    Obama writes in Time magazine: Modi's story reflects India's rise

    WASHINGTON:Time magazine naming Prime Minister Narendra Modi among its 100 most influential people in the world is no big deal; the surprise is US President Obama writing a personal acclamation in the magazine praising Modi for his vision of India.

    "Determined to help more Indians follow in his path, he's laid out an ambitious vision to reduce extreme poverty, improve education, empower women and girls and unleash India's true economic potential while confronting climate change," Obama writes in a brief 166-word plaudit, adding that "like India, he transcends the ancient and the modern - a devotee of yoga who connects with Indian citizens on Twitter and imagines a digital India.


    The man who is having a torrid time at the hands of Tea Party enthusiasts in US also invokes Modi's chaiwalla background, recalling that "as a boy, Narendra Modi helped his father sell tea to support their family. Today, he's the leader of the world's largest democracy, and his life story - from poverty to Prime Minister - reflects the dynamism and potential of India's rise."

    No Indian PM has ever entranced the world as Narendra Modi does. And this plaudit is a richly deserved one, for a man who has been tirelessly working to deliver on the promises he made to this nation.I read another article about how Swach Bharat in Varanasi although a daunting task actually seems to be coming true at least at the Ghats. For the first time we have a PM who delivers. :)
