Some say most of the Houston area’s (one of USA’s largest city) Indian American community showed up – nearly 1 Lakh. Houston is USA’s energy capital. Other than the Pope, the Houston mega rally was the largest by ay International Leader in USA. US President and PM Modi jointly walked into the stadium. PM Modi had invited President Trump. The crowd was on their feet most of the time. For many it felt like more than home – our culture, our arts dances and our food. The event went flawlessly. Yes there were some protesters – we are never sure what they were protesting.
For all of us Desis, a Chaiwallah from a simple family like any one of us, we have elected many times as both a Chief Minister of the most prosperous state in India and the nation’s Prime Minister. The richest country in the world and its most powerful leader welcomed our PM and each of us (indirectly) on the red carpet. WE ALL SHOULD BE PROUD BUT ALSO DO OUR PART TO BUILD A GREAT FUTURE…
