Modi visit to the U.S.

When all the punditry over the visit to the United States of America of the prime minister, Narendra Modi, is exhausted, it will be instructive to step back and study how the Americans selectively use all their levers of power on a graduated scale when they want a foreign leader’s visit to succeed and produce results.

 
Indians are in an exploration phase. Mangalyaan goes to Mars and the prime minister to Washington DC. India has reasons to be ecstatic about the Mars mission, as well as the American visit of its new leader, who will be armed with the glory that a victory with a huge majority in a democracy of one plus billion people befits. For the United States, too, this is an important moment. India is an exemplar in its standing as a functioning democracy of one billion people, especially considering its diversity.  
 

The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi and the President of the United States of America Barack Obama met this morning. Marking their first bilateral summit, the President recognized the Prime Minister’s historic election victory in the largest democratic election ever held.

 
As nations committed to democracy, liberty, diversity and enterprise, India and the United States are bound by common values and mutual interests. We have each shaped the positive trajectory of human history, and through our joint efforts, our natural and unique partnership can help shape international security and peace for years to come.  
 

As President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met for the first time over dinner, the White House issued a vision statement for the US-India Strategic Partnership: "Chalein Saath Saath: Forward Together We Go".

 

Personal relation between leaders has a long tradition in international diplomacy. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi readies to take part in his first summit with US President Barack Obama, pundits and the media have focused a good deal of attention on their encounter, billed to detangle the relationship and reenergize the strategic partnership.

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi rides a cresting wave of hope coming to the United States. There are four elements to the expectations: Developing strategic ties with the Obama administration, getting to know US politicians, building economic and business ties to further his vision for India, and connecting with the Indian diaspora writes Arul Louis

 

The first visit of Narendra Modi to the US as India’s prime Minister heading the first majority government in the country after 23 years is high on symbolism, much in keeping with his style and well-crafted image writes Rashmi Saksena

 

The success of Modi’s visit will have to be seen in the fashion in which the prime minister is able to kick start a critical strategic partnership that had been wasted by debating extraneous issues for political gains writes Dr. Sridhar Krishnaswami
