As India prepares to hold the world's biggest election, Narendra Damodardas Modi's face beams down from government Web sites, billboards advertising welfare programmes, full-page newspaper ads and television shows that live-broadcast his speeches.

Apparently, that ain't enough for the Chowkidaar No 1.

His Bharatiya Janata Party, taking a leaf out of Donald J Trump's playbook, is raising funds by selling NaMo Again T-shirts, mugs and wristbands through the Modi smartphone app.

Mugs such as these are being sold at venues where Modi addresses rallies. So, go ahead and have a cuppa with your NaMo cup. Photograph: Adnan Abidi/Reuters
