He is fully aware of the feelings of the people.

Dr. Jitendra Singh on the occasion narrated some interesting stories. He said that the first thing that came to his mind was the unique phenomenon of Narendra Modi that can be described by a single sentence that he had caught the imagination of the people not only the people of India but of the entire world. "I have also been a writer of a sort. I have written a couple of books. But a publisher however noble he is would come forward to publish a book only if there are buyers readers and this means there is a huge readership for Modi in China", said Dr. Jitendra Singh, who also holds MoS PMO portfolio.

Modi And His World View: Mr Tarun Vijay's book:
Modi- Rise of A New Star, first ever book on Modi in
Chinese language was released by Dr. Jitendra Singh, MoS PMO 
"The kind of persona that we see of shri Narendra Modi ji today is off course sometimes very impressive also seems very heroic. But very of first know that it has evolved in a very natural course for example for a small aspect of him is his wearing a half sleeve kurta, which is became craze all over the world. A very few of us would know that he did not start wearing because of fashion. He did because he used to wash his clothes for himself. And therefore he found it easier to have an outfit which was half sleev both in terms of washing and when wearing it not soiling it. But because of his deeds his commitments, this too became a phenomenon". Modi And His World Views: Mr. Tarun Vijay's book; Modi- Rise of A New Star

"In his earlier days, I remember he would say that in Gujarat there is no winter but when he used to come to Delhi and would drive on a scooter, he would put newspaper sheets under his shirt to keep away the cold breeze and he would tell us that it is a very good protection like a warmer inside. So he is a man who has grown up by actually defeating  all the other adversities, hostilities, anti currents that all came his way.  And the manner he came over all these difficulties actually assumed the form of a phenomenon", Dr. Jitendra overwhelmed the audience by his narration.
"To many of the ordinary workers and karyakarta and across the party lines, even in other political parties, he infact has paved the way for an ordinary worker,karyakarta like me to fight a way into the Indian political system. Indian Political system was for a long time under the incidence of feudalistic dynasty preferences. And I always ask myself for an ordinary political worker like me who came from a village where most of the people never seen a train in their life and a letter reach after 14 days and that too the postman would carry the letter when if he has two three letters otherwise he would not all that botheration". 

"It is primarily the phenomenon of the Modi that has paved the way for those who have commitment, who have something to offer in this political system. So I think that is the contribution Mr. Modi has made to the entire democratic set up of this region. Because, this reagion is still in phase of evolving the democracy. And this is beautifully brought out in this book".

The more you get to know about Mr. Modi, the more you realize that more you ought to know Mr. Modi. To put it in the simple sentence. Because he has  gone through so much, evolved through so much and had had such a wide range of experience that for the single human being it is always not possible to go through all that and therefore the learning never ends.

"One of the very recent thing which I learned from him last year was that he has no problem with the acclimatization. So when Tarun Vijay ji was referring about his sojourn in Himalaya, he can fly from Delhi at 7 in the morning to a height of 15000 feet, go around also deliver a lecture, conduct a meeting and come back to 5000 feet and by 3 o’clock back in Delhi. Ordinarily, any one of us travelling like that would have to take a rest to get used to the altitude, Dr Jitendra Singh recounts".

"That is why when he go abroad he is looked up by even the mightiest head of the states because  when they shake hands with him, they know it is not only Modi it is somebody whom the largest democratic population of the country has almost unanimously voted him to be the head".

Dr. Jitendra Singh, who is an MP from Udhampur in J&K recounts an incident when Srinagar faced floods, "I am an early riser and had a habbit of moving out so to have a look what is happening because the entire city was in the water small little children belonging to a place which is known as Tarun Vijay ji is a old hand in Kashmir and Ladakh a place known to be a hub of secessionism, when I would move out small children would tease me because I was camping in Srinagar for a number of days and they knew that he is representative from New Delhi camping over there. So they did not know how to tease me so the best way to tease me was they would run after me they would say Modi Modi Modi Modi Modi Modi Modi like that. And I felt so proud actually and I told myself look here this is a place where many believes that the presence of India itself sometime causes discomfiture and here is small children little children who think the best way to tease me is to run behind me and say Modi Modi Modi. So he has become a unifying force across the country and a country like India which has diversity of culture, diversity of religions". 

"A political party here acceptable, there is not acceptable. Somebody acceptable in North not acceptable in South, some in east not in west, Modi has come a unifying cord. I think that has never become in all these 68 years of Independence. And that has actually prove the strength of India to the rest of the world", he said in his speech.

Former Ambassador to China, TCA Rangachari surprised the audience while speaking in fluent Chinese, "I want to recall to you what Prime Minister has said during his visit to China last year the 20th century will depend on what China and India do by themselves and what they do together". I think today's function organised to release his book, this is the method to promote greater understanding between the people of the two countries so that we know each other better and through that knowledge and understanding we are able to work together better for ourselves for peace in our continent and for peace in world at large".    

Ambassador Le Yucheng echoed the words of Tarun Vijay who is trying to promote friendship between the two nations that the soul of India and China must meet. "I couldn’t admit more. As major countries in Asia- Pacific and the largest developing Country, China and India has lot in common and most to offer to each other. I am of the opinion, its time to discover each other, embrace each other and learn from each other", said Chinese Ambassador Le Yucheng
