Modi visit to US: Trump appearance signals importance of India – BBC News

Five years ago, when Narendra Modi first stepped on US soil as India’s prime minister to chants of his name and “Hail Mother India”, many called it audacious.

The rock star reception at New York’s Madison Square Garden resembled a victory lap for a leader who had been denied entry into the US for almost a decade.

Castration —- not the panacea for Sexual Healing of the Nation – By Yvonne Sam

As the country prepares for election, the vote should hold the key to correction.
