PM Modi's speeches - a "collective" achievement
Vinod Chandrashekhar Dixit9/3/2019 10:09:44 PM
Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave his first Independence Day speech since his resounding victory after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Ever since his maiden Independence Day speech, after his first big win in 2014, Modi has done away with most of the norms and rules that his predecessors had followed. His longest Independence Day speech was the one in 2016, when he spoke for nearly 96 minutes, according to data available in the public domain.
Apart from PM Modi's leadership skills, another attribute that sets him apart from his contemporaries is his oratorical skills. It is fact that Independence Day speeches by our Prime Ministers have become a perfect platform to showcase the achievements of their government, and to reiterate their commitment developing the nation. In fact, over the course of his tenure as PM, his speeches has always earned him standing ovations and there have been number of incidents when his speeches were interrupted by rounds of applause.
One would have observed that Modi's speeches particularly Independence Day speeches are the longest carrying around 8,000 words. There is no doubt that Modi's speeches have retained the thrust on nationalism and focus on rural topics and the most arresting feature of his speeches is the theme he chooses is on removing poverty in India. Political analyst Pushpesh Pant has pointed out that "A good political speech should have an emotional charge, it should have credibility and a subtle sense of humor woven into it. Modi's speech managed all three."
Modi's speeches are a "collective achievement that still come across as uniquely individual. A good leader like Modi puts his own stamp on the speech. He is one of the most insightful and versatile speakers in India today. Every speech is different, is rich in vision and is loaded with a several anecdotes of the past. If there is one person that has caught the attention of the whole world with his public speaking - it is NaMo.
PM Modi begins his speech by softly chanting 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'. His voice gradually gets louder. He starts speaking faster. The audience is captivated. Modi's critics may laugh and also make fun of it. But this only goes to show that they are completely missing his clever tactics. He not only talks about the problems of India and about the missions of his government to solve them but also dares to talk about topics which his predecessors dared to even think about.
Modi''s charisma and oration is fifty percent inborn, that's talent given God. The rest of Fifty percent is acquired by his necessity to uphold his political position as ministers and defendant of BJP which took fifty plus years. His rivals either lack the skill or find it tasteless to attack him on his expensive watches, clothes, shoes and sunglasses. His public speeches also incessantly harp on corruption and successfully repeats the claim that he alone stands against corruption while the corrupt has ganged up against him.
If we talk about Modi's style, he uses his hands expressively during his speeches and likes to pause to await the audience reaction whenever he has posed a query or made a light hearted remark, is able to get directly across to his foreign audiences with his English speeches but his messages are important and he is a master in that. He has the audience in the palm of his hands because he is one the most popular PM has ever known and whatever he or his government does, he makes sure that the whole country. He is probably the first Prime Minister to have a twitter account of his own, a Facebook page and an Instagram account. He preached technology to his young listeners too.
He has style and creates impact with his ability to use voice modulation and we'll chosen words. He has a great ability to repeat words to make them stick and he knows well as to how to play to the gallery. Atal Bihari Vajpayee was considered to be the most admired orator of the modern times. Now after such a long gap, Modi has been a good candidate to step into their shoes. He has a high sense of understanding to address the crowd's mentality. He has also been able to project himself as a good, efficient and an able administrator. His victory speech impresses the audience with the popular image of the Hindu ascetic devoted to the nation's cause. He could grip the audience for hours together with his speech.
He has a very good vocabulary and is able to think on his feet in a logical manner. Perhaps the biggest trait of his speeches though is that he comes across as someone who is very believable, someone who will follow through and deliver on the promises, and someone who has no self-interest but only the interest of the people of India.
Good speakers like Modi open a speech with a dramatic statement and end with an impression that makes the audiences want to applaud. Modi orator skill reveals the fact that eloquence is of great importance in public life. In parliaments, it may be said to supersede many qualities. Knowledge and mastery as well as marshalling of facts are surely necessary for the parliamentarian. A man is naturally eloquent who has strength of convictions. But it is now admitted that the power of oratory is not just a gift of the gab; it is open to acquisition through devotion and can be picked up by intensive practice. It is also clear that the orator must be able to adopt his art to the needs of a situation,-to the audience and its mood.
