This illustrated and elegantly-produced book weaves in the ideas of Mahatma Gandhi. It presents the thoughts and policy initiatives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi through vivid photographs that juxtapose those of the Mahatma with that of Mr. Modi and a cogent text which comprises excerpts from the latter’s speeches. In his Foreword, Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, the renowned social reformer and the Founder of Sulabh International, sums up the concept of the book thus, “This book beautifully charts a parallel trajectory of Mahatma Gandhi’s universal ideas and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s actions to realise Bapu’s dreams.”
Published by BlueKraft Digital Foundation and Sulabh International Centre for Action Sociology, this book brings out the close linkages between the developmental agenda of Prime Minister Modi and the ideas of Gandhi. Though its evocative pictures and words, the book brings forth the congruence of Gandhi’s vision and Modi’s mission towards a developed, compassionate and prosperous nation. As the authors put it, “Time and again, Prime Minister Modi has invoked Bapu’s teachings to mobilise people’s power for the nation’s growth. Through his speeches, Prime Minister Modi has spread Bapu’s message, and in his work, he has actualised Gandhiji’s principles.”
Profusely quoting Gandhiji on sanitation, villages and Khadi, the book is especially notable for reinforcing his great stress on cleanliness and the Prime Minister’s mission of making India open-defecation-free and clean by 2019 when the country celebrates the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.
This invaluable book gives an insight into Gandhi’s ideas and idealism and how Prime Minister Modi is putting them into practice, showing how Gandhiji’s ideas remain relevant in the India and world of early 21st century. An indispensable book for scholars, researchers as well as common people who are interested in the contemporary India and the contributions of Mahatma Gandhi and Prime Minister Modi in making India a great country.
