PM Modi also made a mention of the Sarpanch or village head who started a "selfie with daughter" campaign in Haryana.
Addressing a massive crowd at London's Wembley Stadium, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a shout-out to a teacher named Imran Khan back in Rajasthan.
Mr Khan has come up with mobile apps for the benefit of students, said PM Modi, as he talked about an India "beyond headlines in newspapers" and "much more than what you see on TV."
"In Rajasthan's Alwar there is a man called Imran Khan. He has made 50 mobile apps. And Alwar's Imran Khan dedicated those apps to the students for free," said the Prime Minister.
"My India is in that Imran Khan from Alwar."
On his website, Imran Khan, 37, introduces himself as a web developer and Sanskrit teacher in a government school.
"I like to make cool and creative interfaces. My interfaces is always full of refreshing ideas. I like challenges, without challenge I can't work," he writes. Web development, he says, is a hobby.
PM Modi also made a mention of the Sarpanch
or village head who started a "selfie with daughter" campaign in Haryana, a state notorious for its skewed sex ratio of about 837 females to 1000 males.
Around 60,000 members of the Indian community gathered at Wembley to hear PM Modi, who was welcomed with a glittering cultural show featuring singers, dancers and schoolchildren.
