                              Bharat Mata's proud son will continue to be protected. May Maa Shakti give more power to Modi ji to make India a better place to live;may Maa Shakti bless him to save this nation. What Adi Shankara,Shivaji,Swami Vivekananda did earlier is now being fone by Modi ji. Chrislamists will face defeat.
