Ahmedabad: The tea corners in India are known for many intellectual political discussions. Commoners from all walks of life congregate at this point and discuss and often impose their political and social ideas on each other. Every person himself is a great orator, trying every trick from loud shouts to artistic maneuver of hands and face expressions; the only aim is to prevail over others. Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi also began his political oratory from a ‘chai’ corner that used to be the bread winner of the leader and his brother.

Today, Narendra Modi is emerging as a political icon, not only in India but internationally. But this phenomenon had a humble beginning. It took a lifetime for Modi to climb the top of the political ladder.

Narendra Modi was born to Damodardas Moolchand Modi and Heeraben Modi in Mehsana, Gujarat. Since his adolescent age, he was inclined towards politics. He joined Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) to pursue a political career and have ever since been an ardent follower of RSS ideology. So firm was his belief on RSS that in his youth only once did he return to his home after joining the saffron organisation that too when his father died.
