It's been two days now that the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family have been in India on their first state visit.

He told reporters he visited the Taj Mahal when he was 11, 35 years ago, when he went to India with his father, Pierre Trudeau, the former Canadian premier.

The Canadian Prime Minister's visit will be focused on job creation and strengthening ties between the two countries.

However, the welcome of Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to India in his first trip to the nation, was marked with an absence of PM Modi, and even Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was absent.
