Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s foreign trips often reveal different shades of his personality. His visit to Africa has been no different.
From displaying his skills as a drummer in Dar-es-Salaam with Tanzanian President John Pombe Joseph Magufuli to pensively retracing Mahatma Gandhi’s train journey in South Africa, Prime Minister Modi’s tour albums are one of their kind.

History in the re-making: Prime Minister Modi on the train from Pentrich Railway Station to Pietermaritzburg where a young Gandhi was thrown out of a compartment in 1893 for refusing to obey a racist order to move from a first-class compartment to a third-class one.
