The overwhelming mandate of the 2014 general election was indeed a mandate for national self assertion. For almost four decades now, Bharat has been on the verge of taking a leap towards a glorious future, a destiny awaited for long. But the potential never unfolded. The largest democracy remained a land of untapped potential. One of the prime factors in this repeated underachievement in all the fields was lack of national identity. No people in the whole world are as confused as a nation as Bharat is. The unimaginable and even unexpected political support Modi could garner in these elections is the result of national urge of the people to get out of this confusion and assert themselves as a strong nation. With the first few steps the Modi Government has moved decisively in the direction of addressing this concern. Decisions like speaking in Hindi with foreign delegates are indicators of the political will. After all it is not mere popular grandstanding but a proper shift in the political stand that produces results. Creation of national will is a task rooted more in the intent than in the impact.
