The boy who clicked a selfie with Narendra Modi and Donald Trump


New Delhi, Sep 23 (IANS): The boy who used his presence of mind and clicked a selfie with two of world's most powerful politicians - Donald Trump and Narendra Modi -- is a craze on the internet.

On Sunday, at the NRG Stadium, as the Indian Prime Minister was escorting Trump inside the venue of Howdy Modi in Houston, they were greeted by a group of children of Indian origin. While most of them greeted the two leaders with folded hands and a swarm smile, a young boy used the opportunity to click a selfie which both the leaders happily obliged.

Not only Trump shook hands with the boy of Indian origin but Prime Minister Modi himself shared a video of it on the official Twitter handle of Indian Prime Minister that has received more than 54,000 likes so far. Modi tweeted: "Memorable moments from #HowdyModi when PM @narendramodi and @POTUS interacted with a group of youngsters."

Not just it got the tweeple talking but even Union Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur called it an "epic selfie". He also called it "A Selfie for Lifetime!"

More than 50,000 Indian-Americans attended the "Howdy, Modi!" event in Houston on Sunday. The scale and grandeur of the event can be estimated by the fact many Congressmen, senators, Houston Mayor were in attendance apart from President Trump, of course. The event was organised at the NRG Stadium, one of the largest stadiums in US.

    It's one way atttacting young generation people towards bjp party. It's nothing but hidden agenda. It's already finalised in the beginning itself. Only to act latter. More of youngsters now onwards will fascinate towards modiji and as they reach eligible age for casting vote will favour bjp only. Now itself to develop mindset towards party.

    Indian media censoring massive protest against "....owdi Modi"
    People used the hashtag #AdiosModi to ask Modi to go back and serve up answers on what was happening in Kashmir which was still under lockdown. The crowd was a diverse gathering of Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims and Christians.
    Protesters carried posters saying ‘Real Hindus don’t lynch’and ‘Hinduism is real, hindutva is fake’

    What the Indian media did not say, the media in the US did. CNN said Trump and Modi were two sides of the same coin. Modi was even accused of stroking Trump’s ego.

    Bakaths don't understand politics at a deeper level...lol
    Everyone in US knows Trump is standing for re-election in 2020 and Indian American voter base is almost always Democrat Party supporters, because Indians just like other minority immigrants in US have their own agenda with respect to, US family immigration and public health Insurance. Republican Donald Trump wants to make an Impact with the Indian Americans and it was a mutual understanding between Trump to attend the show and for Modi to say "Abke bear Trump sarkar".

    Indian media is highly censored and controlled. For the first time India media is no more objective to say the least.

    All Media must report how good modi government is, how good the economy is, Nothing has happened in Kashmir, No human right violations and the list goes son.

    Extensive protests in US during the Modi event not reported except one liners,
    hardly reported is detail.
    One would feel sad what has happened to the factual reporting. Today there are no facts only facilitations and endorsements of government.

    If Media is not with ruling government to is monitored and blacklisted . Its a sad story of media in India.
    And we call it democracy .

    Sanjay, Hebri — Modi hardly works, the megalomaniac only gallivants around the globe for selfies! If you remove your blinders and have an open mind you would have seen and said what I said yourself, but unfortunately blind bhakts are also brain-dead!
