After earning much applaud by engaging in a flurry of diplomatic activity recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Australia visit is now a mater of great excitement. Modi whose morale is touching sky after thumping victory in two States Maharashtra, Haryana at home, will visit Brisbane next month to attend the G20 leader's Summit.

The British PM David Cameron and Chinese president Xi Jinping will also attend the Summit.

Not only election results, but couple of recent initiatives I.e Make in India, Swachh bharat abhiyan and Saansad gram Adarsh Yojna also earned Modi much applaud. This is big proof that people of the India are with him on any matter which is in the interest of the country, though Modi always has stand up on that expectation.

Madison Sqaure Garden like event in Australia?

After Modi bowled over Indian Diasporas in US by addressing a large gathering at Madison Sqaure Garden recently, similar event is being planned in Australia now. A Deccan chronicle report says that the gala event may take place in Sydney's Olympic Park on November 17.

A bigger than Madison Sqaure Garden like event is being organized by the Indian Australian Community Foundation and will be attended by 1500 people.


Modi's Australia visit will be most likely of four days starting from November 15. Talking about the whole itinerary, report says that he will attend G-20 summit on Nov15-16 in Brisbane , then address Indian Diasporas on November 17 and at last on November 18 he will have bilateral talk with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott in Canberra.

No Indian PM visited in 28 years

The reason why Modi's visit is special this time because after Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's visit in 1986, no Indian Prime Minister had visited the country. Modi most likely will speak in Hindi on the line of his UN speech. Labor Senator from Tasmania Lisa Singh said Modi's speech in Hindi would mean he was bringing in respect, culture and strengths of India to Australia.

While talking about the event, one of the organisers said as quoted by DC, "The huge enthusiasm of Indians living in Australia for Prime Minister Modi and the much talked about Modi wave in elections has encouraged us to organise such an event in a short period of time".

Modi proved his diplomacy knack earlier

The way Modi has proved his mettle at diplomacy first meeting leaders of neighboring countries then traveling to Japan, hosting Chinese president Xi Jinping at home, it can be expected that Indian Prime Minister will again score high.

He must have the fact in mind that India needs growth and development at this time and which can be achieved only when big superpowers like US and Australia will support the country wholeheartedly.

Though, roadblocks are bound to happen but the great leaders are those who resolves the issue meticulously. And Modi surely falls in that category.
