Gujarati people are known for their entrepreneurship for centuries. There are many countries which is solely dependent on Gujarati trader and entrepreneurs as far as their economical survival is concerned. when Edie Amin ran away Gujarati trader his successor Yusufu Lule urged Gujarati traders to returned to Uganda so that their economic situation return to normalcy. Even in most developed countries like US, UK, Germany and other big nation too is dependent on Gujarati people. In a big country like United States, atleast One million Gujarati are contributing towards betterment of US, in United Kingdom most powerful community among Gujarati, Patel community is looking after hotel business and they are so dominant and famous that people have started calling hotel as a “Motel”, such a dominant force Gujarati.
Industrialization of India was started by Dadabhai Navroji way back in 16th century. Even in Forbes top 10 list you will find atleast one or two people featured are Gujarati. If one look at the current industrialists you will find Gujarati leading them by a fair margin. Mukesh and Anil Ambani of Reliance group, Nusli Wdia of Bombay Dyeing, Tatas and Godrej all are Gujarat based industrialist. Today in India industry are flooded by Gujarati people. In a nutshell Gujarati are born entrepreneur, they just don’t need teaching from anybody, Gujarati will seldom do a job, because it is not in their blood.
Ever since Narendra Modi has taken a rein of state of Gujarat he and his colleagues have started accrediting every developmental work in the name of Modi. Is it fair to accredit every thing to just one person?, no, certainly no because when country as a whole developing at a brisk pace, it is not surprising at all that Gujarat is leading them. In fact what Modi has done is giving red carpet welcome to all Indian and foreign investors. Is that means better opportunity for youth to get employment, is all this has benefited rural area of Gujarat, did rural are got better infrastructures? all these question has a negative reply. So there is a clear division between urban and rural Gujarat. Even minorities are coerced and threatened, Muslims are considered as a second class citizens and even Sikhs are targeted in a well reported incident in Kutch area when Gujarat govt forced 500 odd Sikhs to sell their land and returned to their home state of Punjab.
Whatever Modi or Modi supporters say “Modi mania” is nothing but a HOAX.
