why BJP and RSS never say Jai Siyaram. They will have to say Jai Siyaram. They cannot insult Mother Sita. Gandhiji had said ‘Hey Ram’ while being shot. It meant the thinking and feeling of Lord Rama. It was a way of life. He didn’t hate anybody. Such was the feeling of Lord Rama. RSS forgot this slogan too. BJP doesn’t accept the spirit of Lord Ram. They are torturing the farmers. Making youth unem- ployed. Ram had talked about love and brother- hood,” Rahul said. The former Congress president told Congress workers that whenever you meet BJP people, tell them to first say Hey Ram and then say Jai Siyaram.

There have also been ques- tions about the fundamen- tal priorities before super- annuation. I have, almost always, evaded these ques- tions. Here, I address these now. It shouldn’t be a sur- prise that there are many people who can do many things equally proficient- ly. They can be farmers, teachers, managers, regu- lators, scientists, journal- ists, authors, drug devel- opers, and many more. To be extraordinary, however, they must cover a little ex- tra beyond those ordinary miles. Why and how such a feat materialises is com- plicated to communicate in words. You have to live and work with them to dis- cern the novel insights of their journey. On the face of it, the struggle is nei- ther surprising nor a se- cret. It takes a fire perpet- ually burning within. It takes every minute of a life well invested. It re- quires tossing away a mindset of narrow em- phasis on income or wealth. Indeed, human flourishing demands much more and provides more abundantly than our imagination. It takes great mental and physical health. It embodies a ro- bust meaning and durable purpose, character and virtue, and resilient social relationships. It requires wisdom that in turn yields happiness, life satisfac- tion and well-being. As with everyone else, I would continue to grow wisdom—a substantial de- terminant of human flourishing. This wisdom is expected to continue to keep me happy because wisdom is the mother of happiness. Wisdom is a holistic, multidimension- al personality trait associ- ated with greater well-be- ing, satisfaction with life, and overall better health and happiness. I have dis- covered and followed sev- eral mechanisms to be- come wiser. First, pro-so- cial behaviors, empathy, compassion, altruism, and a sense of fairness to all. Second, emotional regula- tion, self-control and be- ing oneself even when provoked. Third, self-re- flection, personal insights, and learning. Fourth, ac- ceptance of divergent per- spectives and tolerance of different view-point. Fifth is decisiveness or the abil- ity to make timely and ef- fective decisions even un- der uncertainty. Sixth, a general knowledge of life and social decision-mak- ing, and finally, a mindset that embraces spirituality in daily life. I have also be- lieved very strongly, and continue to act accord- ingly, that nothing is un- achievable for those who have scholarship, thought- fulness, wisdom, atten- tiveness, diligence and ac- tion. I continue to be deep- ly aware of the fact that really wise people rarely get drunk with wisdom! Pseudo-wise is another lot. In a nutshell, this mindset weighs a few smiles much more than millions of dollars in the pocket. This has made me what I am. This has given me what I have. I am someone who was born in a remote village nestled amidst rivers and hills. Obviously, it re- quired learning survival strategies to face the va- garies and beauty of the inhospitable landscape. One must be a farmer, a labourer, or an ordinary human being willing to acquire traditional skills for survival. No wonder then, given the necessity, I can do farming in my farmlands. I can construct a village pond and grow water chestnuts for liveli- hoods. I can also help you cross a rapidly flowing river in the boat that I built. I can also raise a mango orchard for the benefit of generations of humans, birds, insects and other life forms. I could construct a mud house and practice animal husbandry with equal ease. I can do a lot more, not because I am willing to learn everything afresh but because I have already done all these to survive in my village before I left for wilder grounds. All along, I have never forgotten that knowledge is great but do- ing is greater still. In another parallel, soon after my retirement in May 2023, I can teach to facilitate learning of Ayurveda that I learnt be- fore the age of 18. I can also take on teaching Ya- jurveda chanting to a brand-new generation of youth. Teaching forestry, environmental govern- ance and sustainability science at some of the best-known institutions worldwide is always avail- able to me. Again, all this will be possible not be- cause I am willing to learn afresh, but because I have already done that by tak- ing numerous detours from the Indian forest ser- vice. I have been a professor earlier, and even today I continue to be a visiting professor at the National Institute of Ayurveda. I would be happy to take on a few more such assign- ments from among many that I am invited to. It is this group of activities where one can raise the skills of someone else to bring a smile and to make them more worthwhile to society. No gift is greater than the gift of knowledge! I would always love to work as a scientist once again in the world’s best institu- tions working on forest and livelihoods, forest gov- ernance, and environmen- tal regulations. Doing work on the ground as well as producing new knowledge based on expe- rience and science contin- ues to be my passion. I can also work as a journalist in a cutting-edge media house—print, electronic, and social included. Jour- nalism has been my first job way back in 1975 or so! As a forester, I can help protect, manage, restore and rewild forests and pro- tected areas. It is possible because this beautiful pro- cess of learning and con- tribution has been a major part of my life. Apart from improving the health of the ecosystems, I can also facilitate the improve- ment of the health of peo- ple by designing drugs and providing preventive strategies that can save humanity from some of the worst ailments. Again, I will not need to learn the whole process all over again. I have already done that parallel to numerous other activities that I not- ed here. I would be happy to im- prove the environmental governance, environmen- tal compliance, and regu- latory environment with- in any corporate house such that they are able to adhere to all the manda- tory regulations required to have complied, plus nu- merous proactive steps that can provide an edge to the business over competi- tors. Let us now move on to priorities. After a satisfy- ing career in various posi- tions in the Indian Forest Service, the five priorities, apart from routine works, set soon after taking on as the Principle Chief Con- servator of Forests (Head of Forest Force) are now getting accomplished. One, with a large num- ber of posts vacant, Forest Department was working with almost half the num- ber of officials in the field. We have recruited and will now have all the posts filled to work full throttle for the next decade. Two, field staff remained de- prived of their promotions for 3-4 years for a variety of reasons. The process has been completed, except for one rank that is soon going to be accomplished. Three, through new exter- nally aided projects, we will have a resource of 3600 to 4500 crore rupees to in- vest in the protection of forests, wildlife and biodi- versity, mitigation and ad- aptation to climate change, and improvement of liveli- hoods of the local commu- nities. Four, good imple- mentation is a knowledge- intensive journey that re- quires a robust evidence base. We have generated and provided cutting-edge scientific and experiential knowledge for restoration and rewilding. Implemented is now on throughout the State. At least 10 new conservation reserves, another leopard reserve, and one new tiger reserve have become a real- ity . Another Tiger Reserve may soon become a reality . Thus, Forest Department will have forest force, re- sources and knowledge to work over the next 10 years that coincide with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Res- toration (2021-2030). The fifth priority remains to be realized, but there are six months to concentrate on. Hopefully , with the support of the Government of Ra- jasthan, and facilitation by colleagues in the Govern- ment and Forest Depart- ment, we should be able to resolve several long-pend- ing legitimate demands of staff and officials in the field. This is what I love to call flourishing beyond woods and words. We shall meet again! FLOURISHING BEYOND FLOURISHING BEYOND WOODS AND WORDS!
