A word cloud analysis of Mr Modi's speech shows that he was keen to stamp his ideas on governance and the country's future.

He mentioned "village" a few times and emphasised the development of rural India.

The PM also stressed the importance of toilets in every home and also talked about the "shameful cases of rapes" in India.

The word cloud reflects that Mr Modi covered important areas like security, women's safety, growth, economy, foreign relations and communal harmony.
