Speaking jewels from #HowdyModi

Speaking jewels from #HowdyModi

While I was glued on to the TV to watch #HowdyModi, my focus was on what we can learn from his oratory skills.
These are a few aspects I picked up. Please add your learnings in the comments and we will have many perspectives on the platter.

  1. Content. He had a strong message and he articulated it extremely well. His speech was well structured.
  2. Language. Choosing to speak in Hindi, was a brilliant idea.
  3. From the Heart. He spoke from his heart. He must have surely had some staff to write the speech, but the beauty is he owned it completely.
  4. Audience Engagement. Bang on. The audience energy was high throughout. The way he continued to wave at the audience throughout while holding President Trump’s hand was certainly a heartwarming gesture.
  5. Clarity of Speech. Every single word was clear with correct pauses and wonderful, expressive gestures. As his style is, he is slow, maintains momentum and ensures no word is missed out. His effective use of poetry and muti Indian languages also added to the flavour.
  6. I/we. I thought it was a very effective communication of his hardly ever using the word I or ‘My Government.’ Every feat/achievement was treated as a national achievement
  7. Statistics. He demonstrated very will the use of hard facts and statistics and he was absolutely confident about everything he uttered, Statistical facts are gems in a speech.
  8. Creativity. I am referring to the two instances when he linked 9//11 to 26/11 and welfare to farewell.
  9. I am not too sure whether he had a teleprompter or not, but his speech was well prepared.

I will look forward to all speakers to add their observations, please.

    Home work was very well done.
    He worked hard on memorizng certain things specially the slogan (Everything is fine in India) in various languages. In fact the truth is!
    Made English language mistakes.
    It was very cool throuhout. The speaker should take the speech to higher pitches evry now and then.
    Humour missing.
    Conclusion came three times.

    Sushil Sir
    It is a very very good effort from your side.

      Dear Musatafa,
      Your points are valid and appropriate.
      Maybe I was biased and did not look for any negatives, but yes I did observe that the humour was missing.
      With all these comments one will be able to get an overview
      Thanks for your effort
      Sushil

    Great insights sir. One of the most commendable thing about PM’s session is awareness. His immense strength is striking the right chords for his audience.

    Also, a no mincing attitude. He made it very clear to Trump that Pakistan is a terrorist nation and his friendship to Imran khan May not yield desired result. Looking at the strength of Indians and Modi, Trump also would have got the message.

      Hi Rohan
      Well said. I did mention the strong and aggressive message he had.
      He infused pride in not only the 50000+ people in the stadium but also millions of Indians watching it across the Globe.
      Isnt it nice to have a leader who makes you feel proud of the country?

    Points very well noted Brigadier. Your sharpness and inquisitiveness to detailing is seen. Will definitely implement the above points next time in my speech.
    Great Orators are jewels nurtured with painstaking care, hard work and love.
