Eleven -year-old Polish girl Alicja Wanatko has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking her return to India.
In her handwritten letter to Modi and newly appointed External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, the young Polish girl has also invoked her fond memories of caring of cows during her stay in Goa.
“ I love my school in Goa, the beautiful nature and I am missing my volunteering in the animal rescue centre there where I was helping to take care of cows. My mum could not re-enter India on 24th March, 2019 after a short trip out and we were told we were blacklisted due to our overstay,” Alicja has said in her letter, which was tweeted to Modi and Jaishankar by her mother Marta Kotlarska.
After her mother failed to attract the attention of former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, her 11-year-old Polish girl has now written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking their return to India.
In the letter, Marta’s daughter says that she’s missing her life in her “favourite country” and goes on pray to Shiva and Nanda Devi to help her in getting back to India.
“It feels like everything is just destroyed again. I pray to Shiva and Nanda Devi to help us and I have decided to write to you because you are the most powerful person that can help me and my mum come back to India, my home. Please help us and allow to remove us from this blacklist,” she says.
Her mother, Marta, an artist and photographer, who was on a multiple entry B-2 business visa to India, was turned away from the Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru, after she returned on March 24, from Sri Lanka, where she had gone to renew her Indian visa.
