However, it is a tough feat in this day and age to capture the attention of a listener in the modern age of cellphones, pagers, BlackBerries and notepads. However, few leaders of neo-India possess the rare attributes of excellent oration; fearless attitude and a direct connect with every member of the audience. Such is the charisma of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, addressing a group of 1,900 overseas Indians having come from 60 countries at this year’s Pravasi Bharatiya Divas.
