Even a kite can draw the world to Gujarat: Modi

Even a kite can draw the world to Gujarat, Chief Minister Narendra Modi exulted on Sunday while highlighting fresh steps taken by his government to promote tourism in the state.

"Patang Utsav (kite festival) is a routine effort. It has existed for a long time. But what was not there was the skill to show it to the world. We showed how a kite can draw the world to Gujarat," Modi said while inaugurating the international kite festival here.

The kite festival comes close on the heels of the Vibrant Gujarat summit that attracted business leaders from India and abroad to Gandhinagar.

Stating that this time his government is taking the festival to smaller towns, like Modhera, he said, "We are trying to brand Modhera and market it."
