Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in his elements at the launch of Start-up India' and 'Stand-up India' movement on Saturday, regaling a smart audience of young entrepreneurs, start-up founders, techies, ministers and officials at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi.

In his about 50-minute address in chaste Hindi, but with simultaneous translation in English, to the about 1,500 people, Modi treated them to a range one-liners, drawing applause from a well-informed gathering before unveiling the government's action plan for start-ups in the country.

Some of the one or two-liners:

* We are here so that you can tell us what we should not do.

* We want to focus on hand holding for start-ups.

* Start-ups don't have to be billion-dollar ventures. Even if it employs five persons, it is contributing to the Indian economy.

* This start-up movement is not linked to money or name and fame. It is about finding solutions to problems of common people.

* Solutions to all problems are in an app. I also have an app - the Narendra Modi app.

* Start-ups are not just because of entrepreneurial capabilities, but also for the aspect of risk-taking.

* Ideas are many, but some leave the idea halfway while others become very involved with the idea.

* Young people across the country have been watching this programme from the morning.

* Today is a Saturday and considered a holiday for the government. And it's beyond 6 p.m. It's unthinkable. But this is the change.

We are the largest democracy in the world with skin deep roots. Technology development support is given to proven established products, processes, devices, gadgets etc., No support for yet to be proved, established. Who will support Americans ? 67 years have passed, still we have not started supporting yet to be proved things. Can we club support to start ups with yet to be proved category ?
