An open letter to Mr Narendra ModiDear Mr. Narendra Modi,
My heartiest congratulations! The NDA under your leadership has done it yet again, even better than 2014. The people of this country have chosen you because they thought you can relive their pains. There is no denying that India is a poor and developing country and naturally there will be pains associated with it. They have again chosen you to find out the reason for the pains and also to get the necessary relief. Applying balm on pain may relieve it instantly, it relieves the sense of pain temporarily but the cause of the pain remains. The cause must be found out and that's a great responsibility.
India is a huge country and the problems of our countrymen are no lesser. I am a simple citizen of this country and no one to tell you about the problems the country is presently facing. You have the team of advisors and representatives of people elected from all around the country and I am sure they will guide you effectively on that front. I remember, in one of your addresses after winning the elections in 2014 you said that some of your decisions may cause some pains to the citizens at the beginning but in the long run it will bear fruits. Five years may not be an ideal period to see the positive results of every project, it may take some more time but people will not wait for an indefinite period to get the results. Winning an election is not like winning a game. You don't have to play with the bat or ball to win this game; rather people give their mandate and choose the person as their representative.
In your victory speech yesterday, you referred to the answer of Lord Krishna after the end of the battle in Mahabharata. Rather supporting any side Lord Krishna said, his interest was to protect Hastinapur. Yes, you are correct. This mandate for you is to protect India and its citizens. With power, comes arrogance and when the opposition is weak there is a high chance for the government in power to become indifferent. You have to ensure that the government stays within its limits and protect the ethos of the constitution. I wish you and your team all the best.
