Ok, so this one is what the world won’t be able to relate with Narendra Modi as of today. In this Sakshibhaav poem Narendra Modi is talking about technology. It is that moment, when the telephone was introduced in India. Just like a real observer, he has observed how the telephone is working? What impact it is creating? During the election of 2014, he has stirred the nation with the use of technology, but the day when the initial phase of technology was introduced in India, the poetic heart inside him raised many questions.
Technology is central to Development. It touches one and all, and is an important instrument of our national progress: PM

How length and breadth of this world is getting reduced
Man-made instruments has created an artificial nearness
Things those are happening thousands of miles away
Can be seen just in front of you
And this distant sound sounds so dear
This small instrument can make us feel so near
But this instrument has a limitation
Nearness can be made possible with the instruments
It can create a hallucination of nearness
But can they create an environment of togetherness
Can it identify the real togetherness?
Or can it become a medium to maintain the togetherness?
The Postal system is getting outdated now
Feelings reflected in the words in the letter
Has now no scope of being reflected
And the biggest fact of today
Letters have been a medium to prove the
Correctness of the history
Whereas today in every little matter telephone
Has taken the place
Anyways, the telephone has become a medium to
Bring life in life
Even in a huge mob, when someone calls out “ai”
Then a human will definitely look back
Because there is always “me” existence in a human
His ears are eager to listen
That someone near to him is calling him in such huge crowd too
This thing can also bring happiness
It can bring a kind of satisfaction
But what if that voice is not for him
It is very natural that lines on the face changes immediately
And if that voice is for you
Then a hope of happiness passes through the entire existence
But does the voice on the telephone has the same strength to stir up the subconscious of a person
Is it just a feeling less exchange of information?
Or is there anything more to it?
Anyways, the voice and the words together create a thought
But they are not that equipped to equally communicate the emotions of hearts.
This is an interesting answer to the whole world, who has acclaimed Narendra Modi as the most technology friendly PM. A PM who makes the most efficient use of the technology. But a poet, who loves to express his thoughts through words has many questions about this new invention. He as an observer has very well put forth his point of treasuring the history and getting proofs of history in the form of the letters sent during those days and how telephone can be the proof of present time (1986). Narendra Modi as a poet has explained every aspect of telephone and personal talk. He has raised questions on how a telephone will communicate the feelings and how a person can identify himself or is telephone so equipped to communicate feelings of a person.
Seeing today’s scenario, we can see that the world has changed. People spend hours on the telephone. Even Narendra Modi has accepted the use of telephone, mobile and all the latest technology far ahead, then time, along with huge responsibilities. But that poetic heart must be always wishing to write a letter to express his words. No wonder he is still finding time to drop his thoughts with pen on paper. His love for technology is known across the world, but he was also skeptical about the use of technology, when it comes to expression of feelings. Technology has advanced a lot and so has Narendra Modi. This is what is called as accepting the change and walking with the trends.
