It is not appropriate to discuss someone's personal life. But this man, Modi, is touted to be the main opposition party's Prime minister candidate. So there is some news about him that media hasn't talked big time about.
Here's the news:
Narendra Modi is one of the most controversial, yet successful leaders of India. He is currently serving as the Chief Minister of Gujarat. There is quite a high probability that he will be elevated for the Prime Ministerial candidate of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) for 2014 general election.
Ever since the unfortunate Gujarat riots of 2002, Narendra Bhai Modi has always remained a matter of strong media introspection. Even though he was given a ‘near clean-chit’ by the Supreme Court appointed and Raghvan led SIT, he was still targeted for allegedly orchestrating the Gujarat riots.
He continues to lead Gujarat with amazing administrative skills. Currently, Gujarat is the most developed state of India. Narendra Modi deserves credit for this development. Recently, the TIME magazine featured him on the cover taking his name to the global audience.
Narendra Modi is Married!
Contrary to popular perception, Narendra Bhai Modi is not a bachelor. He was married at the age of 17. His wife Jasodaben was just 14 year old. There is no record of his marriage, but roughly it might have happened in 1967 (Modi was born in 1950).
The custom of child marriage in India was prevalent during those days. However, the same custom didn’t allow Modi to see his wife as the personal meeting between two was only possible after a special ceremony. That ceremony, Gauna –second marriage, never happened as Narendra Modi got attracted towards RSS and decided to remain ‘bachelor’ for his life. Hence, Narendra Modi is a bachelor, but he is certainly not unmarried. Despite being married he religiously followed celibacy.
His wife also decided to remain bachelor for the whole life. Jasodaben is now a retired school teacher and single. During the Gujarat Assembly election 2007, Open Magazine found her and tried to get her interviewed. According to the report, she was not allowed to talk with her. What happened later can definitely be doubted as when it comes to Narendra Modi you can't believe the words of majority of Indian English Media. It is said that Jasodaben is quite happy for her husband.
Narendra Modi never uttered a single word about his marital status. The silence of Modi, sometimes, give credence to this theory. The 2012 Assembly Election also saw this issue coming into the fore - first because of verbal battle between Tharoor and Modi, and later because of an illogical and irrational statement by Digvijay Singh.
It is also a fact that none of his family members are enjoying the facilities that come with being in the family of the Chief Minister. Narendra Modi lives in the Chief Minister house alone. His family members live in their ancestral home. Modi is closest to his mother, but she also lives in the ancestral home. Modi always make visit there to get the blessings of his mother.
