“I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for, and to see realized. But my Lord, if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” Nelson Mandela, defence statement during the Rivonia Trial, 1964. Also repeated during the closing of his speech delivered in Cape Town on the day he was released from prison 27 years later, on 11 February 1990.

The World Cloud is based on Narendra Modi‘s speech delivered on October 27, 2013 at the national capital. It looked as if BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate for 2014 elections was in his best of oratorical skills blaming UPA government for all the troubles of nation and its people. In midst of talk, he managed to spark a thunderous response of applauds as well as huge uproar of slogans by the audience by ridiculing the government with amusing phrases and stories.
Well, it would be only in 2014 one would conclude whether his speeches were catalyst for his win or were just another pillow of promises.
