Netanyahu's visit to India is his first and marks 25 years since India and Israel established diplomatic relations.

Netanyahu's India visit begins on Sunday. As Moshe visits Mumbai the first time after the attacks, read 10 things to know about him.

Moshe's parents Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg were serving as directors at the centre, run by the Chabad-Lubavitch group, when they were killed along with six others. There has been no drastic change on Moshe's personality or his characteristics after the attack, and he seems to be a normal child who survived one of the most harrowing experienced in his infanthood. Baby Mose was only 9-years-old when his parents were shot dead by terrorists from Pakistan. The attacks killed over 166 people and were carried for three days. Nariman House was reopened in 2014, after extensive renovations following the attack in 2008, which left it badly damaged.

On the fateful night, Moshe had been put to sleep by his nanny in his room on the fifth floor. Then "Baby Moshe" became a face of the innocent victims of ruthless terrorism. "Part of it is a special area where parents of Moshe will be remembered", he said. She swiftly took him in her arms and miraculously snuck out. The boy is now 11 years old. He now lives in Israel with his grandparents. She also lives in Israel now. At that time Moshe's mother was 6 months pregnant.

Sandra Samuels, Moshe's nanny, traveled to Israel with him after his parents were killed and was given Israeli citizenship in 2010.

Samuel was honoured by Israel with the title of "Righteous Gentile", the highest award given to non-jews. "Prime Minister Netanyahu will be coming here on January 18 to unveil the memorial project which will be dedicated to remember and commemorate all the victims of 26/11 attack".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had met Moshe and his grandparents during a visit to Israel in July past year and had told him that he could visit India anytime.
