Though we live in rather secluded hattis in a place called the Nilgiris , surrounded on all sides by blue mountains, what happens in Delhi and Chennai,[I am talking about the POLITICAL CHURNING after the general elections 2014], affects us directly.
Our wish of Narendra Modi becoming the PM of the country has come true.
Now, we wish, the following comes true in the central cabinet formation :
- General VK Singh – Defence Minister,
- Arun Jaitley – Home Minister,
- Arun Shourie – Finance Minister,
- Ravi Shanker Prasad – Law minister,
- Meenakshi Lekhi and Smriti Irani – important portfolios

Modi’s Nilgiri Connection
Shri. Kuniyil Kailashnathan, popularly known as KK, who was a trusted aide of Prime Minister designate Shri. Narendra Modi for nearly a decade and now widely expected to play a key role in the new Prime Minister’s Office is a proud son of the Nilgiris’ soil.
Son of a Post Master who served in the Nilgiris for many years, KK had his schooling and graduation in Ooty. KK also married from the Nilgilris and educated his children in the district. He is a batch mate of another son of the soil, Dr. N. Sundaradevan, former Additional Chief Secretary of Tamil Nadu.
One of the architects of the ‘Gujarat model’ of rapid and inclusive economic development, Shri.Kailashnathan held a number of key infrastructure positions in the government of Gujarat that impressed Shri. Modi. As the chief executive officer of Gujarat Maritime Board, Kailashnathan was instrumental in privatisation of ports. He served as Ahmedabad’s municipal commissioner and also principal secretary in the Gujarat Urban Development department. Shri. Kailashnathan played a key role in setting up the drinking water pipeline grid in Gujarat which Shri. Modi showcased in his political rallies.
Privileged to always fly with Shri. Modi to his meetings, Shri. Kailashnathan is one of Shri. Modi’s powerful speech writing team. After his retirement as Additional Chief Secretary of Gujarat, Shri.Kailashnathan has been functioning as the Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Shri. Modi.
We hope the Nilgiris will get due attention, care and development under the formidable ‘Modi-Jaya’ regime.
