After reading MadhuKishwar's Modi, Muslims and Media I have started adoring him. Themanner in which the author has gone about talking to officials andpeople in detail, about the functioning of the Gujarat government underModi; her visits to various parts of Gujarat to know about the conditionsprevailing in the state; her unbiased and masterly analyses of the materialshe gathered through her tireless work, makes this book almost a thesis.But unlike an academic thesis, the book makes absorbing reading; apartfrom being an irrefutable answer to the prejudiced critics of Modi, it is apage-turner too. Even the blinkered antagonists of Modi would have toconcede the objectivity of the author, because her assessment of Modi andhis governance is based not on her own opinion, but on the perceptionof the scores of diverse people whom she met.How did Modi come to grips with the administration of a state? Howdid he manage the after-effects of a devastating earthquake even as hetook charge of the administration? How does he manage to provide 24x7electricity to all of Gujarat? How did he accomplish the participation ofthe people in many of his schemes? How did he improve the agriculturalproduce of state several times over? How did his administration cometo be known as one that puts technology to effective use? How is it thatwhile he is painted communal by the media and some political parties,the Muslims of Gujarat look to him as a friend and a deliverer!These and such other questions may agitate the minds of even supportersof Modi. This book answers them all. From the moment the reader isintroduced to Zafar Sareshwala, the book becomes unputdownable.When Modi tells Zafar, you are mine. Among the five crore Gujaratis,you are included. When I bring Narmada water into Sabarmati river, doI stop it from flowing through the Muslim settlement of Juhapura? Whoare the biggest beneficiaries of Sabarmati waters near Nehru Bridge?' Thereader realises that he is about to join a journey which would lead him to a view point from where he could witness the majestic flow of factsand truths that would annihilate all the false propaganda that has beenunleashed against Modi and his model of governance.Madhu Kishwar's work should convince any objective reader aboutthe dishonesty behind the anti-Modi propaganda that has been let looseon our society. He is the man of the hour; and that is the clear messagedelivered most effectively by Madhu Kishwar. The messenger deservesthe gratitude of all truth loving people who want to understand NarendraModi and his mission.
