Today is the birthday of a very great personality. He is not only well known for his amazing oratorical skills but also a very popular and an imminent figure in the global history. His leadership skills are unmatchable, and his courage speaks volumes of his dedication and patriotism towards the country. He’s one of the best Prime Ministers of India. Yes, he’s none other than Shri. Narendra Modi. I wish our Honorable Prime Minister, a very happy birthday.
Shri. Narendra Modi was born as Narendra Damodardas Modi on 17 September 1950 at Vadnagar, Gujarat. He was the third of six children born to Damodardas Mulchand Modi (c. 1915–1989) and Hiraben Modi (born c. 1920). He finished higher secondary education in Vadnagar in 1967. He joined as balswayamsevak (junior cadet) in the RSS when he was eight with the help of Lakshmanrao Inamdar, popularly known as Vakil Saheb. Modiji got betrothed and married to Jasodaben when he was 18 and she was 17. But he preferred to live a life of an ascetic. Swami Vivekanand inspired him and he started visiting Hindu ashrams founded by Swami Vivekananda: the Belur Math near Kolkata, followed by the Advaita Ashrama in Almora and the Ramakrishna Mission in Rajkot. The Belur Math and Ramakrishna Ashram in Almora didn’t accept him but that didn’t stop him from travelling back to Gujarat via Delhi and Rajasthan in 1968–69. He stayed briefly at Vadnagar before going to live with his uncle in Ahmedabad in 1970 where he served tea in the latter’s canteen at the Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation.
Modiji renewed his acquaintance with Inamdar, who was based at the Hedgewar Bhavan (RSS headquarters) in the city. He joined a Jana Sangh Satyagraha in Delhi led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 1971 for the Bangladesh Liberation War. He also quit working in the canteen to become a full time Pracharak for RSS.
The RSS assigned him to BJP in 1985. He helped to organize the campaign for BJP for the municipal elections in Ahmedabad in 1987 which BJP won due to his effective campaigning. He became the organising secretary for the Gujarat unit of the BJP in 1987. He became the member of the BJP’s National Election Committee in 1990, and helped to organize Advaniji’s Rath Yatra. Modiji ‘s electoral strategy ensured the BJP victory in the 1995 Gujarat state assembly elections.
Modiji rose to the ranks of being BJP national secretary and transferred to New Delhi in November 1995. He went on to become BJP ‘sgeneral secretary (organisation) in May 1998, after ensuring BJP win in the elections. He served as the the chief minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014. He won the 2014 electric comfortably to become the Prime Minister of India, earning the reputation of being the longest serving prime minister from outside the Indian National Congress and also the first Prime Minister who was born after Indian Independence.
His greatest achievements:

He took a bold step with the Abrogation of
Article 370 which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
