Netizens have launched a new website, which is a one-of-a-kind volunteer-driven initiative showcasing the heartwarming life stories of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as seen through the eyes of those who have had a glimpse into his life.
The new website, titled ‘Modi Story,’ collects anecdotes and reminiscences from people who have been close to the Prime Minister throughout his life. It will include write-ups, audio or visual stories, photos of PM Modi, letters, and personal mementos associated with him.
Smrit Irani, Union Minister for Women and Child Development, said on Twitter, ” Stories of grit and grace… Memories of the magic of personal meetings, conversations that reflect an amiable persona, and decisive political personality stories that have gone untold and unheard.”
“Check out this unique initiative by a volunteer group! Interesting stories and anecdotes of PM Narendra Modi JIs journey and work in public life,” Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Anurag Thakur shared the website picture on Twitter.
Dr. Anil Raval, who is from Gujarat, told a heartbreaking storey about a trip he took with the Prime Minister in the 1980s. “What got you committed to the upliftment of the last man standing?” Dr Raval asked the PM, to which Modi Ji responded by recalling an incident in which he had gone to the house of a ‘swayamsevak’ and had lunch there.
“I once went to a swayamsevak’s house,” Dr Raval said, quoting PM Modi. It was called a jhuggi. His wife, child, and the swayamsevak himself lived in the jhuggi. They served me half a bhajra roti and a small bowl of milk with my thali. The child, who sat on his mother’s lap, was staring intently at the bowl of milk. I eventually realised the milk was intended for him. I only ate half of the roti with water and skipped the milk.”
“The mother then gave the milk to a kid, and he drank it in a single breath,” he continued. My eyes were welling up with tears. That’s when I decided to dedicate my life for the upliftment of the last man standing.”
