Narendra Modi

Modi the statesman speaks

INDIAN Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Indian Diaspora at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Sunday. There were twenty thousand Indians listening to him live at the venue while millions watched on television screens around the world. The 'Modi-fied' speech was a classic delivery by all standards. The aura with which Modi entered the venue was truly statesman-like. With the slow but steady walk towards the stage there was a small smirk on his face that...

Transit, Connectivity

Delhi may help Dhaka improve infrastructure

India would be willing to help Bangladesh improve its infrastructure, if required for transit and connectivity purposes, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said. He said this to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina when the two leaders met for the first time in New York on Saturday.

BETWEEN THE LINES

Border more complicated after Xi's visit

MY hunch is that Gujarat's map of India showing Arunachal Pradesh with dotted lines, suggesting a disputed territory, was at the instance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Gujarat is his backyard and he can have anything done there. Even the contradiction was half-hearted and left to further “investigation.” What Modi probably tried to convey to the visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping was that he was willing to keep Arunachal Pradesh as a disputed territory provided there was an indication by...

Modi exudes maturity, optimism and confidence

I always wondered how Narendra Modi, once a tea-boy at his father's shop at a railway station, could become the 15th prime minister of India. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA), led by him, won 336 seats out of 543 in the Lok Sabha in the last general election in spite of his past controversial credentials. The United Progressive Alliance (UPA), led by the Congress, won only 58 seats. What is Modi's magic? Narendra Modi recently appeared at an interview with...
