Narendra Modi went to US and met Donald Trump last week.
“The Indian side is trying to keep the event low key so as to not ruffle feather in the White House,”…
“The Modi jamboree is also hosting a relatively low-key community event …. accommodate just 1500 people, a far cry from the more than 15,000 Indian-Americans who crowded into Madison Square Gardens in New York and the San Jose Center in Silicon Valley, two big events that set the template for Indian diaspora gatherings across the world.
Although the Greater Washington DC area, home to 150,000 people of Indian-origin, could easily host the event at a bigger venue such as the Washington Convention Center or bigger ballrooms in several DC hotels (including Trump International!), there appears to have been a conscious effort not to diss the President who is fond of boasting about the size of his rallies.”
“In fact, the bear hug shocked the U.S. President, ironically in the same way are people whose hands Trump initially shakes in conventional fashion but are then pulled into Trump’s clutches up close and personal. Modi gave Trump a taste of his own medicine.”
Mussolini of Italy (as Napaloni, dictator of Bacteria) and Hitler of Germany (as Hynkel, dictator of Tomainia meet in these scenes.
Watch out for the ego politics through which these dictators take decisions about war, peace and death which will affect the lives of millions of people.
- Minister decorated, abused by emperor.
- Oneupmanship in posing to the media, waving to the people, and even in being seated.
- ‘Cordial’ discussions where each tries to pull a fast one on the other.
It seems Mussolini character resembles more closely to Trump and Hitler character (played by Charlie Chaplin himself) to Modi.
