remember when the first
investors’ summit was
held in 2003, it was greet-
edwithlotsofcriticismaseveryone
thought no one was going to attend
the event or invest in the state at the
time of global downturn. Also, it
was soon after the Kutch earth-
quake and people had very little
expectations from Gujarat. The
event was held on a much smaller
scale and the venue was Tagore
Hall, which had a capacity to seat
not more than 700-800 people.
When we attended the event, we
found all the front rows were oc-
cupied by government officials or
political leaders and many of the
industrialists or their representa-
tives had to keep standing. Modi ji
too must have observed this anom-
aly, as was proved later. When the
next summit was held, at a much
granderscalethistime,andrechris-
tened as Vibrant Gujarat Summit,
things were completely restruc-
tured under Modi ji’s guidance.All
thelacunaeofthefirstsummitwere
weeded out efficiently and there
was no room left for any grudge or
complaint from any quarter. One of
the trademarks of Modi’s way of
working is to innovate and make
his initiatives truly world-class. He
made it a point to choose a larger
space this time where there would
beproperseatingarrangements.He
made it clear to the officials that it
wasanindustryfunctionratherthan
a government event and preference
must be given to industrialists. He
also suggested adding components
to impress foreign delegates ac-
cording to their preferences so that
they found the right indices to in-
vest in the state. Hence, the second
Vibrant Gujarat had a lot of struc-
tured programmes and after that,
this continued during the succeed-
ing summits. As a result, Vibrant
Gujarat has today reached unprec-
edented heights.

‘MODI HAI TO MUMKIN HAI…’ UNTOLD STORIES OF PM MODI — PART 88
y first interaction with
PM Modi sir was during
Patel run in Delhi. We
shared the stage together. So, af-
ter the event he asked me many
things and during the conversa-
tion I conveyed to him the differ-
ent problems of athletes in the
country. To this, the PM respond-
ed immediately and called his PA,
urging me to explain the things to
that person so that action could be
taken up immediately. I was sur-
prised that the PMO itself took
cognizance of our issues and so
promptly took steps to solve
them. I also found for the first
time that Modi ji was deeply in-
terested in sports and knew about
every athlete and his/her perfor-
mance. I came to know that be-
fore every major championship,
the PM himself calls up the ath-
lete/athletes concerned to moti-
vate them and wish them the best
for the event, and big send-offs
are organised regularly. Even af-
ter every championship we are
celebrating each victory in a big
way due to the personal initiative
of the PM, which was never the
way earlier. And more than that,
because of the interest and in-
volvement of the PM, there has
been a lot of change in our system
over these years of the Modi gov-
ernment. Lot of good infrastruc-
ture is coming up and competitive
events are being organised even
at the grassroots level in remote
areas to bring out hidden talents
to the mainstream. This is a major
boost for the country’s sports
prospects. All athletes are happy
because we have never seen such
aggressive branding and promo-
tion of sports in India before. This
momentum that has been created
by the PM will continue and go a
long way in taking the country
forward in this sphere. The sup-
port we are getting now from the
system is unprecedented. The PM
takes personal interest in all our
affairs, even our family’s well-
being, and talks to us like a friend
so that we feel confident and rest
assured that we don’t have any
trouble in perusing our profes-
sions with utmost dedication and
diligence, since the prime minis-
ter of the country is behind us
with all his support.
remember, when Pramod
Mahajan ji passed away
and I was in Dadar for his
funeral, I met Modi ji for the first
time. There were several minis-
ters of the Central government in
attendance at the solemn occa-
sion. Modi ji was the Chief Min-
ister of Gujarat at that time. A
small makeshift stage was rigged
up at the venue where the minis-
ters and CMs were to be seated.
The front rows were reserved for
the Union ministers, CMs and
senior leaders of the BJP, while
the seats for the MPs, including
me, and other lesser VIPs were
behind them. I was a young MP,
all of 27 years, elected to the Par-
liament for the first time. Under-
standably, very few people knew
me or recognised me. Modi ji was
seated just in front of me…the
distance between his chair and
mine was minimal.As a courtesy,
I stood up and greeted him with
folded hands. I saw him sitting
and then cleaning his eyeglasses.
Soon after that, he turned around
and said, ‘Milind bhai, how are
you?’ I was shocked and sur-
prised to realise that he knew who
I was. Then he asked me whether
the place we were in at that time
fell under my constituency or my
neighbouring constituency. So, I
instantly felt he was very aware
of things happening not just
around him but in the field of
geo-politics beyond his immedi-
ate realm of affairs too and it
came to me that he was a man
with his ears very much to the
ground. I also realised in my sub-
sequent meetings with him that
he recognises you, remembers
you and puts the right name to
your face, which is very neces-
sary in public life and the hall-
mark of great leadership. What is
a matter of great joy for our fam-
ily is that when Modi ji went to
Houston to campaign for Donald
Trump and he addressed the In-
dian diaspora at the NRG stadium
there, at that time there was a
tweet by him that said that he was
missing his friend Murli Deora ji
at this time who had took a lot of
effort to strengthen ties between
India and the US. Murli bhai must
be very proud of this. He said,
when Modi ji is respected world-
wide, it is not just Modi’s triumph
but the triumph of India. Through
the PM, the entire 140 crore peo-
ple of India are getting that re-
spect. My friend Murli Deora
must be very proud of all the hard
work he did to improve the rela-
tions between the two countries,
Modi ji said. This was a moment
of pride for us in the family as
well as in the party and in our
supporters. We realised that Modi
ji has the ability to rise to the oc-
casion and rise above party lines
to give credit to people where
they merit it, for his larger focus
remains steadfast on what is good
for the country and humanity.
s soon as I Joined the BJP,
I got the opportunity to
meet PM Modi ji on the
stage. He gave a speech on the oc-
casion.Iwasobserving,andyouall
mustbeknowingthatModijiestab-
lishesaninstantbondwiththeaudi-
ence when he speaks. The human
connect is impeccable. He feels the
pulse of the people and knows ex-
actlywhattosaytothem.Heknows
how to connect with the audience
and involve them. This is the great-
est attribute of a leader who can
connect with his people. See, I am
also an actor.And for a long time at
that.We actors also tend to develop
an understanding of the people we
meet and talk to and know if they
are genuine and original in their
thought,approachandintentionsor
fake. Modi sir is so natural. He is
naturally affable. While we were
leaving the state, he called me and
said, Mithun da, I want to speak
with you. I was quite surprised.
Taking out time from his busy
schedule,hesatwithmeforover10
minutes. And in those 10 minutes,
he explained to me so many things,
guiding me through the complex
alleys of politics enumerating what
I should do and what I shouldn’t.
Then he called his secretary and
asked him to provide his personal
number to me. Simultaneously, he
also advised me to call him up di-
rectly without hesitation whenever
I felt the need. I was overwhelmed
by his gesture. He left after the
event, but those 10 minutes were
charismatic and remain etched in
my mind forever. It is not just be-
cause he was the PM talking to me
personally in a friendly manner but
because of his responsiveness and
his natural behaviour, which creat-
ed an impact on me.The maximum
time, if I remember correctly, he
ever took to respond to me is 23
minutes. Once I sent him a text
message and he was in a different
timezone,perhapsinGermany,and
he took that much time to respond.
Even if he is busy at a time, he
wouldusuallyreply,saying‘tomor-
row’or give another time. His nor-
mal turnaround time is not more
than 10-15 minutes. Who am I in
the party? I may be a known actor,
but in the party, I am nothing, just a
karyakarta. Why would the PM be
concerned about me? But such is
Modi sir’s nature. When he has
asked me to consult in case of any
problem and committed to help me
out, he would stand by it, no matter
what.That’sthekindofresponsive-
nessthatbehovesagreatleader.Not
just me, he will never reply to any-
one with vague statements like
‘Let’ssee’or‘Letmecheck’.Ikeep
away from such people because I
know they never ‘see’. Modi sir is
one who will straightaway call that
person in need and tell him, ‘Meet
me.Wewillsortit.’Suchistheman,

‘MODI HAI TO MUMKIN HAI…’ UNTOLD STORIES OF PM MODI — PART 87
he second year of Sangh Siksha Varg
was being held at Agroha in Haryana’s
Hisar. It was in June 1992. Narendra
Modi ji was also present at the event and he took
a lecture session there. At the end he asked the
delegates that if they had something to ask or
discuss with him, they could do so. At that time
I felt like asking
a question that
had cropped in
my mind. I
asked him, it is
very hot here
but why are you
wearing two
vests? To this
Narendra ji said,
who told you
so? No, I am not
wearing two.
But I said, yes
you are wearing
two. Then he
asked, how did
you come to know? I told him the strap which
was visible on the sides of his shoulders showed
two of them, one under the other. To this he then
explained the reason to me. He said, see I wear
a dhoti and ride a bicycle. That is my life. Now
often times the end of the dhoti gets tied to the
chain of the cycle and gets torn. I try to protect
it as best as I can, yet there is always a possibil-
ity of an end of my dhoti getting entangled in
the chain. Thus, when it is torn, there is no point
wearing it anymore. It is then that I fold it, make
it double and get a vest stitched with the same.
Now this vest has some holes in it but it will
serve for sometime more. Then I will not throw
it away. I will use it to clean my shoes, he said.
I was astonished to hear all this. Sundar Singh
Bhandari ji was present there during the conver-
sation. He then asked him, but why do you do
this dhoti to vest thing? Here Modi ji said, do
you know, there are lakhs of people in the coun-
try who don’t have a piece of cloth on their
body. We should make good use of what soci-
ety has given us, instead of unnecessary wast-
age. On that day I realised that a person who has
such high thoughts for the country and society,
will do great for the country once the time
comes.
nce I suggested to Modi ji that I wanted
to publish another book that would be
on the manifesto of the BJP for that
year’s elections. I had seriously thought that
such a book was needed to deliver to the people
the manifestos salience in greater detail. But to
my surprise,
Modi ji outright
dismissed the
idea as unfruit-
ful. He told me,
the explanation
of the party
manifesto won’t
have any deep
impact on the
people. They
will gloss over
it and put it
aside. He rather
gave me a to-
tally different
perspective. He
said, if you want to publish something, take up
issues that affect people. For instance, publish
a book on the water amenities in different ar-
eas and then, compare it with the perspectives
of different political parties
on the same issue and how
they are going to solve it or
what they have done on it.
Tell people how different
parties are approaching the
same issue. That will really
help people understand what
actually we are doing for
them differently. It struck me
as a novelty that would work.
I realised instantly that a
manifesto is a regular affair
that every party brings out. It
was Modi ji’s innovative idea
of connecting it to issues of
the common man and how
other parties were doing on
them that really worked in
the end.
nce I got a call from the
president of the Umiya
Mata temple. He said you
hold big government programmes
all the time. If possible, also help
us organise an upcoming event of
Umiya Mata ji in our community. I
assured him of looking into the
matter and trying my best and sub-
sequently brought the matter to the
attention of Modi ji. Modi ji imme-
diately said, it is a social work for
the uplift of the community and
society and we must help them. So,
I took upon the responsibility and
started planning. We decided to or-
ganise yagnas and darshans for the
five days of the event along with
some activities for the uplift of the
community like rozgaar mela (em-
ployment fair), education seminar,
exhibitions etc. We took the plan to
CM Modi for a presentation. The
temple committee members, trus-
tees etc. were present there. I
showed him the plan on my laptop.
He saw the whole presentation with
rapt attention and then said at the
end, people in your community are
farmers. Kadwa Patidars have land
holdings and they do farming on
them. People may not listen to me
or you but they will certainly listen
to the goddess. To address global
warming and water scarcity issues,
try to have the devotees take a
pledge in front of the goddess that
if one has 10-acre land, at least on
one or two acres he would use drip
irrigation technique or deploy
sprinklers. You won’t believe, as
we took forward the initiative sug-
gested by the Chief Minister, no
less than 1.5 lakh farmers took the
pledge in front of the goddess in
those five days of the event and
filled out a form to adopt drip irri-
gation technology.

Narendra Modi’s
offbeat perspective
on manifesto
Narendra Modi ji’s unique initiative to save water
wing to his empa-
thetic nature, de-
spite his demand-
ing schedule, PM Modi
stays connected to those he
knows and remains in-
formed about their personal
problems. I first met him
when he was the CM of Gu-
jarat. Even at the first meet-
ing, his vibe was so friendly
that I felt I was talking to
some close family member
of mine. He struck to us as
a very humble, down-to-
earth person and most im-
portantly very casual in his
conversation, shorn of all
the airs of being the CM of
a state. He made us feel that
he was one of us and not a
VIP. Then came his stupen-
dous victory in 2014 that
catapulted him into a global
leader. I was going through
a tough phase of lots of per-
sonal problems in my life
but still, I felt deep inside
that I must go and congratu-
late him on becoming the
PM of the country as I was
genuinely happy for him.
When I went to meet him I
was falling short of words.
Narendra bhai was crowded
by people around him. But
just as he saw me, he rushed
to my side and conversed
with me privately, leaving
everything and everyone
behind. And the first ques-
tion he asked me was if the
problems in my family had
been sorted. I was literally
in tears that a person, de-
spite just reaching the sky,
was still so grounded that
he remembered me, and my
family issues and was con-
cerned about them. This
enhanced my respect for
him and I told him you are
really my elder brother to
have asked me of my wel-
fare with such genuine con-
cern. You will be the first
person to know once I am
out of the difficulties. He
takes care of everyone, like
his very own, no matter
how small the person is.
This only goes to show he
is a man of a pure heart.

‘MODI HAI TO MUMKIN HAI…’ UNTOLD STORIES OF PM MODI — PART 86
remember first meet-
inghonourableNaren-
dra Modi ji way back
in 2012. He was still serving as
the chief minister of Gujarat
then. I was taken there (to
Ahmedabad) by someone for a
discussion with him on a pro-
posed film city project in the
state capital. I was told that I
would need to wait outside at
the CM’s office before getting
entry to his chamber and also
warned that the CM won’t be
able to give much time as there
was an immense workload and
he was super busy. Surpris-
ingly, when I was at his office,
we didn’t even have to wait
outside and Modi ji called us in
immediately. And unbelieva-
bly, despite all that I had heard,
he was so friendly and homely
with us that I felt I was chatting
up with some long-time bhidu
(friend). The conversations
were very normal and it never
seemed to me we were talking
to the chief minister, he was so
easygoing and affable.Then he
showed us a book on Rann of
Kutch and suggested it was an
ideal location for film shoot-
ings and he wanted to boost its
prospects. In between he kept
talking about how I was doing,
what was happening in my life
and things like that, which cre-
ated an atmosphere of memo-
rable camaraderie. I felt as if I
knew him for years, though it
was our first meeting and that
too on an official business.
Many years later, when he had
become the PM of the country,
he invited several actors from
Bollywoodforaneveningtreat
at his official residence in Del-
hi and then again I had the op-
portunity of catching up with
him. He shook hands with me
and asked me in Gujarati, how
I was doing. I forgot for the
moment that I was an actor and
he never gave me the impres-
sion that he was the PM of In-
dia. Such is his charisma. He
can come down to the level of
thecommonmanandconverse
with him in the same parlance.
I found a great friend in him.
he government’s
mid-day meal
scheme was run-
ning successfully in Gujarat
schools. But Modi ji’s mind
was filled with ideas on
how to give it a more mod-
ern makeover, make it more
hygienic and more system-
atic. Then he sought to
identify those countries of
the world that had the best
school mid-day meal sys-
tem in place, that could be
emulated by Gujarat for
better results. He located
from his own experiences
during his earlier trips that
Japan had a very robust and
well-structured mid-day
meal scheme in place. He
soon formed a delegation to
conduct research in Japan
and bring the salient points
from there which could be
replicated in the state for a
better education setup. I too
had the opportunity to be a
part of that delegation.
When 8-9 members of the
delegation returned from
the country and reported
back to CM Modi, he gave
a patient hearing of over an
hour to understand the nit-
ty-gritty of the process
adopted by the Japanese
and their feasibility back
home. We reported that no
one touched the meal in
Japanese schools till the
time it was served on the
plates of the children. Eve-
rything was cooked and
processed in a mechanised
way. The meals were served
by the staff wearing gloves.
After hearing everything,
he asked us, tell me, is there
something that is specifi-
cally provided to enhance
the nutrition of the kids? We
were surprised by the
bouncer of a question from
Modi ji. He then told us,
see, I tell you a simple solu-
tion. Children like choco-
lates, right? Why can’t we
give chocolates infused
with vitamins, maybe 2-3
times a week, so that the
nutritional deficiencies in
them could be addressed?
The idea struck brilliant to
us. From that day, the tradi-
tion of providing chocolates
to children in mid-day
meals continues in Gujarat
and is celebrated by all as a
very strategic move to boost
the nutrition of children in
the state.

had said in some context
that you are stupid if you are invest-

time, in 2003-2204 that Modi ji
startedtheVibrantGujaratinitiative
to woo industrialists to invest in the
state. It was known as Vibrant Gu-

2007, Modi ji told me that I have

government is unable to provide

my stakeholders and won’t mind

He immediately sent a ‘su-swaga-
tam’(welcomegreeting)messageto
Ratan Tata. When Tata sought to
know who this message was from,
Modi ji said it is me, the CM of Gu-
jarat.Tatawassurprisedandhesaid,
please tell me what it. To this Modi
ji said, I will provide you with all
thefacilitiesyouneed.Youinvestin

prehensive. He said I am already
deep in water.What’s the guarantee
thattheprojectwon’tmeetthesame
fate in Gujarat as it was seeing Ben-
gal. Modi ji said, it is my guarantee.
There won’t be any problem here.
Finally,heconvincedtheTatachair-
man and on the CM’s invitation, he
sent teams to locate a suitable site
in Gujarat. Modi ji offered them
three sites and the team finally ze-
roed in on Sanand for the automo-
bile plant. Once done, Tata had
another apprehension. He asked,
but when will the land be available
to us? Modi ji said, within 72
hours. And in 72 hours, not only
the land was ready but also all the
planning and ancillary require-
ments were finalised. Ratan Tata
came on Dussehra and signed the
papers. In the next Vibrant Gujarat
summit, theTata boss said, you are
stupid if you are not investing in
Gujarat!
I
Tata’s tryst with Gujarat has much
to do with Modi’s Guarantee
ok Sabha election was held
soon after the Kargil War.
Many soldiers and officers of
the Army had been martyred in the war.
Modi ji asked, in Haryana can’t we give
ticket to some martyr’s wife or family
member as a tribute to his sacrifice? I
scouted for names and finally after 5-6
days zeroed in on Sudha Yadav, who
went on to win the election and become
an MP. As soon as she was given tick-
et by the party, there was a resounding
support for her in the area. But Sudha
ji neither had any political exposure or
experience, nor did she have much re-
sources to fight the polls. So, one day
Modi ji called a meeting of the kar-
yakartas to garner resources for her. He
told them that whenever he went home,
his mother always put some money into
his pocket. Being a pracharak, he didn’t
need money and so he always kept
them with him to use for some good
cause. So, for Sudha ji, he first donated
his share of money into the kalash (urn)
designated for the purpose. This moti-
vated others and donations soon started
flowing in. People enthusiastically par-
ticipated in the donation programme,
and some even pledged lakhs of rupees.
You won’t believe, within no time, we
had Rs 7 lakh in our kitty. In 1999, Rs
7 lakh was a big amount and this easily
helped us undertake the election ex-
penses to ensure Sudha ji’s win.

ISSUE
M
WHY ATTRACTING TOURISTS IS A
PROFITABLE DEAL FOR RAJASTHAN
The number of domestic tourists
coming to Rajasthan has increased
by about 12 times in last 4 years.
As per Tourism Department, a total of 32.44
crore domestic tourists visited Rajasthan
from January 2020 to December 2023. On
the other hand, during the same period,
more than 22.20 lakh foreign tourists visited
Rajasthan to see its historical heritage.
Night life attracts domestic and foreign
tourists. It is also required by corporate and
many other business sectors. Experts say,
education hubs in Kota, Bhiwadi, Neemrana
have started being recognized as major
industrial areas in India. In such a situation,
if 24-hour markets are allowed to open in
these areas, it will be a profitable deal.
IT IS ALSO NECESSARY TO TAKE
THESE PRECAUTIONS IN NIGHT LIFE
Generally there are some
complaints about night life like
people creating ruckus after drinking
alcohol, playing loud music till late night in
residential areas, parking in front of people’s
houses and drunken driving. Experts
say that the police should keep a vigilant
system to stop such activities. Closing a
hotel, restaurant or bar on the basis of a
thumb rule is not the right way. If someone
is peacefully eating or enjoying a party at a
restaurant, hotel or any commercial place,
then he or she should get this facility at night.
This facility is available in big cities where
tourism is high and the corporate sector
is big. At present, modern policing is
needed instead of traditional policing.

towards making the coun-
try’s higher education
system more advanced

Modi, while inaugurat-
ing the new Nalanda Uni-
versity campus here,
called upon students to
always remain curious
and courageous.
“Nalanda is not just a
renaissance of India’s
past. The heritage of
many countries of the
world and Asia is linked
to it. Our partner coun-
tries have also partici-
pated in the reconstruc-
tion of Nalanda Univer-
sity. I greet all the friend-
ly countries of India on
this occasion,” he said.
“Nalanda was once the
epicentreofIndia’seduca-
tional identity. Education
goes beyond the realms of
borders, profits and loss-
es. Education shapes our
thoughts and behaviour.
During ancient times, ad-
mission to Nalanda Uni-
versity was not based on
the nationality of the stu-
dent. People from differ-
ent walks of life used to
come here in pursuit of
education,” Modi said.
The PM said he wants
India to become a global
hub for knowledge and
education.
Our government is
working towards
making the country’s
higher education
system more
advanced and
research-oriented. I
am confident that our

overnor Kalraj
Mishra high-
lighted the
pressing challenge of pre-
serving human values
amidst the rise of artifi-
cial intelligence.
He emphasized that the
indiscriminate exploita-
tion of water is leading to
severe water crises not
only in Rajasthan but
across the nation. Mishra
urged universities to take
proactive educational ini-
tiatives in response to
these challenges, stating
that true education goes
beyond textbooks to con-
nect students with envi-
ronmental understanding.
Addressing the 33rd
convocation ceremony of
Rajasthan University and
the inauguration of Con-
stitution Park, Mishra un-
derscored the importance
of universities fully im-
plementing the new edu-
cation policy. He advo-
cated for such courses
that can accelerate India’s
development trajectory.
Mishra emphasized
that a profound under-
standing of the Constitu-
tion is crucial for the
country’s bright future.
To foster this under-
standing among the new
generation, Mishra said
that an initiative to estab-
lish Constitution Parks in
universities was taken on
directions by Raj Bhavan.
He clarified that while
amendments can be made
to the Constitution, its
core principles remain
unchanged.
He also said that some
people created hype in
the past days that the con-
stitution will be changed.
“The constitution can
be amended but cannot be
changed.There is a provi-
sion for amendment. We
can make laws that are
beneficial according to
the time,” he said.
Mishra discouraged the
spread of misinforma-
tion, affirming that In-
dia’s Constitution stands
as one of the world’s
best, likening it to re-
vered scriptures like the
Gita, Quran, and Bible.

airavi Jindal, a
16-year-old from
Gurgaon, currently a
12th-grade student
at The Shri Ram
School, Aravali, has
embarked on an inspiring jour-
ney in the world of pag-
eantry and arts. Born in
Barnala, Punjab,
Kairavi has
lived in
Gurgaon
all her
life, where
she nurtured
her love for art,
dancing, and baking.
A Kathak dancer with
a junior diploma,
Kairavi enjoys baking
desserts in her free time
and has a knack for dress-
ing up gracefully.
Her journey into the world of
pageantry began last year when
she came across the Miss Teen
Diva pageant where she won
the title of ‘Beauty with a Brain’
under the mentorship of Nikhil
Anand, Founder of Glamanand
group  Franchise Owner of
Miss India Universe. With her
parents’ unwavering support,
she decided to participate. This
experience was transformative
for Kairavi; she learned the im-
portance of confidence, and per-
sonal growth, and formed last-
ing friendships with contestants
from across the country. Her
parents were her pillars of sup-
port, encouraging her at every
step, and her teachers were
equally supportive, celebrating
her achievements.
One of the biggest challenges
Kairavi faced was being away
from her family for a week,
which was a new experience for
her. The pressure of the compe-
tition was intense, but she
learned to enjoy the journey and
make the most of it. Her mantra,
“Don’t count the days, make the
days count,” reflects her belief
in making each moment pro-
ductive and meaningful.
Kairavi’s passion for art is
evidentinherachievements.She
wonanational-levelartcompeti-
tion organized by ITIHAAS and
participated in a street art event
in Gurgaon, promoting tradi-
tional Indian art forms. Her ded-
ication to Kathak is also note-
worthy, as she is preparing for
her 5th Year exam under the
Prayag Sangeet Samiti.
Looking ahead, Kairavi as-
pires to study Math and Eco-
nomics at an Ivy League uni-
versity while continuing to
pursue her love for fine and
performing arts. She aims to
refine her skills in pageantry
and hopes to represent India at
the international level, embod-
ying the title she won at the
Miss Teen Diva pageant,
“Beauty with Brains.”
Kairavi Jindal, a captivating blend of beauty and intellect, has carved a unique path
in the industry, culminating in her crowning achievement at the Miss Teen Diva
pageant, where she earned the coveted title of “Beauty with Brains.”City First
highlights her journey, marked by dedication, perseverance, and an unyielding
spirit, as she aims to refine her skills and represent India on the international stage.

  • 2. remember when the first investors’ summit was held in 2003, it was greet- edwithlotsofcriticismaseveryone thought no one was going to attend the event or invest in the state at the time of global downturn. Also, it was soon after the Kutch earth- quake and people had very little expectations from Gujarat. The event was held on a much smaller scale and the venue was Tagore Hall, which had a capacity to seat not more than 700-800 people. When we attended the event, we found all the front rows were oc- cupied by government officials or political leaders and many of the industrialists or their representa- tives had to keep standing. Modi ji too must have observed this anom- aly, as was proved later. When the next summit was held, at a much granderscalethistime,andrechris- tened as Vibrant Gujarat Summit, things were completely restruc- tured under Modi ji’s guidance.All thelacunaeofthefirstsummitwere weeded out efficiently and there was no room left for any grudge or complaint from any quarter. One of the trademarks of Modi’s way of working is to innovate and make his initiatives truly world-class. He made it a point to choose a larger space this time where there would beproperseatingarrangements.He made it clear to the officials that it wasanindustryfunctionratherthan a government event and preference must be given to industrialists. He also suggested adding components to impress foreign delegates ac- cording to their preferences so that they found the right indices to in- vest in the state. Hence, the second Vibrant Gujarat had a lot of struc- tured programmes and after that, this continued during the succeed- ing summits. As a result, Vibrant Gujarat has today reached unprec- edented heights. I The restructuring of investors’ summit, the Modi way Sudhir Mehta Chairman, Torrent Group  Vol 6  Issue No. 14  RNI NO.

We shared the stage together. So, af- ter the event he asked me many things and during the conversa- tion I conveyed to him the differ- ent problems of athletes in the country. To this, the PM respond- ed immediately and called his PA, urging me to explain the things to that person so that action could be taken up immediately. I was sur- prised that the PMO itself took cognizance of our issues and so promptly took steps to solve them. I also found for the first time that Modi ji was deeply in- terested in sports and knew about every athlete and his/her perfor- mance. I came to know that be- fore every major championship, the PM himself calls up the ath- lete/athletes concerned to moti- vate them and wish them the best for the event, and big send-offs are organised regularly. Even af- ter every championship we are celebrating each victory in a big way due to the personal initiative of the PM, which was never the way earlier. And more than that, because of the interest and in- volvement of the PM, there has been a lot of change in our system over these years of the Modi gov- ernment. Lot of good infrastruc- ture is coming up and competitive events are being organised even at the grassroots level in remote areas to bring out hidden talents to the mainstream. This is a major boost for the country’s sports prospects. All athletes are happy because we have never seen such aggressive branding and promo- tion of sports in India before. This momentum that has been created by the PM will continue and go a long way in taking the country forward in this sphere. The sup- port we are getting now from the system is unprecedented. The PM takes personal interest in all our affairs, even our family’s well- being, and talks to us like a friend so that we feel confident and rest assured that we don’t have any trouble in perusing our profes- sions with utmost dedication and diligence, since the prime minis- ter of the country is behind us with all his support. remember, when Pramod Mahajan ji passed away and I was in Dadar for his funeral, I met Modi ji for the first time. There were several minis- ters of the Central government in attendance at the solemn occa- sion. Modi ji was the Chief Min- ister of Gujarat at that time. A small makeshift stage was rigged up at the venue where the minis- ters and CMs were to be seated. The front rows were reserved for the Union ministers, CMs and senior leaders of the BJP, while the seats for the MPs, including me, and other lesser VIPs were behind them. I was a young MP, all of 27 years, elected to the Par- liament for the first time. Under- standably, very few people knew me or recognised me. Modi ji was seated just in front of me…the distance between his chair and mine was minimal.As a courtesy, I stood up and greeted him with folded hands. I saw him sitting and then cleaning his eyeglasses. Soon after that, he turned around and said, ‘Milind bhai, how are you?’ I was shocked and sur- prised to realise that he knew who I was. Then he asked me whether the place we were in at that time fell under my constituency or my neighbouring constituency. So, I instantly felt he was very aware of things happening not just around him but in the field of geo-politics beyond his immedi- ate realm of affairs too and it came to me that he was a man with his ears very much to the ground. I also realised in my sub- sequent meetings with him that he recognises you, remembers you and puts the right name to your face, which is very neces- sary in public life and the hall- mark of great leadership. What is a matter of great joy for our fam- ily is that when Modi ji went to Houston to campaign for Donald Trump and he addressed the In- dian diaspora at the NRG stadium there, at that time there was a tweet by him that said that he was missing his friend Murli Deora ji at this time who had took a lot of effort to strengthen ties between India and the US. Murli bhai must be very proud of this. He said, when Modi ji is respected world- wide, it is not just Modi’s triumph but the triumph of India. Through the PM, the entire 140 crore peo- ple of India are getting that re- spect. My friend Murli Deora must be very proud of all the hard work he did to improve the rela- tions between the two countries, Modi ji said. This was a moment of pride for us in the family as well as in the party and in our supporters. We realised that Modi ji has the ability to rise to the oc- casion and rise above party lines to give credit to people where they merit it, for his larger focus remains steadfast on what is good for the country and humanity. s soon as I Joined the BJP, I got the opportunity to meet PM Modi ji on the stage. He gave a speech on the oc- casion.Iwasobserving,andyouall mustbeknowingthatModijiestab- lishesaninstantbondwiththeaudi- ence when he speaks. The human connect is impeccable. He feels the pulse of the people and knows ex- actlywhattosaytothem.Heknows how to connect with the audience and involve them. This is the great- est attribute of a leader who can connect with his people. See, I am also an actor.And for a long time at that.We actors also tend to develop an understanding of the people we meet and talk to and know if they are genuine and original in their thought,approachandintentionsor fake. Modi sir is so natural. He is naturally affable. While we were leaving the state, he called me and said, Mithun da, I want to speak with you. I was quite surprised. Taking out time from his busy schedule,hesatwithmeforover10 minutes. And in those 10 minutes, he explained to me so many things, guiding me through the complex alleys of politics enumerating what I should do and what I shouldn’t. Then he called his secretary and asked him to provide his personal number to me. Simultaneously, he also advised me to call him up di- rectly without hesitation whenever I felt the need. I was overwhelmed by his gesture. He left after the event, but those 10 minutes were charismatic and remain etched in my mind forever. It is not just be- cause he was the PM talking to me personally in a friendly manner but because of his responsiveness and his natural behaviour, which creat- ed an impact on me.The maximum time, if I remember correctly, he ever took to respond to me is 23 minutes. Once I sent him a text message and he was in a different timezone,perhapsinGermany,and he took that much time to respond. Even if he is busy at a time, he wouldusuallyreply,saying‘tomor- row’or give another time. His nor- mal turnaround time is not more than 10-15 minutes. Who am I in the party? I may be a known actor, but in the party, I am nothing, just a karyakarta. Why would the PM be concerned about me? But such is Modi sir’s nature. When he has asked me to consult in case of any problem and committed to help me out, he would stand by it, no matter what.That’sthekindofresponsive- nessthatbehovesagreatleader.Not just me, he will never reply to any- one with vague statements like ‘Let’ssee’or‘Letmecheck’.Ikeep away from such people because I know they never ‘see’. Modi sir is one who will straightaway call that person in need and tell him, ‘Meet me.Wewillsortit.’Suchistheman, PMofournation,acommitteddoer.

It was in June 1992. Narendra Modi ji was also present at the event and he took a lecture session there. At the end he asked the delegates that if they had something to ask or discuss with him, they could do so. At that time I felt like asking a question that had cropped in my mind. I asked him, it is very hot here but why are you wearing two vests? To this Narendra ji said, who told you so? No, I am not wearing two. But I said, yes you are wearing two. Then he asked, how did you come to know? I told him the strap which was visible on the sides of his shoulders showed two of them, one under the other. To this he then explained the reason to me. He said, see I wear a dhoti and ride a bicycle. That is my life. Now often times the end of the dhoti gets tied to the chain of the cycle and gets torn. I try to protect it as best as I can, yet there is always a possibil- ity of an end of my dhoti getting entangled in the chain. Thus, when it is torn, there is no point wearing it anymore. It is then that I fold it, make it double and get a vest stitched with the same. Now this vest has some holes in it but it will serve for sometime more. Then I will not throw it away. I will use it to clean my shoes, he said. I was astonished to hear all this. Sundar Singh Bhandari ji was present there during the conver- sation. He then asked him, but why do you do this dhoti to vest thing? Here Modi ji said, do you know, there are lakhs of people in the coun- try who don’t have a piece of cloth on their body. We should make good use of what soci- ety has given us, instead of unnecessary wast- age. On that day I realised that a person who has such high thoughts for the country and society, will do great for the country once the time comes. nce I suggested to Modi ji that I wanted to publish another book that would be on the manifesto of the BJP for that year’s elections. I had seriously thought that such a book was needed to deliver to the people the manifestos salience in greater detail. But to my surprise, Modi ji outright dismissed the idea as unfruit- ful. He told me, the explanation of the party manifesto won’t have any deep impact on the people. They will gloss over it and put it aside. He rather gave me a to- tally different perspective. He said, if you want to publish something, take up issues that affect people. For instance, publish a book on the water amenities in different ar- eas and then, compare it with the perspectives of different political parties on the same issue and how they are going to solve it or what they have done on it. Tell people how different parties are approaching the same issue. That will really help people understand what actually we are doing for them differently. It struck me as a novelty that would work. I realised instantly that a manifesto is a regular affair that every party brings out. It was Modi ji’s innovative idea of connecting it to issues of the common man and how other parties were doing on them that really worked in the end. nce I got a call from the president of the Umiya Mata temple. He said you hold big government programmes all the time. If possible, also help us organise an upcoming event of Umiya Mata ji in our community. I assured him of looking into the matter and trying my best and sub- sequently brought the matter to the attention of Modi ji. Modi ji imme- diately said, it is a social work for the uplift of the community and society and we must help them. So, I took upon the responsibility and started planning. We decided to or- ganise yagnas and darshans for the five days of the event along with some activities for the uplift of the community like rozgaar mela (em- ployment fair), education seminar, exhibitions etc. We took the plan to CM Modi for a presentation. The temple committee members, trus- tees etc. were present there. I showed him the plan on my laptop. He saw the whole presentation with rapt attention and then said at the end, people in your community are farmers. Kadwa Patidars have land holdings and they do farming on them. People may not listen to me or you but they will certainly listen to the goddess. To address global warming and water scarcity issues, try to have the devotees take a pledge in front of the goddess that if one has 10-acre land, at least on one or two acres he would use drip irrigation technique or deploy sprinklers. You won’t believe, as we took forward the initiative sug- gested by the Chief Minister, no less than 1.5 lakh farmers took the pledge in front of the goddess in those five days of the event and filled out a form to adopt drip irri- gation technology.

I first met him when he was the CM of Gu- jarat. Even at the first meet- ing, his vibe was so friendly that I felt I was talking to some close family member of mine. He struck to us as a very humble, down-to- earth person and most im- portantly very casual in his conversation, shorn of all the airs of being the CM of a state. He made us feel that he was one of us and not a VIP. Then came his stupen- dous victory in 2014 that catapulted him into a global leader. I was going through a tough phase of lots of per- sonal problems in my life but still, I felt deep inside that I must go and congratu- late him on becoming the PM of the country as I was genuinely happy for him. When I went to meet him I was falling short of words. Narendra bhai was crowded by people around him. But just as he saw me, he rushed to my side and conversed with me privately, leaving everything and everyone behind. And the first ques- tion he asked me was if the problems in my family had been sorted. I was literally in tears that a person, de- spite just reaching the sky, was still so grounded that he remembered me, and my family issues and was con- cerned about them. This enhanced my respect for him and I told him you are really my elder brother to have asked me of my wel- fare with such genuine con- cern. You will be the first person to know once I am out of the difficulties. He takes care of everyone, like his very own, no matter how small the person is. This only goes to show he is a man of a pure heart. ‘Will never forget Narendra bhai’s care during a tough phase of my life’ PERSPECT VE 06 Jaipur, Thursday | May 30, 2024 www.firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia ‘MODI HAI TO MUMKIN HAI…’ UNTOLD STORIES OF PM MODI — PART 86 remember first meet- inghonourableNaren- dra Modi ji way back in 2012. He was still serving as the chief minister of Gujarat then. I was taken there (to Ahmedabad) by someone for a discussion with him on a pro- posed film city project in the state capital. I was told that I would need to wait outside at the CM’s office before getting entry to his chamber and also warned that the CM won’t be able to give much time as there was an immense workload and he was super busy. Surpris- ingly, when I was at his office, we didn’t even have to wait outside and Modi ji called us in immediately. And unbelieva- bly, despite all that I had heard, he was so friendly and homely with us that I felt I was chatting up with some long-time bhidu (friend). The conversations were very normal and it never seemed to me we were talking to the chief minister, he was so easygoing and affable.Then he showed us a book on Rann of Kutch and suggested it was an ideal location for film shoot- ings and he wanted to boost its prospects. In between he kept talking about how I was doing, what was happening in my life and things like that, which cre- ated an atmosphere of memo- rable camaraderie. I felt as if I knew him for years, though it was our first meeting and that too on an official business. Many years later, when he had become the PM of the country, he invited several actors from Bollywoodforaneveningtreat at his official residence in Del- hi and then again I had the op- portunity of catching up with him. He shook hands with me and asked me in Gujarati, how I was doing. I forgot for the moment that I was an actor and he never gave me the impres- sion that he was the PM of In- dia. Such is his charisma. He can come down to the level of thecommonmanandconverse with him in the same parlance. I found a great friend in him. he government’s mid-day meal scheme was run- ning successfully in Gujarat schools. But Modi ji’s mind was filled with ideas on how to give it a more mod- ern makeover, make it more hygienic and more system- atic. Then he sought to identify those countries of the world that had the best school mid-day meal sys- tem in place, that could be emulated by Gujarat for better results. He located from his own experiences during his earlier trips that Japan had a very robust and well-structured mid-day meal scheme in place. He soon formed a delegation to conduct research in Japan and bring the salient points from there which could be replicated in the state for a better education setup. I too had the opportunity to be a part of that delegation. When 8-9 members of the delegation returned from the country and reported back to CM Modi, he gave a patient hearing of over an hour to understand the nit- ty-gritty of the process adopted by the Japanese and their feasibility back home. We reported that no one touched the meal in Japanese schools till the time it was served on the plates of the children. Eve- rything was cooked and processed in a mechanised way. The meals were served by the staff wearing gloves. After hearing everything, he asked us, tell me, is there something that is specifi- cally provided to enhance the nutrition of the kids? We were surprised by the bouncer of a question from Modi ji. He then told us, see, I tell you a simple solu- tion. Children like choco- lates, right? Why can’t we give chocolates infused with vitamins, maybe 2-3 times a week, so that the nutritional deficiencies in them could be addressed? The idea struck brilliant to us. From that day, the tradi- tion of providing chocolates to children in mid-day meals continues in Gujarat and is celebrated by all as a very strategic move to boost the nutrition of children in the state.

It was around this time, in 2003-2204 that Modi ji startedtheVibrantGujaratinitiative to woo industrialists to invest in the state. It was known as Vibrant Gu- jarat Investment Summit, and in 2007, Modi ji told me that I have heardRatanTatasayingafterapress conference that if the West Bengal government is unable to provide land and if the locals in Singur are unwillingtoallowinvestmentinthe Nano plant, I will try to convince my stakeholders and won’t mind movingoutofthestate.Thiswasan important lead for the Gujarat CM. He immediately sent a ‘su-swaga- tam’(welcomegreeting)messageto Ratan Tata. When Tata sought to know who this message was from, Modi ji said it is me, the CM of Gu- jarat.Tatawassurprisedandhesaid, please tell me what it. To this Modi ji said, I will provide you with all thefacilitiesyouneed.Youinvestin my state. Ratan Tata was a bit ap- prehensive. He said I am already deep in water.What’s the guarantee thattheprojectwon’tmeetthesame fate in Gujarat as it was seeing Ben- gal. Modi ji said, it is my guarantee. There won’t be any problem here. Finally,heconvincedtheTatachair- man and on the CM’s invitation, he sent teams to locate a suitable site in Gujarat. Modi ji offered them three sites and the team finally ze- roed in on Sanand for the automo- bile plant. Once done, Tata had another apprehension. He asked, but when will the land be available to us? Modi ji said, within 72 hours. And in 72 hours, not only the land was ready but also all the planning and ancillary require- ments were finalised. Ratan Tata came on Dussehra and signed the papers. In the next Vibrant Gujarat summit, theTata boss said, you are stupid if you are not investing in Gujarat! I Tata’s tryst with Gujarat has much to do with Modi’s Guarantee ok Sabha election was held soon after the Kargil War. Many soldiers and officers of the Army had been martyred in the war. Modi ji asked, in Haryana can’t we give ticket to some martyr’s wife or family member as a tribute to his sacrifice? I scouted for names and finally after 5-6 days zeroed in on Sudha Yadav, who went on to win the election and become an MP. As soon as she was given tick- et by the party, there was a resounding support for her in the area. But Sudha ji neither had any political exposure or experience, nor did she have much re- sources to fight the polls. So, one day Modi ji called a meeting of the kar- yakartas to garner resources for her. He told them that whenever he went home, his mother always put some money into his pocket. Being a pracharak, he didn’t need money and so he always kept them with him to use for some good cause. So, for Sudha ji, he first donated his share of money into the kalash (urn) designated for the purpose. This moti- vated others and donations soon started flowing in. People enthusiastically par- ticipated in the donation programme, and some even pledged lakhs of rupees. You won’t believe, within no time, we had Rs 7 lakh in our kitty. In 1999, Rs 7 lakh was a big amount and this easily helped us undertake the election ex- penses to ensure Sudha ji’s win.

Protests in Barmer over 50% women's quota in jobs First India Bureau Barmer Several youth in Bar- mer demonstrated against the Rajasthan government’s decision to increase women’s reservation in Grade III teacher recruitment to 50 percent. Carrying placards that read “Re- move 50% Women’s Reservation,” the pro- testers chanted slogans against the govern- ment. On Wednesday, the youth gathered at Mahavir Park in the district headquarters andmarchedtotheDis- trict Collectorate. They held banners demand- ing the removal of the increased reservation for women and loudly voiced their discontent with the government’s decision. To maintain order, police were de- ployed throughout the area. A delegation of students met with Dis- trict Collector Nishant Jain and submitted a memorandum ad- dressedtoChief Minis- ter Bhajanlal Sharma. The protest under- scores the tensions and differing opinions on the policy change, highlighting the need for further dialogue between the govern- ment and the youth of Barmer. Govt had earlier approved to increase the reservation for women to 50% in Grade-3 teacher recruitment This system is already implemented in Haryana, Himachal, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Telangana Night life increases employment, GST also increases proportionately Night life attracts domestic and foreign tourists in the Pink City Pankaj Soni Jaipur arkets will re- main lit up all night in all 16 municipal corporations and industrial areas of Madhya Pradesh includ- ing Bhopal, Indore, Ja- balpur, Gwalior, Ujjain. Markets, restaurants, malls, hotels, business centers and offices re- lated to information technology will remain open 24 hours. Howev- er, pubs, bars, clubs, liq- uor shops will close at the scheduled time. Madhya Pradesh will become the seventh state in the country where markets will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Be- fore this, malls, restau- rants, IT sector, main markets, business cent- ers were kept open 24 hours in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Utta- rakhand and Telangana. This is the state where there is a large influx of tourists or these states are developing as IT or business hubs. Rajasthan is the major tourist attracting state of the country, but at the same time some areas of the state are making their mark across the country as business hubs and education hubs. But despite this, the concept of night bazaar in the state is buried in files for a long time. Experts be- lieve that along with Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodh- pur, Jaisalmer and Mount Abu are the big- gest tourist destinations, where there is a dire need to promote night life in view of the move- ment of tourists in large numbers. The corporate sector is also growing rapidly in Jaipur, for which it is also neces- sary to open malls, res- taurants, business cent- ers at night. QUOTE UNQUOTE If the markets in Rajasthan are allowed to remain open for 24 hours, then it will prove to be a convenience enhancer for the tourists. Night life has a different attraction for tourists. PRABHU SINGH SHEKHAWAT, PRESIDENT, RAJASTHAN TOURIST AND GUIDE ASSOCIATION With the market being open for 24 hours, not only will industrial capacity increase, but businessmen will also benefit. Employment opportunities will also increase. KAMAL KANDOI, CHAIRMAN ARTIA Certainly, if such relaxation is given in Rajasthan, then not only will it increase the tourist business, it will also be beneficial for businessmen. ASHISH SARAF, CHIEF PATRON, ARTIA BIG ISSUE M WHY ATTRACTING TOURISTS IS A PROFITABLE DEAL FOR RAJASTHAN The number of domestic tourists coming to Rajasthan has increased by about 12 times in last 4 years. As per Tourism Department, a total of 32.44 crore domestic tourists visited Rajasthan from January 2020 to December 2023. On the other hand, during the same period, more than 22.20 lakh foreign tourists visited Rajasthan to see its historical heritage. Night life attracts domestic and foreign tourists. It is also required by corporate and many other business sectors. Experts say, education hubs in Kota, Bhiwadi, Neemrana have started being recognized as major industrial areas in India. In such a situation, if 24-hour markets are allowed to open in these areas, it will be a profitable deal. IT IS ALSO NECESSARY TO TAKE THESE PRECAUTIONS IN NIGHT LIFE Generally there are some complaints about night life like people creating ruckus after drinking alcohol, playing loud music till late night in residential areas, parking in front of people’s houses and drunken driving. Experts say that the police should keep a vigilant system to stop such activities. Closing a hotel, restaurant or bar on the basis of a thumb rule is not the right way. If someone is peacefully eating or enjoying a party at a restaurant, hotel or any commercial place, then he or she should get this facility at night. This facility is available in big cities where tourism is high and the corporate sector is big. At present, modern policing is needed instead of traditional policing. Marketswillbe open24hoursin MadhyaPradesh RAJASTHANIS WAITINGFOR NIGHTLIFE Understand the benefits of night life from these points Government rev- enue will increase by getting GST from people who go to malls or restaurants late at night and shop Commercial activi- ties will increase due to markets being open late at night or 24 hours and shopping Tourists will be attracted towards late night markets. Profits of traders will also increase Hotels, restau- rants, industrial units and services related to the service sec- tor will also be available 24 hours for people With markets and other services run- ning day and night, all kinds of employment opportunities, big and small, will also increase 1 2 3 4 5 NAIM KHAN FI’s reporting gets EC’s ‘approval’!

The report had also revealed that the three names are of officials from batches of the year 1995, 1997 and 1998. The report had also hinted that one of these IAS is posted outside of the Secretariat.

As of now, the biggest respon- sibility for Mahajan would be to get by-polls conduct- ed for five vacant seats in the state assembly. Now the most talked about topic in the bureau- cratic circles is as to what responsibility will be handed to IAS Praveen Gupta in the Bhajan Lal government considering that Gupta was Secretary - Finance (Revenue) - for complete five year term of the previous Vasundhara Raje government.
