Namo in Indian ancient language, Sanskrit, means “ venerated” or ‘homage’. Namo is also short for Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India.
He unfailingly believes that the final summit is always within reach. And if not, find the crack in the rock to hang on and pull your body up with all your strength. Going up is the only direction for him to reach the summit. That summit of his will also achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goals-SDGs.
You would searchingly dive into these pages to explore how his actions are linked to the SDGs.
The site is not adoration of that man. Nor it is eulogy of his acts. Definitely not worship of that personality and ranking him in terms of followers in twitter. He is liable to err but still this human has self-correcting algorithm written by himself.
Make no mistake. This site is conceived by me, as an attempt in critical-thinking and inquiry-based analysis of the leadership roles played by likes of Narendra Modi and Emmanuel Macro both are named by TIME magazine as the leaders from democratic world which shaped the world in 2019 . NaMo was also one of the 10 most effective leaders as per ORB International’s International World Index’ in 2015.
As Coordinating Lead Author of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC that won Nobel Peace Prize, I am winner of Nobel Peace Prize citation prepared by IPCC. From 2015 I am promoting the message of IPCC which is linked to the peace prize by contributing to SDGs.
I strongly believe that SDGs must mainstream in all our policies, decisions and actions. Irrespective of our place of working. And we have just about a decade left for the same. Namo has unique ability to just do that
The word Nobel in ‘Nobelnamo.com’ is NOT misspelled, as many of you may think. It indeed IS Nobel. Criteria for Nobel Peace Prize includes the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses. SDG 16 is about peace making. I am sure Nobel Committee would include a criteria of the ‘best work in promotion of SDGs including peace’.
Feedback is welcome on this venture that sees the head of the state from SDGs prism.
