I was charmed by Narendra Modi when he was the Prime Ministrial candidate for his party BJP. But I was not sure about him since I did not know him well. But after reading this book I am convinced that Indian electorate’s decision to vote him to power was the right thing. Modiji is really a great motivation for those aspiring leadership roles in real life.
