A devotee shows his back, with an image of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, as he flexes his muscles during the 134th annual Rath Yatra, or chariot procession, in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad in this July 3, 2011 file photo. For many Indians, Narendra Modi is the man of the moment, a possible prime minister. Others see the chief minister of western Gujarat state as a Hindu zealot who did not stop the massacre of Muslims in religious riots a decade ago. Picture taken July 3, 2011. REUTERS/Amit Dave/Files
