India is the second-most populated country in the world and if that isn't enough it is also the second most polluted country as well.

Donald Trump created quite some headlines with his inaugural speech but one phrase that irked few eyebrows was ‘America First’. Ever since Trump has kept the US above all, there has been a bidding war over the second spot started by Netherlands when they dropped a video titled, ‘America first, Netherlands second’. This set a trend for other countries and now India has put a strong case for being worthy of the spot.

The video reveals that no one can do second like India in the world. India is the second-most populated country in the world and if that isn’t enough it is also the second most polluted country as well. When India participates in the Olympics, they come second by winning a silver medal at the badminton final. Also, there are about 2.5 million Indians in America.

India’s contribution to world and America has been more than any other country. If you go to the United States, you are sure to run into an Indian and sometimes at strange places. The New York cabbie could be Indian and so could be the 7-Eleven guy. The IBM professional could be and Indian and of course, the CEOs of Microsoft and Google are Indian.

Watch the video here:

So, while many countries have their eye on that second spot, no one can do a second better than India. Also, we have so many things common with the US like a slightly annoying neighbour that keeps coming up with notorious things to break peace in the country leaving India with no other option but to retaliate. Even Trump himself mentioned in one of the speeches that he is a big fan of Hindu and of India. He also said that if he wins elections, India will have a friend in the White House.

So, it’s time that Trump completes his ‘vadaa’ (promise) and be a good friend because India and America can be the ‘Jai and Veeru’ (Sholay) of the modern times.
