"I had spoken during Mann Ki Baat, that in a country where Lakshmi is worshipped, in that country we have Lakshmi in our homes, in our villages, in our locality, there is a Lakshmi. Our daughters are an avatar of Lakshmi. We, in our villages, in our localities, in our wards, in our cities, during this Diwali, the daughters who have achieved something in their lives, the daughters who are an inspiration to others, we should organise an event, to commemorate those daughters. That should be our Lakshmi Pujan," Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.
