In my last oped- I have observed and called Trump Visit to India a “Honeymoon diplomacy”
and now by witnessing the grandeur of spectacle that Donald Trump 'howdy friend' Prime Minister Modi going to unleash for him makes me wonder the possible undo of any diplomacy itself from this visit, coming 2 days of Trump Visit could just turn into just reality show, where one's a famous reality TV star Donald Trump showing his leisure time in his India's travel blog. President Trump expressed his fascination and excitement about his arrival in India, that probably depicts 'Donald Trump as a Mega Star' where his popularity going to attract 10 million people on the roads of Ahmedabad just for his welcome; how world biggest cricket stadium going to be open just for his mega show, simply Donald Trump India's tour before the presidential elections is just seems like a 'dream holiday' but where is diplomacy?
Yes, diplomacy, Donald Trump is coming is not coming on a private holiday but on a state visit, that always means given and taking of something bilaterally among 2 nations, the US wants India to reduce tariffs but India too demanding the “trade deal” and want back its 'Generalized System of Preferences (GPS) for which Donald Trump is least interested, he just preferring to feel like 'Mahajraja for 2 days who is going to get food serve in the platter of gold.
For Mr.Modi it's just one more event that is now becoming an inherent style of his politics and diplomacy, it's greater to chance for him to take his staggering hosting skills into a new level, let take this serious setting a dream holiday for the character like Donald Trump is simply not a joke. Mr. Modi, especially by his event management skills might have successfully raise himself personally into the list of most flamboyant global leaders but this less to benefit India's interest in a global family. Mr. Modi's friendship with Donald Trump failing to stop Mr.Trump getting offensive on trade with India, in his every speech regards to India Donald Trump express his animosity with India on the matter of trade. It's the same with China where Mr.Modi welcomed Xi Jinping on 2 occasions with a grand welcome in his rule but still, his diplomacy fails to reduce the trade deficit with China or torn apart in convincing China not to be supportive to Pakistan on matters like Kashmir, the list of India's flawed diplomacy under Modi is quite long indeed.
With a known fact Trump visit now will likely going to turn 2 days of mega reality show for everyone involved, from news channels that already ready with their special coverage package, the twitter world waiting to trend their hashtags, foreign analyst all set to rant their advice in the newspapers columns and news studios. Indian public loves tamasha that is surely guaranteed. Trump his family ready to board their Air Force 1 en-route to India. I just too want to say at last 'NAMASTE TRUMP.
