Prime Minister Modi was welcomed with a grand reception on his arrival from the USA where over 30,000 BJP supporters were present. Some BJP supporters on social media had expressed their displeasure over the same.
Yes, I have read these reactions where people have questioned the event and why BJP should not have done this. People have termed it sycophancy and expressed apprehensions that the BJP will turn into Congress if this continues. But rest assured, it is not so.
You see, PM Modi is making it all look so easy and simple but it was not. What happened in USA is extraordinary and unprecedented.
What happened in UN is also something that was unimaginable a few years back. Complete meltdown of Pakistan and its sympathisers is one big achievement which should be celebrated and highlighted.
Further, the very fact that it was 28th September. Third anniversary of surgical strikes in Uri which we almost have forgotten that. We needed a Modi to carry out surgical strike and we also needed a Modi again to remind us of third anniversary of historical first ever surgical strikes against Pakistan.
It shows that somewhere we have started taking it all for granted. We are forgetting how it all was just impossible and unimaginable a few years back.
As far as fear of BJP becoming Congress, one thing we all should know, BJP cannot become Congress ever because these two are exactly opposite of each other. The very fact that BJP supporters can question and criticise even an event that has PM Modi at the centre of it shows and proves that there is no possibility of it ever becoming like Congress.
BJP would have celebrated the success of Indian Prime Minister on global stage even if it were a Congress Prime Minister. The way Pakistan and anti-India forces are attacking BJP and RSS and the way they are using exact language that Congress and its leaders are using shows the inherent basic difference between BJP and Congress.
We as a nation are witnessing history in the making. We as a nation are witnessing things that were beyond our imagination even till few months back. We should not fall into the trap where we start seeing our big achievements as small and our small problems as big.
We need to learn to celebrate, to highlight and to acknowledge this massive attitudinal and perceptional change that India is going through.
Just because PM Modi is delivering very single day something extraordinary, it doesn’t mean that we can afford to take it all for granted.
Decision like abrogation of Article 370 , Triple Talaq Bill, surgical strike and all the awards and recognitions he is receiving for the remarkable work on development and climate change, is extraordinary and worth celebrating and highlighted and talked about.
Friends, never forget that there are forces who are trying every single day to change the narrative. Forces who depends on negative energy, forces which are constantly working very hard to ensure that India and Indians should never be able to realise and celebrate its extraordinary powers and its extraordinary achievements.
Ending the negativity and highlighting the positivity, ensuring that this message repeatedly reaches to everyone in the society in all possible ways is one most important task at our hands.
Celebrations gives us the belief and faith that we are capable of more.
Abrogation of Article 370, Triple Talaq Bill, Gates Foundation Award, meltdown of Pakistan at UNGA, anniversary of surgical strikes, massive action against high level corruption, aggressive financial reforms and boom in share markets: there is so much to celebrate, the list is long and growing…
This is New India. it celebrates a little and achieve a little more every single day.
