“Jaldi boom hogaya,” said Imran Khan, 37, sitting inside his humble house in Alwar district of Rajasthan on Saturday. Just 14 hours ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had praised his mobile applications for children and youths and told a huge audience in Wembley stadium, London, and those back home, about Imran: “My Hindustan is in Alwar’s Imran Khan.”

“It took me by surprise. Now I want to perfect and fine tune my websites and applications,” Imran said.

With over 52 mobile applications and more than a hundred websites to his name, Imran was woken up around midnight by a friend’s phone call. His wife Kashmiri switched on the television and then woke up their kids to hear what the PM himself had to say of their father.

Imran’s elder brother Ismail Khan, 47, has an explanation why the PM said so: “As a kid, Imran studied under a lantern in our village Khareda. As an adult, he had no formal education in Information Technology but was driven by curiosity; his dedication is akin to Eklavya’s.” After completing his Class XII with Mathematics in 1996, Imran enrolled in a School Teaching Course and got his first job as a government teacher in 1999.

Things changed when Imran’s younger brother Idrees handed him over his desktop computer in 2010, after completing his engineering course.

Around that time, a group of motivated government officials had also decided to set up ‘Project Ekta’. Imran’s websites were spotted by then Alwar District Collector Ashutosh A T Pednekar, who pushed him to support Project Ekta.

His Android applications range from Computer Fundamentals, General Science in Hindi, Hindi Grammar, NCERT Social Science, King of Maths, 20-20 Chemistry Quiz to Indian Political General Knowledge and Indian Constitution.

    It is a good sign that Mr. Modi had finally started the talk of inclusiveness and tolerance (though late). Personally, I don't like Modi, but being the Prime Minister of India he is the representative of all Indians. Having won with majority, we expect him to be independent, bold and determined in his vision and decisions. He can then lead the nation to unity, progress and prosperity and our hate for him can transform into to respect and love. But if he depends on the ideology of hate and division regulated by RSS, we are going NOWHERE.........

          I am not a Modi Ji's fan but by these such simple acts he changes the lives of many and that earns him lots of respect - also from people like me who still view him with a bit of suion. I really wish to hope that he shall use the rest of his time in office to show that he is a man that India can depend upon. Wish him success ~ Jai Hind

            The election results of Delhi and Bihar are testimony to the inclusiveness and tolerance of India. The nation does not want divisiveness and hopefully, the BJP must have realized this by now. Their future as a successfully ruling party only lies in the development and progress of all Indians.
