Indo-US ties get a leg-up

Indo-US ties get a leg-up
Prime minister Narendra Modi has the knack of converting almost every situation to his advantage, which is one of the essential attributes of being a good leader. Importantly, he believes in his own ability to excel. Ever since he has assumed power at the Centre, he has been creating waves in quick successions, like how he did in Gujarat. Without doubt, Modi has succeeded in winning the hearts of the Americans during his visit to the US. And in the recent visit of US president Barrack Obama to India, Obama was all praise for the Indian values, its people and unity in diversity—something that was never witnessed before, at least in the recent past. Modi’s mesmerising address at the joint press conference at Hyderabad House was an absolute treat to watch that left every one breathtaken. Both US and India have every reason to feel proud of their leaders for creating a climate of hope and confidence, generating a lot of enthusiasm and giving a whole new direction to the Indo-US bilateral ties. Trust and confidence are two factors that can take these two nations to greater heights. Trade between the two countries and other vital areas of cooperation, like the civilian nuclear deal, defence, etc, is expected to witness a new high. Obama’s India sojourn obviously ended on a good note.

Samsung should not worry
Apropos of your edit ‘Samsung’s Apple woes’ (January 30), the Korean electronics giant has not much of a reason to worry with Apple’s rise. For one, Apple’s strong figures are on the back of a sales surge largely due to the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Once the craze of ‘i-owners’ (who must acquire the latest i-whatever in a sheep-like manner) subsides, the smartphone shipments from Apple will tumble and Samsung will not have to share the numero uno spot. Also, once Android One catches on at the entry level into the smartphone market, it will also be on offer on phones from bigger makers like Samsung.
