BRAJ : Narendra Modi's Visit to Mathura

Brajam basante navaneet chauram brajangananam cha dukul chauram.
Anek janmarjit pap chauram chauragraganyam purusham namami.

(One who steals butter and the attire of Braj women lives in Braj. He also steals the sins accumulated in various births. I pay my respect to the supreme thief.)

The couplet cited above quintessentially describes the uniqueness of Krishna’s character. Who could have ever imagined that even a proclaimed thief might command such a universal love and respect? He never shies away from telling lies yet He is a paragon of virtues. He is a lover par excellence, a divine hero, a most trustworthy and caring friend, an astute politician and a great philosopher.

With real estate development at its epitome in Mathura, the birthplace of Lord Krishna seems to have a shining future. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to set his foot on the holy land on the first anniversary of the NDA Government, May 25, 2015. As per the programme, he will visit the birthplace of Late Deendayal Upadhyaya, the forerunner of the present day Bharatiya Janata Party. Born in 1916 in the village Chandrabhan, 26 kilometers from Mathura, Deendayal Upadhyaya was a renowned philosopher, economist, sociologist, historian, journalist, and political scientist.

After paying tribute to the revered icon, Narendra Modi will perhaps address the public. The locals of Mathura are anticipating several schemes to be announced by the Prime Minister to further the developmental process and for the welfare of the common masses. The Braj has recently been gifted with two plans namely ‘Swadesh Darshan’ and ‘Prasad’. A proposal to relive the rich heritage of the sacred Braj region by means of interactive light-and-sound concerts is also under consideration.

Mathura has witnessed revolutionary real estate development over the past few decades. Not only has it raised the standard of living of the individuals but also has created employment opportunities within the city itself. SHRI Group, one of the leading corporates in the arena, has attracted the attention of investors ranging from middle class to the elite class. A hub for foreign tourists and celebrities, Mathura has emerged as a strategically important city of the Western Uttar Pradesh
