Democratic Congresswoman and the first Hindu-American contender for the country’s presidential elections, Tulsi Gabbard, has released a video welcoming Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his fresh visit to the country, in which he is scheduled to participate in a massive event called ‘Howdy, Modi!’ at Houston, Texas with thousands of members of the Indian-American community.

In the video, Gabbard apologises for not having the time in her schedule to attend Modi’s Houston event, as she has pre-existing campaign commitments. Nonetheless, she expresses hope that India and the US will come closer and increase cooperation in a number of fields, including climate change, economy, technology, security among others.

She also highlights the ancient Hindu idea of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, meaning “the world is one family”, while speaking about the need to respect each other’s cultures, ethnicties, religions and other differences.
