Video and Text: Raja Sen

The Sunita Williams juggernaut continues to stomp through a thrilled Ahmedabad, and the Gujarat University was packed to the nines to see her.

Thousands crammed into the open air ground to watch the astronaut speak. Also inside the sprawling campus, a movie-theatre-sized auditorium showing a live feed from the venue was crammed full.

In this clip, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi explains the need for Sunita to come often to the university, and why he would like her to keep the state on her priority list.
