Netizens have launched a new website displaying the amazing life tales of Prime Minister Narendra Modi through the lens of individuals who have had a peep into his life. It is a project-driven solely by unique volunteers.
The new 'Modi Story' website collects first-hand recollections and reminiscences of people who have closely observed the Prime Minister's life. It also requests write-ups, audio or visual stories of any such encounter or incident, as well as images with PM Modi, letters, or personal mementoes related to him.
Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani shared the Twitter handle of the new website (modistory.in). It was launched by the granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi, Sumitra Gandhi Kulkarni.
Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Anurag Thakur tweeted sharing the information about the website. "Check out this unique initiative by a volunteer group! Interesting stories and anecdotes of PM Narendra Modi Jis journey and work in public life.”
Gujrat resident Dr. Anil Raval, revealed a heartbreaking incident told to him by the Prime Minister in the 1980s when he was travelling with him. Dr. Raval had questioned the Prime Minister, "What got you devoted to the upliftment of the last man standing?" In response, PM Modi remembered an occasion in which he had gone to a 'swayamsevak’ s' residence for lunch.
"I had once gone to a swayamsevak's house," Dr Raval remarked, quoting the PM. "It was a jhuggi. His wife, child, and the swayamsevak all lived in the jhuggi. They brought me half a bhajra flatbread and a little bowl of milk in a thali. The child, who sat on his mother's lap, was staring carefully at the bowl of milk. I realised the milk was intended for him. I only ate half of the roti with water and skipped the milk."
He continued his story by saying, "The mother then gave the milk to the child, who gulped it all in one breath. My eyes were welling up with tears. That's when I vowed to dedicate my life to helping the last man standing."
The website has several stories related to Modi who crossed paths with the Prime Minister.
How Sardar Modi escaped
Another Gujarat citizen, Rohit Agrawal, related an unheard-of incident in which PM Modi disguised himself as a 'Sardarji' (Sikh) during the emergency and narrowly dodged being captured by policemen.
"When he was disguised as a Sardar, a police officer approached him and said, 'Where does Narendra Modi live?' He answered, 'I don't know. You are welcome to inquire inside. Narendra Modi then rode away with my brother on a scooter " Agrawal stated.
"Not only the cop, but even we frequently misled by his appearance," he added.
