PM Modi On His Election Rallies…

“My mind is filled with so many experiences and emotions… I feel a boundless flow of energy within myself. The 2024 Lok Sabha elections are the first in the Amrit Kaal. I began my campaign a few months ago from Meerut, the land of the First War of Independence of 1857. Since then, I have traversed across the length and breadth of our great nation. The final rally of these elections took me to Hoshiarpur in Punjab. The land of the great Gurus and a land associated with Sant Ravidas ji. After that, I came to Kanniyakumari, at the feet of Maa Bharti.” PM Modi wrote.

Continuing further he expressed his gratefulness and his emotions for all those who attended his rallies. He stated, “It is natural that the fervour of the elections was echoing in my heart and mind. The multitude of faces seen in rallies and road shows came in front of my eyes. The blessings from our Nari Shakti, the trust, the affection, all of this was a very humbling experience. My eyes were getting moist.”

On His Spiritual Experience…


Further in the letter, PM Modi expressed his spiritual experience of meditating in Kanniyakumari. He begins by stating how it was initially challenging to mediate amidst political attacks, accusations and debates. However, within no time those voices and words of accusations vanished into a void.

He expressed it as, “A sense of detachment came to grow within me, my mind became completely detached from the external world.” Adding to this, he stated how the land of Kanniyakumari and the inspiration of Swami Vivekananda made things effortless.

PM Modi further stated, “I was also thinking about what Swami Vivekananda must have experienced during his meditation at this very place in Kanniyakumari! A part of my meditation was spent in a similar stream of thoughts.”

He penned down his spiritual experience as, “Amidst this detachment, amidst the peace and silence, my mind was constantly thinking about the bright future of Bharat, the goals of Bharat. The rising sun at Kanniyakumari gave new heights to my thoughts, the vastness of the ocean expanded my ideas, and the expanse of the horizon continuously made me realise the unity, the Oneness, embedded in the depths of the universe. It seemed as if the observations and experiences undertaken in the lap of the Himalayas decades ago were being revived.”

On Kanniyakumari…

PM Modi expressed how Kanniyakumari has always held a special place in his heart. He shared how he had the opportunity to travel extensively with Eknath Ranade during the construction of the memorial.

He wrote, “This is the Shakti Peeth (seat of Shakti) where Maa Shakti incarnated as Kanya Kumari. At this southern tip, Maa Shakti performed penance and waited for Bhagwan Shiva, who was residing in the Himalayas at the northernmost parts of Bharat. Kanniyakumari is the land of confluences. The sacred rivers of our country flow into different seas, and here, those very seas converge. And here, we witness another great confluence — the ideological confluence of Bharat! Here, we find the Vivekananda Rock Memorial, a grand statue of Saint Thiruvalluvar, Gandhi Mandapam, and Kamarajar Mani Mandapam. These streams of thought from these stalwarts converge here to form a confluence of national thought. This gives rise to great inspirations for nation-building. This land of Kanniyakumari gives an indelible message of unity, especially to any person who doubts Bharat’s nationhood and the sense of unity.”

Bharat’s Journey…

PM Modi remembering Swami Vivekananda wrote, “Every nation has a message to deliver, a mission to fulfil, a destiny to reach.”

He penned down how Bharat is moving forward with a sense of meaningful purpose. How Bharat inspired other countries around the world to gain their own Independence. How Bharat provided courage and assistance to many countries during Covid Pandemic. He wrote how today Bharat’s governance model is an example to the world.

“Today, Bharat’s progress and rise are not just a significant opportunity for Bharat alone, but also a historic opportunity for all our partner countries around the world. Since the success of the G-20, the world has been increasingly envisioning a bigger role for Bharat. Today, Bharat is being acknowledged as a strong and important voice of the Global South,” He wrote.

Towards Viksit Bharat…

PM Modi states, “The development trajectory of Bharat fills us with pride and glory, but at the same time, it also reminds the 140 crore citizens of their responsibilities. Now, without wasting a single moment, we must step forward towards greater duties and larger goals.”

“We need to dream new dreams, convert them into reality and begin living those dreams.”

He wrote, “We must see Bharat’s development in a global context, and for this, it is essential that we understand Bharat’s internal capabilities. We must acknowledge Bharat’s strengths, nurture them, and utilise them for the benefit of the world. In today’s global scenario, Bharat’s strength as a youthful nation is an opportunity from which we must not look back. The world of the 21st century is looking towards Bharat with many hopes. And we will need to make several changes to move forward in the global scenario. We also need to change our traditional thinking regarding reform. Bharat cannot limit reform to just economic reforms. We must move forward in every aspect of life towards the direction of reform. Our reforms should also align with the aspirations of a Viksit Bharat (developed India) by 2047.”

Creating A Viksit Bharat!

Towards the end PM Modi urges the people of this country to reassess their outdated thinking and beliefs. He called upon all to lay the foundation stone of Viksit Bharat and the first step being gaining “Freedom From Negativity.”

He wrote, “Just as we utilised the fourth and fifth decades of the 20th century to impart a new momentum to the freedom movement, we must lay the foundation for a Viksit Bharat in these 25 years of the 21st century. The freedom struggle was a time that called for great sacrifices. The present times call for great and sustained contributions from everyone. Today, we have the same golden opportunity. Let’s dedicate the next 25 years solely for the nation. Our efforts will create a strong foundation for the coming generations and the coming centuries, taking Bharat to new heights. Looking at the energy and enthusiasm of the country, I can say that the goal is not far away now. Let us take swift steps… let us come together and create a Viksit Bharat.”
