A BOOK ‘MANN KI BAAT : A SOCIAL REVOLUTION ON RADIO’ PUBLISHED ON PM MODI’s ‘MANN KI BAAT’ :

The preface in the book has been written by Japanese PM Shinzo Abe. He says, “Talking on a one-hour radio show once a month while addressing challenging tasks as Prime Minister requires tremendous efforts, and I cannot but feel his strong passion for dialogue with his people.” The book, Mann Ki Baat: a social revolution on Radio, is a compilation of PM Narendra Modi’s one-hour, once-a-month, radio shows.    The book marks the journey of the programme which will complete 3 years in October.   It will released on May 26 at Rashtrapati Bhawan with the first copy to be presented to President Pranab Mukherjee.  Apart from vignettes like how the name for the programme came about – Prime Minister Modi is said to have exclaimed, arre isme kya baat hai, kaho kuch halki phulki Mann ki baat karunga (why make a big fuss, it will be just a heart to heart talk) the book will also go into analytics on what was followed up in terms of feedback from listeners, and even has chapter on how the phrase Mann Ki Baat has entered the political lexicon in order to mock Prime Minister Modi.   The Rediff.com : 25th.
