Good Evening friends,
Being Amadavadi and Gujarati I am so exited with the vibrant Gujarat. Our Chieft Minister Narandra Modi did lots of effort to make it happen that delegates from 30 countries are going to take part in vibrant Gujarat. I am sure person who can understand the effort our CM and government doing to bring my state up. Keep it up Sir Narandra Modi. We all love you and we all with you.
When Narendra Modi sat with his think-tank in early August to plan the Vibrant Gujarat show in January 2009, the one issue which was discussed most extensively was foreign participation. For, FDI constituted a meager one per cent of the total investment pledged during the summit in 2007. Just about a dozen companies came on exploratory trips then.
This time, however, the world is opening up to a vibrant Gujarat which had slid in the world’s view after the 2002 riots. Nearly 400 foreign delegates from 30 countries are arriving, most of them looking for business opportunities. Nearly 60 companies from around the world will participate. There will also be an army of diplomats and parliamentarians who are warming up to Gujarat and Modi for the first time.
The reason is simple. Modi has been able to market Gujarat as an excellent investment destination even in this age of global meltdown. His officials and ministers went on tours to several corners of the world, hard-selling the state and its pivotal location along the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC).
Modi himself met envoys and consuls in separate meetings in Delhi and Mumbai in October 2008. Even some envoys from European Union (EU) nations, which do not allow Modi to visit their countries, were present at these meetings.
The list of participants gives out a clear trend of a changing perception about Gujarat. Where governments are still reluctant to be seen in Modi’s company, conglomerates are rushing to sign MoUs. In a couple of cases, while the governments are taking time to warm up themselves, they are sending in parliamentary delegations to get a feel of a new Gujarat.

Good Evening friends,
Monday and also first day of month. Last week was so bad cuz of Mumbai attack. I like to know how day was for you all my friends.
For me it was as is, started with my morning walk, then went to drop my son to school and than I came to office. I am still in the office and it’s around 8-40 pm. I am going home soon. So, I must say it’s end of a normal, busy, roution working day without having any effect or impact of Mumbai event.
It might be reflected in politics. Many politician resign and FM become HM and PM is having FM charges. Industry is excited to have PM as new FM. Let’s see how it work and how it’s going to help businessman as well as common man that’s CM.
