Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey was on his first visit to India. While he was lucky to get his first meeting with PM Modi, most people feel he was rude and highly disrespectful of India and Prime Minister. The meeting had so many negatives:
* He was so so casually dressed – black hoodie or sweatshirt, casual or black leather pants, casual shoes.
* He was cross-legged, a huge sign of disrespect.
* He took with him a Mahima Kaul, an employee who has been a strong Modi – hater.
It was not clear if one was going to the vegetable market, or to see a picture to meet one of the most important people in the world. Would he have done the same in meetings (if he got one) with the US President or heads of many other countries?
Was this a mistake or done on purpose by one who is nearly half the age of the Prime Minister? What was hoped to be achieved or what was achieved? Was it to show that the head of one minor social media company superior to Prime Minister of India?

Just as what India has been telling the world for many years, the US President said, “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars (translates to nearly Rs. 215,000 crores) in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools.” MOST INDIANS WOULD SAY… SO TRUE!!!
Some nationalists in India, who are most of the time at the receiving end from mainstream media then said, “Dear RahulG, when will you see Pak “drama” instead of targeting Indian army. Are you rushing Aiyers to hug & console Pak over the snub?” Our Foreign Minister has totally ruled out any possibility any India-Pakistan cricket matches, pointing the 1,000+ border violations Pakistan each year, and the list of issues only keeps growing.
Will Pakistan change for the better? Your guess is as good as any?

Outgoing US president was successful on the India front only due to PM Modi. We should all remember that PM Modi, then as Chief Minister of Gujarat – his visa was denied by the US government, in part due to letter written by 65+ Indian MPs, christian evangelical organizations and some Bollywood and other citizens. People thought our PM would nver forget the damage done to him. However, Prime Minister was willing to overlook everything for the sake of the country and even so. He had his first meeting with President Obama in 3 months in the US, followed by several others, when he was invited to attended the Republic Day. India and US became natural allies, and several defense agreements were signed. All of this leading to the Indo-US relationship being the most successful of Obama foreign policy achievements.
