Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was in Lakshadweep recently to inaugurate the Kochi-Lakshadweep Islands Submarine Optical Fiber Connection, tried a hand at snorkelling and shared photos of the same on his social media. The PM called it an 'exhilarating experience' and said anyone who wants to embrace the adventurer in them should have the union territory on their list. Snorkelling lets swimmers explore underwater life with their faces covered with masks.
Modi also shared pictures of his early morning walks on the pristine beaches of Lakshadweep and some moments of leisure, sitting on a chair by the beach. "In addition to the scenic beauty, Lakshadweep's tranquility is also mesmerising. It allowed me to reflect on how to work even harder for the welfare of 140 crore Indians," he said. He also dedicated several projects to the nation. "Recently, I had the opportunity to be among the people of Lakshadweep. I am still in awe of the stunning beauty of its islands and the incredible warmth of its people. I had the opportunity to interact with people in Agatti, Bangaram and Kavaratti. I thank the people of the islands for their hospitality. Here are some glimpses, including aerial glimpses from Lakshadweep," Modi said on X.
"Lakshadweep is not just a group of islands; it's a timeless legacy of traditions and a testament to the spirit of its people. My visit has been an enriching journey of learning and growing," he added.
