Read Now My dear countrymen, Namaskar. This journey has reached its 50th episode today. Thus, this Golden Jubilee Episode is indeed gilt-edged in every sense of the term. Your letters and phone calls this time pertain mostly to these 50 episodes. They are of the view that broadly speaking, their Prime Minister being associated with the latest in technology, Social Media and Mobile Apps; WHY did he choose radio as a medium to connect with his countrymen?
Your curiosity is but natural; in this age when Radio was fading into oblivion, why did Modi opt for the airwaves? Let me quote an incident. The year was I was then a party worker with the Bharatiya Janata Party organization in Himachal.
It was the month of May; and I was travelling to a certain place. Evenings tend to get cold in the hilly terrain of Himachal Pradesh, and I stopped by at a wayside tea stall and placed an order for tea. He was not even adequately clad; it was a standalone kiosk on the edge of the road.

At times Mann Ki Baat is also sneered at but crore countrymen ever occupy a special pleace in my heart. Their hearts and my heart beat to the same rhythm. Mann Ki Baat is not about the Government it is about the society.
Mann Ki Baat addresses an aspirational India, an ambitious India. Politics or Political Power are not intrinsic to the Indian ethos; on the contrary social values and society are. In fact, Politics is one of the numerous other aspects of social life.Educated, Ethnically Diverse, Individualistic.

A simple display of respect like offering the elderly a seat on the bus is being replaced by scenarios. The Indian island where a young American was killed last week has been cut off from the world for thousands of years, with islanders enforcing their.
