Burmese opposition leader and member of parliament Aung San Suu Kyi is making her first visit to India after almost 40 years.

She will meet Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, tour parliament and deliver a public lecture.

Suu Kyi will also visit the college in Delhi she attended in the 1960s, when her mother was Burmese ambassador.

The visit comes two years after elections in Burma that formally ended military rule.

A new, nominally civilian government led by President Thein Sein was sworn in in 2011 and has since implemented a series of economic and political reforms.
