These incidents occurred during Prime Minister Modi’s highly anticipated visit to the United States, where he received a grand ceremonial welcome at the White House in Washington, D.C. This visit marks his first official US State visit and aims to further strengthen the strategic relations between India and the United States.

Upon his arrival at the White House, Prime Minister Modi was warmly greeted by US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden. The ceremonial welcome began earlier at the Andrews Air Base, where PM Modi received a grand reception, including a guard of honor. The White House was adorned with peacocks and lotus blooms, symbolizing the close ties between the two nations.

During the welcoming ceremony, the national anthems of both countries were played, and dignitaries from both sides exchanged handshakes. The South Lawn witnessed an enthusiastic gathering of Indian-Americans, who chanted slogans such as “USA USA,” “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” (Victory to Mother India), and “Modi Modi” in support of both leaders.

In his welcoming speech, President Biden emphasized the importance of the bilateral relationship between the United States and India, describing it as a defining partnership. He commended the contributions of the Indian diaspora and acknowledged the significant number of Indian-Americans serving in his administration, including Vice President Kamala Harris.
