Saffron on Us

Who could ever thought that the BJP alone would emerge as the single party with the majority? Who could ever think the BJP alone would bag 284 seats - much more than 272 seats required to form a government?

Narendra Damodardas Modi's was not just a wave, it was a sunami that inundated the whole of the country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, to use the old cliche. 

Can you explain it? 

Nobody apparently loves NaMo, but he wins in a big way. Not because of his party, but because of his own charisma or whatever.

One way to explain it: the dismal performance of the most parties, especially the Congress who was deep in multiple scams, and pushed the country to the edge with people reeling under sky-rocketing price rise, among other things. The mandate might be a reflection of the desperation of the masses to lift out of the pit they were thrown in. It could be the casual but reckless let-us-try- Modi -this- time attitude.

The widespread desperation had wind from media blitzkrieg generated by fund from top-notch industrialists like, for example,  Ambanis who spent crores for victory of Modi - their blue-eyed boy.  In the process, NaMo obscured his own party and reigned supreme as a messiah of the masses during the election process.

As we see now, he 's a successful salesman. He may have a bloody past, his look may be hard and menacing, his words harsh and rhetorical, but he is spot on. He's unstoppable. That's Modi magic.

With Narendra Modi in power, the right-wing force in India blossoms in full.
