Today, on his big day Modi has sent out invites to the who's who in the world to be a part of history when he's sworn in as the new prime minister of India.
Modi gave a good start to the day with a visit to Rajghat where he offered tribute to Mahatma Gandhi. The prime minister-designate clad in his trademark kurta with an overcoat also met party veteran and former PM, Atal Bihari Vajpayee to seek his blessings.
The event will be a first in Indian history where several heads of states from across the globe have given their nod to attend the swearing-in ceremony of a leader who changed the face of Indian election campaigning. Among those in attendance would be Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif among others. The ceremony starts at 6 pm at Rashtrapati Bhawan in the nation's capital New Delhi.
Elaborate security arrangements have been made for the big Day. The circular on traffic restrictions is already out. Modi has managed to emerge victorious despite facing flak from his detractors. However, the real test of leadership for Modi starts now.
