The English translation of the collection of Narendra Modis poems that hit the stands Sunday gives a glimpse of his mind on a range of subjects from renunciation to Hinduism, love, honeybee, and Kargil, among others. My faith is not at the expense of anothers; it adds to the comfort of my fellow man, writes Modi in one of the poems. In another, he says, No one is the enemy: we are all friends, this is our character. In yet another, he says, There is a deep, evil trench; hatred of man, for man made it; I want to become a bridge; I come bearing the purpose of love. What is apparently metaphysics may seem politics to his political rivals!
