"I arrived here just a few hours ago after travelling over 15,000 kilometers in more than 24 hours. And because of your love and enthusiasm, I did not feel at all that I am outside India," the PM said in Hindi. 
 
The prime minister said if the mind is at peace, there would be peace in family, society, country and the world as well.
