A Virtual Open Letter From Modi for Poor & Losers
People may look at this letter as Political strategy to get votes, some may see this as a step to convince people to join the political party but I am not writing this letter to get something from you. There is a humble request from an Indian to another Indian that at least for next ten minutes, don’t think of me as a politician or as PM but treat me as your friend at least once and read it as a letter from your best friend.
Through this letter I don’t want to address any particular community but I want to address all the all sections of the society who think themselves alone and are deprived of the basic necessities and rights of life. This letter includes the story of my past, present and reflects my future too. I am not sure whether this letter is interesting or not but I vouch you that these ten minutes may force you to set a new definition of caliber, capability and limitation.
I don’t mean to say that I’m great but such a life from Poverty to liberty is not only an example for you but for me too. That’s why I thought of sharing my experience with you. There is an advice to you all from my side, whenever you face any problem then don’t panic, no need to take useless suggestions, just have a flashback of your life, I am quite sure that you will have plethora of example where you would have crossed something more difficult than this. Do you know why I’m saying all these with such confidence because according to my learning and experience, Life is a learning process where experience is the mother of all knowledge.
I would like to start this letter from childhood days. When I was born, nobody would have thought that I will become representative and voice of more 130 crore people, PM of India. When I look back even I can’t imagine that I have traveled all this way, crossed infinite hurdles and boundary of limitations. I believe things became possible after altering limits of my capability and caliber. Yeah Of course, I had thought of doing something great for my nation just like you but literally never thought of becoming your PM but when I look back I think my life was quite interesting even though some feel that it was full of misery and criticism.
Even during your journey through Life, you will come across hundreds of people with millions of advice but don’t follow anyone blindly. In my life, I have ignored all those who tried to teach me the lessons of limitations and followed those steps who gave me lessons of being limitless. You are the only one who is going to decide your capability, caliber and limitation.
All these parameters varies from one human to another and we are the only one to decide their values. Life is full of lessons where you will learn lot of things once you will start analyzing scenarios happening around you. I didn’t go to any business school but still people say that I know management quite well . Do you know why is it so, It’s because I was poor and poverty taught me how to survive in extreme disaster, how to make optimum use of resources. It was my learning from life. Just like many of you, I had spent early days of my life in penury but now I believe that living in poverty wasn’t my weakness but it gave me lot of strength. Best thing with the people like us is that we don’t have many materialistic things to lose so we don’t need to care about the things we have. And People with such traits are capable of changing outcomes of any competition.
This journey was quite interesting as a whole as it was an amalgamation of all experiences good and bad. Being a human we all are effected by thoughts, ideas, information and vision but what is more interesting that it may impact us either in a positive way or in a negative way. Some run fast when they are criticized, blamed because they believe that they not losers and they prove this thing but others stop their race once criticized. People who quit race are giving control of their life to someone else who even doesn’t know about the race and track. There is a small story regarding this, Once Yuvraj Singh’s father took him to Navjot Singh Siddhu to give him Cricket Training. But Siddhu told Yuvraj’s father that Yuvraj doesn’t have that skills, inbuilt quality to become a cricketer so he can’t become a good cricketer and he leave this game. But Yuvi’s father never quit the race and gave him a good training. And today we know who is Yuvraj Singh. I don’t want to blame someone in this story but main theme of the story is that if Cricketer can’t judge a cricketers capability, caliber and limit then how come someone else is there is able to decide your destiny.
At last I will conclude this letter by saying if you feel that all these talks are hyperbole and not valid then I will ask you to look back at the history again. You will come across one thing “a Rich Dad’s son has not done something great, it has been always a Poor Dad’s who have done miracles, crossed limitations and I believe that they will do this again and again. Why this is so because Success doesn’t matter but what matters a lot is Success.
A topper has to never face any competition because competition starts for the people who rank after him.
