Lets say Modi or Trump says "India US are equal partners in the Indo-pacific".

Does that mean India == US? No right?

Some folks are just too enamored by White colonizer's goat droppings. We need to get out of that mental cage.

Acar rally was organised in Houston on Friday (local time), ahead of the mega 'Howdy Modi!' event scheduled to be held on September 22 at the NRG stadium in the city.

More than 200 cars participated in the rally which was meant to signify the friendship between the world's largest (India) and the oldest democracy (US). Excited organisers and volunteers chanted the slogans of "NaMo Again" and said that they are ready to welcome Prime Minister Narendra Modi wholeheartedly.

The event organisers and volunteers participated in the rally in large numbers. The cars bearing US and Indian flags were seen moving on the streets during the rally.

Earlier, the organisers of the 'Howdy Modi!' said that the event will see the largest gathering for an elected foreign leader other than the Pope.

To be held at Texas' largest public gathering ground, the NRG Stadium, 'Howdy Modi!' will also witness a 90-minute-long cultural program consisting of music and dance featuring close to 400 artists.

Prime Minister Modi on Friday departed for a week-long visit to the US with an aim to boost bilateral visit and present India as a "vibrant land of opportunities."

The Prime Minister will have a stopover at Germany for a short time span before flying to New York where he will be following a packed schedule of events.

In his departure statement, the Prime Minister provided with the detailed the itinerary of his visit to the US where he will interact with CEOs of leading energy companies, besides attending a community event in Houston and addressing the 74th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

The Prime Minister will hold talks with US President Donald Trump and will review the bilateral relations in order to bring even more benefits to both countries and its people.

Modi will also be honoured with the Global Goalkeepers Goals Award 2019 from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

"In Houston, I look forward to my meeting with and address to the Indian-American community. Their success in diverse fields, their contribution to the US in various walks of life, their strong bonds with India and their role as a living bridge between our two democracies is a source of pride for us," he said in a reference to the "Howdy Modi event", where US President Trump will also be present.

Presidential elections are next year. Urban areas are strong Democratic strong holds. Urban areas are also where Indians reside and they are in sizeable numbers in a lot of cities. Indians also generally vote democrat. So Trump wants to use this opportunity to get in the good books of Indian people and get them to vote for him.
BTW I have an invite too but I had to cancel. They still sent me the ticket. Hopefully they will give my seat to someone else.

More than the Indian votes, he'll be hoping to get political funding from the Indians, which is much more substantial.

The importance of Houston — why this Texan city was picked to host Howdy, Modi! show

PM Narendra Modi is about to address his biggest-ever overseas rally ‘Howdy, Modi!’ Sunday in the US city of Houston, a Texan metropolis that serves as the hub of NASA’s human spaceflight programme. It is a big oil player, and, on a side note, the birthplace of one of modern music’s most prominent icons, Beyonce.

It is also home to around 1.3 lakh Indian-Americans who have always been a force to be reckoned with in the political and business landscape of the US.

Such is the clout of the community here that several Indian companies such as Mahindra & Mahindra, Reliance, Larsen and Toubro, and Welspun have made Houston the headquarters for some of their operations.

With the objective of tapping into this community and also to enhance business-to-business ties between Texas and Indian states, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to make Houston his first stop as he embarks on his week-long trip to the US.


A model community


Houston is the fourth busiest gateway for trade between the US and India. India is Houston’s 10th largest trading partner among nations, with $4.3 billion in trade a year, growing by 36 per cent annually since 2017.

Three of India’s leading public sector companies have corporate headquarters in Houston — ONGC Videsh Ltd, Oil India Ltd and GAIL Global USA — due to the large pool of educated and skilled Indian-American manpower on offer.

IT bellwethers like Infosys, Wipro, TechMahindra, Tata Consulting Services and Cognizant also have operations in the city.

In 2015, Indians became the second-largest ethnic Asian group in the US, next to the Chinese, according to a report by Pew Research.

Texas, being one of the few areas in the US that is growing rapidly and creating jobs, attracts a substantial proportion of the roughly 65,000–80,000 Indians who go to America on an H-1B visa annually.

Indians are seen as a model immigrant community. Almost all Indians in this area first came to the US on H-1B visas, which are reserved for highly skilled migrants.

Most Indian migrants have advanced or professional degrees and are employed in the hydrocarbons, healthcare, financial services, technology services and advanced manufacturing industries.

An appreciable, and growing, number of Indians hold senior to very senior positions in businesses.


The energy question


While energy is being touted as a new and emerging component in India-US ties, it traces its roots to former prime minister P.V. Narasimha Rao’s tenure when he visited Houston in 1994.

At the time, India was seen in considerably poorer light by the Americans for its Kashmir as well as inward-looking economic policies. However, Rao broke the ice with the US, then under president Bill Clinton, during his visit.

Rao was hosted in Houston by then Enron chairman Kenneth Lay, leading to an investment by the energy major in India. However, Enron’s JV with India’s Dabhol Power Co. ended on a bitter note after a huge scandal.

With his visit now, PM Modi is also looking to substantially increase India’s energy imports from the US, which currently stand at $4 billion. Houston is a crucial pivot to this plan.

The volume of oil that Texas produces could cover about 60-70 per cent of India’s oil consumption, according to official statistics by the Ministry of External Affairs. For India, which had to stall oil imports from Iran amid a threat of US sanctions, it is a significant prospect in terms of procuring oil and gas.

Texas has about 30 refineries that process around 50 lakh barrels per day, which constitutes about a third of all US refining capacity. The refineries are part of a massive petrochemical complex located in the US Gulf Coast in the states of Texas and Louisiana.

The ports of Houston, Beaumont and Corpus Christi are among the largest hydrocarbon terminals in the United States and much of its hydrocarbon and petrochemical exports and imports flow through them. All these factors have also made Houston a major oil trading centre.

In November last year, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner visited India with a high-level trade and business delegation.

“We expect that Houston will become a hub for energy exports to India. Virtually, all Houston-based oil majors are expanding their footprint in India,” Turner had stated at the time.

“Companies associated with the oil industry such as oilfield service and technology companies also have growing operations in India,” he added.



Howdy, Modi!


Former Indian Ambassador to the US Arun Singh said PM Modi’s visit to Houston “will signal that India is willing to build further on the now robust energy relationship” with the US.

“Houston is a place where there’s a significant Indian-American community. Besides, Texas is the energy capital of the US and energy is a new and growing component of US-India trade,” he added. “It also has the second-largest economy in the US.”

Former Indian ambassador Neelam Deo, who is now the director of Mumbai-based foreign policy thinktank Gateway House, echoed the view.

“Houston is one of the biggest cities in the US, with Texas having an Indian-American community of over 2,00,000. And they are present across all fields, from doctors to oil and gas,” she added.

“Houston could be for energy, as Silicon Valley is for IT. Having already visited other cities such as New York and San Jose (where Silicon Valley is located), it is quite understandable why PM chose Houston for this visit,” she added.

A massive 50,000 Indian-Americans have registered for Modi’s Howdy, Modi! rally, an attendance much larger than his 2014 address at Madison Square Garden in New York (19,000) and a 2015 event at Silicon Valley (18,000).

Trump to meet Pak PMImran on Monday, PM Modi on Tuesday in New York - PTI

HIGHLIGHTS

- US President Donald Trump will meet Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday, a day after he joins Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the mega "Howdy Modi" event in Houston

- The US President will again hold a meeting with the PM Modi in New York on Tuesday, a senior official has said


WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump will meet Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday, a day after he joins Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the mega "Howdy Modi" event in Houston and will again hold a meeting with the Indian leader in New York on Tuesday, a senior official has said.

Both the meetings with the leaders of India and Pakistan would be held in New York on the sidelines of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, a senior administration official told reporters on Friday in a preview of Trump's engagements in the Big Apple next week.

Trump is expected to arrive in New York on Sunday night after his participation with Modi at the "Howdy Modi" event in Houston where the two leaders will address over 50,000 Indian-Americans.

The US president will then travel to Ohio where he will be joined by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

"President Donald J Trump will be travelling to Houston for 'Howdy Modi: Shared Dreams Bright Futures’ wherein he will travel on to Ohio where he will be joined by Prime Minister Morrison of Australia where they will visit Pratt industry and celebrate US economic relationship with Australia," the official said.

On Monday (September 23), the first day of his stay in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session, Trump's first event will be the global call to protect religious freedom, the official said, describing it as a key event.

"After that the President is scheduled to meet with the following leaders. Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan, President (Andrzej Sebastian) Duda of Poland, Prime Minister (Jacinda) Arden of New Zealand, Prime Minister Lee (Hsien Loong) from Singapore, President al Sisi ofEgypt and President Moon of S Korea," said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

On Tuesday (September 24), Trump will deliver his address to the UN General Assembly. After that, he will hold a number of bilateral meetings.

"Prime Minister (Boris) Johnson of United Kingdom, Prime Minister Modi of India, the UN Secretary General, " the official said, adding that the president will also meet his Iraqi counterpart and end the day with a diplomatic reception.

With Modi-Trump meeting on Tuesday, the two leaders would be meeting for the fourth time in as many months. The meeting in New York is expected to set the tone of bilateral relationship between the two countries over the next few years.

The two leaders are likely to discuss a range of bilateral, regional and global issues, including efforts to address the growing bilateral trade disputes, potential defence and energy deals and peace process in Afghanistan.

Energy import from US is a great move. Reduces our dependence on Iran (never felt comfortable with their blackmailing over Islamist issues and put us in direct conflict with Israel who public smiles apart was always grimacing at us), gets us to address US carping about trade balance, most importantly wins us supporters in US industry.. all this without putting crown jewels i.e. military assets in US control.

What's not in it for India? :) Modi is demonstrating the power of the NRI community to domestic US politicians. Its taking the wind out of the sails of the Hindu hating leftists in US academia, assorted lobby groups, Islamists and Khalistanis. They are being made irrelevant. India no longer needs the brown EJ wannabes to intercede for its interests in the US if it has the diaspora united in its interests and a poweful bloc of US industry supporting it. These events are equal to several squadrons of F/A-18 E/F purchases in their own right!

There seems to be a trade deal in the pipeline. If it is true, with the recent tax cuts, US companies can be nudged to move sourcing to India.

This will help the Chinese more than any US naval group doing FOP etc..
