U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in India on Sunday (January 25) for a highly symboic visit and to nurture friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Modi greeted Obama and his wife, Michelle, on the tarmac of the airport in New Delhi as they came down the steps from Air Force One. The two leaders hugged each other warmly. Obama will be the first U.S. president to attend India's Republic Day parade, a show of military might long associated with the anti-Americanism of the Cold War, and will host a radio show with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His presence at Monday's (January 26) procession at Modi's personal invitation is the latest revival in a roller-coaster relationship between the two largest democracies that just a year ago was in tatters.
