Dhaka: For President Pranab Mukherjee, a visit to Bangladesh is a home-coming of sort and he feels "really touched" on being considered the "son-in-law" of this country as his in-laws hail from here.

"Whenever I go to Bangladesh, I feel as if I have come to my native place, my relatives. The love and hospitality which the people of Bangladesh have extended to me always cannot be forgotten.

"I don't know why they love me so much, it must be their inherent quality," Mukherjee said.

He said, "I had made up my mind that I will begin my foreign trip with Bangladesh only."
