India’s Modi begins rock star-like U.S. tour

Thousands of supporters are expected to throng midtown Manhattan on Sunday to greet India’s new prime minister, Narendra Modi, a reception more befitting a rock star or a pope than a visiting foreign dignitary.

I know the Indian Embassy in NYC is big, but I hadn't realised it has quite that many staffers it could send. :wink:

To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

but still the kids with SG passport can't avoid NS :twisted:

BTW, have you done any reading on OCI/PIO ?

other than the convenience, you are also aware of the fact that it gives another revenue stream for unscrupulous law enforcers to collect money under the scheme, threatening OCI/PIO card holders are illegally having invested etc ?

Modi should enforce law and order, and weed out corruption as a priority, without which a fair number of former Indian passport holders or descendants aren't pretty comfortable ...

I haven't heard of any such issues faced specifically by OCI/PIO. They deal with the same level of corruption and extortion that ordinary Indian citizens have to :twisted:
