HowdyModi: Everything you want to know



Howdy Modi

#HowdyModi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a huge gathering named as HowdyModi at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on September 22, 2019. Modi had attended several Townhall events after he became Prime Minister in 2014.

The event will be attended by US President Donald Trump along with US lawmakers and Governors. The HowdyModi event has been organized by the Texas India Forum, which is a Houston-based nonprofit organization comprising of Indians living in Houston.

If you are unaware, Howdy stands for How do you do? and is commonly used to address people in the US. If you are working with WordPress, you might be familiar with the term Howdy since it appears on the top right-hand side of the dashboard.

The main aim of the HowdyModi event is to bring together people, businesses and others under one common platform. The event will also establish partnerships between India and the US economy.

The Texas India community comprises of over 500,000 people who are working in all sectors including students. It is to be noted that a large number of students have migrated to Houston from India for studies.

The HowdyModi can be attended for free but passes will be checked. The Texas India Forum had issued passes on the first come first serve basis via online. If you are part of the media, you can still register on the official site for the required passes. The event is expected to be attended by business leaders across the United States.

Like in the case of the previous events, the HowdyModi event will feature a colorful cultural program before the commencement of the speech by PM Narendra Modi. We don’t have any confirmation as to whether Donald Trump or Narendra Modi will start the speech. Trump had indicated that there will be several important announcements including the lifting of certain sanctions.

There are reports about possible rains in Texas for the next few days due to the formation of the cyclone. However, we can expect the #HowdyModi event to run smoothly without any glitches.

PM Narendra Modi to address the nation at 6 PM today




Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi will address the nation today at 6 PM in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Modi took to his official Twitter account and revealed that he will be addressing the nation today at 6 PM. In his tweet, Modi added that he will be sharing a message with his fellow citizens at 6 PM this evening in both Hindi and English.

Modi usually delivers his speech at 8 PM but we have to wait and watch what is in store. The overall COVID-19 cases are declining steeply in India. It looks like PM Modi will delve into these aspects and will urge citizens to protect themselves from the deadly pandemic.

In his previous speeches, Modi stressed the importance of preventing COVID-19 with the help of masks, social distancing, and usage of soap and sanitizers. He also outlined the importance of being Aatmanirbhar Bharat, which envisages companies to manufacture their products in India.

Kerala Gold Smuggling Accused Swapna Suresh Photos with Bigwigs




Swapna Suresh, the name not familiar to Kerala people till July 6, is reportedly faced allegations over Gold Smuggling with her associate Sarin. Both were employees at the UAE consulate in Thiruvanathapuram. The Gold Smuggling came into light when suspicious baggage marked as diplomatic was seized by the customs at Thiruvananthapuram airport.

According to reports, customs officials got suspicious when Sarin produced an unauthorized letter. Moreover, Swapna Suresh also telephoned top Customs officials and asked them to hand over the baggage to avoid dire consequences.

The series of events has forced customs to dial their higher officials in New Delhi, who gave green signal to open the baggage. Upon opening, customs seized over 100 kg of Gold imported from the UAE. The consulate attache in Thiruvanathapuram has denied any role in the smuggling and was not aware of Gold inside the baggage. It is learned that Sarin went to collect the baggage with a fake ID.

US suspends all Chinese Airlines flights amidst COVID-19 pandemic




Chinese Airlines

The United States hs ordered the immediate suspension of all the flights by Chinese Airlines to and fro from the country with effect from June 16. The development comes in the wake after Beijing failed to allow American carriers to resume services to China.

According to the US Transportation Department (DoT), the US carriers have been asked to resume passenger services starting June 1. However, the Chinese Government has failed to approve their requests, which is a clear violation of the Air Transport Agreement.

Even though the Chinese Airlines suspension order takes effect from June 16, the order will come into force immediately if President Trump signs it. It is unlikely that Trump will sign the petition soon because people would have booked flight tickets. Their journey will be in jeopardy if the US decided to cancel flights all at once.

The US carriers have either reduced or suspended services to China due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, United and Delta Airlines had submitted the required applications at the start of My to resume operations. The airlines failed to get clearance and authorization from Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC).

With the suspension of the Chinese Airlines flights by the US to China, the tensions between the two countries after the eruption of the COVID-19 will increase double-fold. It’s better for the US to suspend flights from China because it will reduce the risk of COVID-19 community spread. We hope the casualty rates will decrease in the US by the middle of June. The US and Chinese airspace were busy before the COVID-19 pandemic with carriers operating over 325 flights per week.
