Words flow from thought. Thought comes from personality. Personality is an indication of character. Words therefore reflect character in many ways.
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi
, 62, has embarked on a journey that could lead him to renown or ruin. Were he to convince enough voters to choose the BJP
in the next General Election, he would have his moment. Should he fail, he'll take the party down with him.
Glory is tricky. It works best when it comes as byproduct of something one does. It doesn't work quite so well when it is the only goal to strive for.
Modi's words at least have a purpose. He seeks to tarnish the reputation of the Congress party in as savage a manner as he can summon. He seems to believe that the best opponent is a crushed opponent.
