Even after a massive change in US politicking, Modi-Obama courtship is alive. Soon, there is going to be a procedural meet up amidst the two world leaders. Meetings with former US president, Barack Obama tops the chart of PM Modi’s history of extensive world tours. This meeting is the part of Obama’s tri-nation visit. The excursion will start from China and will continue through France and India.
On November 30th, 2017, a meet-up will be held amidst the duo of the most influential leaders, PM Modi and Barack Obama. As performer US president’s opinions, they share common work goals and thriving partnership. Together, they visualize towards creating a terrorism-free space and better climatic conditions.
In the course of 3 years, PM Modi and Barack Obama meetings have been more like iteration. Surely, they may have discussed environment and terror issues, but with time, the bond has grown into something phenomenal. Obama left the White House in January 2017. Since then, this is the first convention amidst two of them.
A spokesperson from Obama’s office says, “the former president has forged a close and cooperative partnership with President Xi on issues ranging from growing the global economy to combating climate change, and he looks forward to catching up with his former counterpart.”
During his targeted journey, Obama will speak on the sensitive matters of education and small and semi-large sized businesses. In India, the leader will be speaking at Hindustan Times Summit followed by PM Modi’s speech.
Recent US elections have been a great source of ambiguity in the air. Most importantly, Trump’s new impositions made Obama frown and criticize some of them extensively. Especially, Paris climate accord, which was approved by all the nations. By the year 2020, Trump’s government has been planning to withdraw from the rapport.
The previous visit of Barack Obama was held in January 2015. Many times, the auspicious presence of Obama has been seen in important occurrences of India. Republic Day celebration was one of them. During his tenure, Obama had made two planned visits to India.
In New Delhi, the Obama Foundation is going to launch a town hall summit. The Washington Post frames it like, “intending to expand the conversations about what it means to be an active citizen and make an impact”.
On December 1st and 2nd, Obama will put his views further in the sessions of Les Napoleons Summit.
The town hall summit of Obama is expecting the presence of young Indian leaders who look forward to making a change.
This year, when Barack Obama made the sign off from his designation, he bid heartily farewell to world leaders around. The list inevitably included PM Narendra Modi.
The chemistry between Obama and Modi is world renowned. In fact, CNN describes it as, “striking odd-couple chemistry between the barrel-chested, bear-hugging Modi and his cool, often restrained American counterpart”.
No wonder, Barama also had made his contribution in the “Man Ki Baat” special edition.
Their very first meet up was held in September 2014. PM Modi was cordially invited by Barack Obama to Washington. In fact, the greeting sentence was chucklesome. Obama greeted while saying “Kem choo?”. To this, PM Modi reciprocated saying, “Thank you very much, Mr. President.”
The later meeting of them derived the term, “chai pe charcha” when Modi offered tea talk to Obama.
Their cupid story does not end with just former greetings. We have also seen Obama complementing Modi for his white attire saying, “You are looking good in white”. Like always, Modi Ji acknowledged with his courteous voice saying, “Thank you, Mr. President”.
Despite long and fulfilling excursions, an Obama’s Taj Mahal visit is still undone. After the sign-off, when PM Modi invited the former US president to India, Obama spoke about the unattended Taj Mahal visit. Sure, Mr. Obama! Maybe this Thursday!
