One of the truly enigmatic personalities on the contemporary Indian political canvas, Narendra Damodardas Modi is difficult to ignore. From his humble beginnings as a RSS pracharak to his rise in the Hindutva ranks, and from being Bharatiya Janata Party's master planner to one of the its most popular and controversial state chief ministers, Modi's mantra of change and development is gradually finding many takers.Though he evokes vastly different reactions among the citizens for his alleged role during the Godhra aftermath, what is absolutely clear is that he indeed is racing towards the centre stage, making the 2014 General Elections look more like a Presidential system - where, you either vote for him or against him. And that, as they say, is the Modi effect. Kingshuk Nag paints the most vivid portrait of the extraordinary politician who is poised to take on a new role in the coming years.

The saga of Narendra Damodardas Modi is the story of how money, religion, beliefs and rising aspirations combined to change the course of Indian politics and economy in the last twenty years.'

'But what kind of a prime minister will Narendra Modi make? ?Considering that Modi has been chief minister of one state, even if for three terms, there are no easy answers to that question. ... But one thing is clear: Narendra Modi will provide a complete contrast to Manmohan Singh. Quiet, virtually silent, Manmohan Singh, shares with Modi a rural background, but has read at top universities of the world and had huge international exposure as finance minister, governor of RBI, and finance secretary to the Government of India. Modi does not have the benefit of all this experience. But unlike Manmohan, Modi is a dyed-in-the-wool politician. Also unlike Manmohan, whose image is that of a prime minister continually making compromises, Modi is voluble and firm.'
