“In this century, once again we have to give something to the world, say something. For this, it is important that we look at each other, know and understand (each other),” he said in a video message to the “Visit India Year 2015” event being held in Beijing.

“Currently, we are bound by the unbreakable bond,” he said, adding when the two countries come together, people will travel to and fro in large numbers.

Modi said he has personal connection with China as he hails from village in Gujarat’s Vadnagar which the famous Chinese traveller Hiuen Tsang had visited.

“These things are not just history but reflect a special bond,” he added.

Modi said he had been to China earlier and his experience had been very good. “I had read a lot of books about China but my experience was unique”.
