Samagra Ataljee Concept

Digital documentation of all the spoken and written words of Atal Bihari Vajpayee


Samagra Ataljee ( Atal Bihari Vajpayee in his entirety) is an initiative of the Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini (RMP), Mumbai.

RMP ( is primarily a training and research institute and a think-tank. RMP's sprawling campus known as Knowledge-Excellence Centre at Uttan, Bhayander near Mumbai was dedicated to the nation at the hands of Prime Minister Vajpayee in January 2003. Also, RMP was the first to compile and publish all the non-political speeches of Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the form of an anthology of speeches rightly named as 'Rajneetee ke us paar' or Beyond Politics. RMP is also known for it's Documentation Centre.

On this backdrop, when Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) decided to take up a mega documentation and digitisation project for the compilation of Atal Bihari Vajpayee's thoughts and literary contribution, RMP was naturally chosen as an agency to carry out this project.

Accordingly the BJP made an official announcement on December 24th, 2010 about this unique project. In his proclamation, Party President Nitin Gadkari said that BJP has decided to compile all the speeches, poems, interviews, photographs and other spoken words as well as written articles of senior Party leader and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in audio, video and text forms, and convert this material in digital form later. On June 8, 2011, former President of India A P J Abdul Kalam launched this project officially at a grand function in Delhi which was graced by former Deputy Prime Minister and a close associate of Aatal jee; L K Advani, BJP President Nitin Gadkari, Leaders of Opposition in the parliament of India Smt. Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley, former Union Minister Sharad Yadav and others. Later, on December 23, 2011, in the presence of Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar and several other leaders, Atal Diary 2012 and a set of video CDs containing speeches of Atal Bihari Vajpayee were ceremoniously released.

In order to complete this mega-documentation project successfully, an appeal was extended through Party units in different states to the members of the public to send all the material in their collection.

Project Outline

Former Prime Minister and one of the most legendary leaders of independent India, Atal Bihari Vajpayee is known as a man of many parts - a leader par excellence, thinker, poet, journalist and author and above all an orator who has always enjoyed a very special place of pride in the hearts of millions in India and abroad. Few in the world have had such a long career and a sustained popular base across the generations, language groups, regions and religions. The uniqueness of Atalji's leadership lies in his direct connectivity with the masses. Rarely does one come across leaders with a poet's heart and philosopher's intellect enjoying an ability to have a direct appeal among the masses.

Of all the great qualities of this great leader, unparalleled are his oratorical skills. There are people who have not missed even a single public address of Atalji no matter where the public meeting was.
