This coffee-table book is very unique in the sense that it has some rare collections of photographs of a great visionary-Narendra Modi depicting his journey from Vadnagar, a small village in Gujarat to 7 Race Cource in New Delhi. His magnetism and mass appeal have given decisive mandate after thirty years in Indian history, turning challenges into victory. The clear mandate can shift the political direction and centre of power with the change in the government. To deal with the ideological difference will remain Herculean task for the newly elected Prime Minister. His main focus will be development agenda but the RSS will hold on to its core issues like Ram Mandir, Article 370, a uniform civil code, etc. His vision of less government and more governance in the new regime is well appreciated and 10-point action plan announced by his government shows his vision for overall development of the country. People voted for a decisive leader and chose decisive leader and politics of action rather than that of inclusion. According to a survey conducted by India Today Group-Cicero, 83 per cent of the respondents claim that India needs decisive leader. During election campaign, we found him interacting with the poor, the downtrodden and peers. He appears to be a leader both humble and grounded, steering the party to historic mandate and that is what is needed at the top. Gujarat has been turned around to become a high growth state under his leadership. Modi has never spoken about personal aspirations. A Gujarat Chief Minister, he speaks of six crore Gujaratis but as the BJP`s Prime Minister candidate he speaks of more than 125 crore population of India.
