It is prime minister Narendra Modi all the way in the 2017 calendar released by the government of India.

It is akin to sycophancy displayed by Congress leader Dev Kant Barooah who proclaimed “India is Indira. Indira is India”.

The first photograph is of a muffler-clad Modi talking to a group of young women, while the second one shows him handing over rickshaws. The third is of Modi meeting a woman handloom weaver and the fourth shows him wearing a hard hat as he walk on a factory floor. The fifth has Modi spinning the charkha and the sixth is of the prime minister interacting with elderly Gandhi-topi clad men.

Half of the year is over and there is more.

The seventh photograph is of a smiling Modi with tribals and the eighth shows a parka-clad prime minister with soldiers. The ninth picture has Modi superimposed on what looks like digital transaction being carried out in the background and a man animatedly talking on a mobile phone. The 10th photograph shows Modi wielding the broom, indicating his pet project Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.

We also have Modi striding out of parliament in the month of November. As the year draws to a close, Modi is seen pushing the wheelchair of a disabled person.
