Narendra Modi

Bangalore: It was out of blues that a webpage ‘’ came up on July 17th 2013. The anonymous developer had featured a picture of Narendra Modi and a ‘Get Details’ link on the page to give insights to how Modi would run the country if he was elected as the Prime Minister. Amidst the booming traffic, the creator surrendered within a day with an ‘I quit’ message. The tone of his voice gave a clear feeling of fright, maybe because of the thought that he would be traced down as the link scored 60,000 hits in just 20 hours and had the potential to go viral.

But now, two young techies from Mumbai had gathered courage and dared to raise the site again. Alexander Gounder and Vidyut Kale, the former a web designer and the later a blogger says that they only knew that there were some content in the website that pissed off people and had no clue what was there before. The dual says “We found this domain orphaned and the thought that ideas must not die out of fear” and added that they have no opposition in anyone merging own individual ideas together with theirs.

Alexander says that there are many who praise Modi and had questioned him on his decision to resurrect the webpage. “The other side needs to be heard but is often silenced one way or another, besides a lot of people asked me to resurrect the site so I bought the domain” adds Alex as reply for his act. Kale responded that “If people are stupid enough to go nuts, then we must drive them nuts and put some ads on the page to profit from their stupidity. She adds that it is not all about the money but the basic principle that if people start to live a predictable life and do not crack out from the mould anyone can drain money. The new website ends with a statement thanking the visitors adding that the advertisements on the page funds their coffee.
