I was happy to see narendramodiplans.com, when one of my friends shared it on twitter. Few days after that I noticed that the site was down, this was even after the I quit note. Instinctually, I checked the whois and saw the domain was up for deletion so I quickly setup the domain under my domain monitor. Within two days I received an email that it was available, without a second thought I purchased the domain.
Then the question was, what next. In the interim I listed the site on Sedo. I immediately got a few offers and one the offers almost USD 4500 but then I noticed the stats of the site, almost 1200 to 1500 people were visiting the website and getting disappointed, also I read the various articles linking back to the site.
It was clear that people wanted this site back, but still should I bite the bullet, would all the trolling be worth it, worst still what if someone landed at my doorstep. That’s when I got in touch with Vidyut to understand what should I do, she was direct that I should go ahead and put up the infact I should even put ads on it and make money of it, I didn’t want to ads, she offered her adsense code.
Now coming to the reason for doing what I did. I personally feel there is a blind mad following for Modi, and making any comment online that is not in modi’s favour can invite these very people.
I believe that politicians should appreciate satire has this is a great way for people to send them message and in this particular case a lot of us want to see Modi come out and talk about the riots, or even give us some real visions for the nation before we accept him as our leader.
