Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to unveil his architectural vision this weekend through a two-part Doordarshan documentary that will invoke the soldier as the inspiration for much of the non-infrastructure construction on his watch.

The documentary will showcase the “huge strides made by India in the last few years for the revival of India’s spirit of cultural unity and pride”, including the Ram Janmabhoomi project.

The first of the two-part, 30-minute-each documentary, Dharohar Bharat ki — Punruthaan ki Kahaani— will air on Doordarshan National on Friday evening at 8. Loosely translated, the documentary deals with “India’s Heritage: The Story of its Resurrection”.

A quote from the Prime Minister for the documentary — shared by the information and broadcasting ministry with the media on Thursday — states: “Our soldiers devote their entire lives and sacrificed their every being to safeguard every inch of our motherland. Their sacrifice cannot just be measured in words; its grandeur and import have to be brought alive to inspire future generations.”

The ministry said: “Ascertaining the security as well as the sanctity for patriotic sites such as the Jallianwallah Bagh; resuscitating the splendid fervour of our civilisational centres such as Ram Janmabhoomi, Kashi Vishwanath Dham, Somnath Dham and Kedarnath Dham, according respect to such spiritual sites such as Kartarpur Sahib, celebrating the lives of our freedom fighters at inspirational sites such as the Cellular Jail, centre-staging the contribution of Netaji Bose through the grand Netaji statue at India Gate canopy, and honouring the legendary contribution of our patriots — past and present — through the War Memorial are some of the themes presented in the documentary.”
