Mr. Modi also said the people living abroad need to connect culturally with the homeland, and announced that India is planning a pilgrimage scheme for people living abroad. He was addressing in annual Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Varanasi. He also highlights India’s potential to lead the world in sustainable development. The International Solar Alliance or ISA is one such platform. Through this medium, we (India) want to take the world towards one world, one sun and one grid.
Mr. Modi said that Indians living abroad should work to inspire foreigners to visit the country. “I have said before and I reiterate now. Wherever you live and if you have five non-Indian families near you then motivate them to visit India. Your attempts will help in boosting the tourism sector of India.”
