    It is a great day for India as two world leaders shared one platform to strengthen their contributions to world peace and economies. The US Presidents recognition of PM Modis leadership skill in achieving what India did not achieve earlier in its 60 years of independence is itself a world class recognition of PM Modis best tribute to 125 crore indians who see in him as the illustrious son of a worthy Mother India. PM Modis focus on cutting the red tape and delivering the benefits thru a systematic and time bound innovatve and creative ways is what India needed after 60 years of misrule by the congres party in the name of secularism. US will be very proud to be associated with a country whose leader is a man with a vision to lead this country to greater heights and place India as the worlds third largest democratic country delivering results thru administrative initiatives , reforms and development which the world will remember in the days ahead..Hats off to Modijee.
