Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Sydney and was greeted by Australian High Commissioner to India Barry O’Farrell and other officials. He addressed the Indian diaspora in Sydney and was accompanied by Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese. But what caught everyone’s attention was the way he was welcomed at the Sydney stadium. He was given a very warm welcome with traditional Vedic chanting, and the atmosphere was blissful.

The Qudos Bank Arena was filled with blissful vibes as PM Modi received a warm and rousing welcome from the Indian diaspora. He was welcomed with India’s traditional Vedic chant and rituals as thousands of people belonging to the Indian diaspora filled the stadium.
Australian PM Anthony Albanese accompanied PM Modi in the stadium and mentioned that the crowd of 20,000 was one of the largest at the venue. He also mentioned that the last time he saw someone on that stage was Bruce Springsteen, but even he did not receive the welcome that Modi did.
