Born in a humble family in Gujarat’s Vadnagar, Modi did not have any luxury before he entered politics. Young Modi helped his father to sell tea to the customers. Later, he ran his own tea stall near the bus terminal with his brother. He was not bright in studies but his teacher thought that Modi was an excellent debater. He had keen interest in theatre and loved to take up the lead characters in the play. At a young age, he was introduced to RSS and that was the beginning of his association. Narendra Modi left his family after graduating because his family forced him to do an arranged marriage. He was engaged to a lady called Jashodaben. He married her at an early age but it did not last for long. He rejected the marriage and left his home in the year 1967. He travelled around India. He visited many religious centres all over India. After travelling for two years, he returned to Gujarat in the year 1971 and he joined RSS as a full-time worker.
When Indira Gandhi declared a state of emergency, Modi had to hide because RSS was banned during that phase. While he was hiding, he wrote a book called, ‘Sangharsh Ma Gujarat’. Modi completed his graduation from Delhi University and got a degree in Political Science. He did his Master’s from Gujarat University.
