His language is an ingenious mix of the late Kanshi Ram and the Occupy movement—two sources that seem unlikely only at first glance. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, blending gravity of tone with animated emphasis like only he can, mouths his own refrain these days. “I’ll protect the Constitution with my life,” as he said in his india today interview on May 17.
