#1 A youth from the US, comes to an Indian temple to find his path on his advice of his guru. This is a wonder. I hope the vision you got will help you become the voice of millions of people and a voice of their aspirations, PM Modi tells Mark Zuckerberg.
#2 I dream of making India a $20 trillion economy. For that, I am pushing for agriculture, manufacturing and service sectors.
#3 Social media changed my thought process and connected me to the rest of the world. And as I started connecting, the world started accepting me as I was. Nothing could be more satisfying.
#4 A good government is one with many information channels, those that give real-time information.
#5 In China, the social network is a bit different. But I am active there too.
#6 It is my conviction that highways and I-ways have similar importance these days. My effort is to connect all 600,000 villages with optical fiber networks in the next five years.
#7 India offers demographic dividend, democracy and demand…3D. I have added a new D. De-regulation.
#8 It is easy to turn a scooter, but not a train with 40 bogeys. This is such a big country, changes are constant and widespread.
#9 If our country has to reach its economic goals, it cannot happen with half its population shut behind doors.
#10 We are bringing technology into governance in a very big way. This is making governance easy, effective, economic and transparent.
