Sakshibhaav : MataNi Murti – 3

Since independence, it has been discussed that Indian political platform is insensitive. Citizens have also witnessed the same thing that the government was insensitive towards their pain. India and Indians were hoping for someone, who can understand their feelings and act for the nation. At the time of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, it was a prevalent statement from him that a very good man at a very wrong place. Here in India, the political platform needed a person who can rule, at the same time understands people and above all withstand all diversities and the worst part of Indian politics, not working and not letting others work attitude.

In words of Narendra Modi in 1986

I wish to connect the world with the platform of feelings

I wish to understand the pain of all

I wish to sacrifice the feeling of being me

That is the reason, I ask you

That’s why I have not received such intensity forever?

See mother, thinking of the moments of waiting

Is also making my inner conscious so uneasy

Is it necessary to have the essence of such continuous inner tremble

Should be Just like the butter?

Then how will it induce my conscious for not getting connected?

I wish to create that unattached emotion

With compassionate touch of my feelings

I wish to induce a feelingly plant of emotions in dry and barren feelings of people.

I wish to inspire dreams in the eyes of the people,

Who have stopped dreaming?

I wish to induce movement in the legs

Which are numb

I wish to oscillate waves in the ocean, which is calm and chilled

Without emotions

Hey mother, I am waiting for my total dedication

Hey mother, I am waiting for the infinite expansion of self

Hey mother, being my own self

Hey mother, I wish to bath in the stream of feelings

Just like a kiddo

And getting wet with feelings in every moment


Just from the poem itself from the pen of Narendra Modi in 1986, we can make out that the change was created by the Universe.

We can observe in his world, his intentions. Can we imagine that he has found out his self? Has he become so strong to dedicate himself totally to the nation and for the people? The way he has worked in Gujarat for 13 years and the way he is working right now, we can see the total dedication towards the nation.

This can be the answer to the people who keeps on asking from where he is gathering so much of energy to travel immensely, attend meetings and get the positive things done for India.It is the practice of years and total faith and dedication of years have now cultivated as an effort to put his wishes into action.

The people of India lost faith in the government. No ears were hearing the plea. India is witnessing a 360 degree revolution in the working pattern of the government. Though complains are there. But the eyes have started dreaming, people have started dreaming again. The world is witnessing that Indian politics is under reformation phase.

A person, who has seen the dearth of poverty and pain of living as a common man can only understand the pain of other people. Staying among the people and being from a very poor family Narendra Modi has seen and experienced all these very well. We see a very sensitive person, Narendra Modi through his poems. It is a journey of 30 years or perhaps more to reach this position. The thoughts were conveyed to  the Universe through these poems and the Universe has given him the reign of the nation to work out the process of reduction of pain of waiting for a change in India.

Sakshibhaav : MataNi Murti – 2

After illustrating the instances of wait with three illustrations Narendra Modi is further expressing his thoughts on overall life of a human and how a human keeps on waiting in hope of achieving something. Sometimes it turns out to be a good wait, sometimes it turns out to be painful. Many a times, wait imprints a bitter experience of life. Let us read it in words of Narendra Modi himself, Sakshibhaav in English

But moments of wait are

A strong expression of emotions of any human

This is the only thermometer to measure the strength of emotions

It exemplifies the high and lows of life

This emotion of feelings becomes an ocean

And start oscillating the whirls of feelings

The high and low rises at a time just like dance of Shiva

The waiting person can feel the living world around him

With all his existence

Sometimes the wait burns him

Sometimes it makes him uneasy

Have you ever sat in the cool breeze of a fully blooming tree?

Have you ever experienced the heat of burning desires even after sitting in cool breeze?

Every inch of a tree is involved in your pain

In an effort to show compassion towards you

All its branches will try to lower down to you

Emotions of your wait also effects and makes the tree uneasy

And the moment when the wait is over

Meeting the person after the long wait

Try to see the nature around you

Putting yourself somewhat away from yourself.

You will witness flowers dancing

Leaves singing

And branches swinging with joy

But for witnessing all these

You would need a strength in your waiting efforts

Making an effort to view all this is useless

It is a natural process

It is an evidence of untiring travel

That is the reason waiting is much more painful

Then forever parting from someone

Hey mother, I like to live in the emotional world of

Feelings and emotions

In the verge of struggle of expanding myself

Such feelings are not being suppresses, just wish to ensure

Or is it that the intensity of such feelings increases with me

Hey mother, if the supply of emotions and feelings is limited

As gifted by God

Where and how would I be able to distribute them all?

How many of my dear ones would be able to feel my emotions of all my feelings for them?


A real poetic Narendra Modi is seen in the stanza here. He is expressed his feelings of waiting with trees, leaves and flowers. He has expressed his belief in life in the universe and the whole universe flows as an energy. He has discussed that the moment the wait is over, you should see that the world around is also equally happy just like dancing flowers and singing trees. It is very good illustration just like a happy man can make many other people associated in his life happy. A person who can detach himself from the happiness of achievement and have an eye on the things happening around himself can notice that creation of universe are also happy with him.

The ups and downs in life faced with a hope in eyes of a person are illustrated in form of oceanic waves and trees. Narendra Modi then diverts the discussion towards his own feelings. He is afraid that the emotional Narendra Modi will not fade away in struggle of achieving things in life. He wishes to distribute all his feelings among his near and dear ones. We will see in the next stanzas, what his actual feelings are and how he is relating things to his near ones.

While going through sakshibhaav, I truly feel that only a poetic heart can understand human emotions with such indepth. He has not only understood the emotions, but explained them in his poetic imaginative way. Sometimes it leads me to think that why he dint write things directly and jotted down poems with such beautiful illustrations to discuss with Maa Jagdamba?

But when a person is synced with rhythm of nature his words start flowing with pen and emotions get deepened with compassion. Such was the case with Indian PM Narendra Modi.

Sakshibhaav : Mata Ni Murti

Sakshibhaav : Mata Ni Murti Poem is very long expression of hopes, a light of fulfilling desires and then a sudden swipe to demolish all the dreams. Any person would totally break down in such circumstances. Narendra Modi opted to seek intervention of the divine power then to break down. Just like a Karma Yogi, he kept on doing his work and discussing his problems with his divine powers.

If fields are Dry and dull

If Soil is burnt with heat

In this situation, if the clouds start gathering In the sky

How many would start developing hopes

People would start dreaming with new, big and small dreams

But what if these clouds get shattered with a huge blow of wind

Oh, what difficult moment it would be?

A moment when a kid leaves from school for home

And a mother waiting for her kid to arrive

What an incomparable wait it is

Feet of mother keeps on bouncing between the home and verandah

After looking at every corner

A mother is not even able to visualize the crowded street

Her eyes keeps on looking only for her kid

Her ears are eager to hear “mother” from her kid

Do you know the eagerness to hear this?

Yes, this is the moment for eager ear

And what if the wait elongates by some seconds

Even the most silent moments become uneasy

Fast heartbeats of a mother can shake walls too

Her legs keep on moving

Her eyes become still with many possibilities

Wait and pain becomes the same

Yes, this is the intensity of waiting

Every human has same intensity of waiting

Maybe there is mild change in the intensity

Perhaps the expression is different

Maybe just like a newlywed bride, the pain of waiting is inexplicable


A pain of wait is very well expressed in the first part of this poem. Narendra Modi is a real poet heart with great observation. He has linked a wait of a mother for her kid. When a mother knows that her kid reaches home by particular time, she starts waiting for him. But if the wait becomes slightly elongated, she becomes so much worried for her kid. Her waiting turns out to be an anxious moment of pain, long thoughts of something unwanted happening. A mother always wishes to hear her kid’s voice after some interval of time. Narendra Modi has understood the pain of a mother, who is waiting for her kid.

Same are the feelings of a newly wedded bride, who is waiting for her groom after marriage. A girl who is just married eagerly waits for her groom to spend some time together after passing through huge rituals, gatherings and ceremonies and meetings. This waiting moments for a bride is like passing of an era.

He has also illustrated farmers waiting for rain after hot summer or drought, when the earth is burnt. The moment of hope building with the clouds and then the hopes shattering with a blow of wind.

Narendra Modi has illustrated these three forms of waiting in his poem. He has very well picked up the illustrations of normal life and put them in his words to best explain what waiting is and what can be the after effects of an elongated wait period. How terrible it is to wait? Even when a person is willing to achieve certain goals, he keeps on waiting and then sometimes losing the patience.

Narendra Modi might have some wish in his mind for which he is waiting to be fulfilled. To explain his desires and hopes to the divine, he has taken the illustration of farmers, mother and newly wedded bride.

We can further find out his poetic expression of the emotions in the sections ahead. Poetic expression of Narendra Modi once again proves that India and life in India is based on emotions. A PM who can understand emotions of the people can only work in getting better life for his people.
