Let this immigrant kid from Uttar Pradesh finally be useful, live tweeting a translation of #HowdyModi speech by @narendramodi in Hindi. He apologizes to the Indian Americans who couldn't make it into the venue.
It's live here:
@narendramodi "Houston is strong," ha ha in English. "The name of this event is Howdy Modi. Howdy Modi. However, Modi alone is nothing."
@narendramodi "Everything is fine," again LOL in English. All is fine in the liberal democracy of India. Everything is moving forward....
@narendramodi After 60 years...it happened, we returned with majority in both houses after the election. Why did it happen? It wasn't because of Modi...It was because of you...
@narendramodi "The most important is that we are doing this by ourselves, not relying others."

English: We are challenging ourselves.
English: "We are aiming high. We are achieving higher."
Points to rural sanitation, cooking gas rates improving. 95% have cooking gas connection. 150 million people + have gas connections now.
Improved rural road connections. Millions more families have banking accounts. Improving "ease of doing business" and "ease of living." When exports increase, it will increase progress. Today, it is said "data is the new oil." Houston folks understand this.
Modi: I add data is the new gold.
Once, it took 2-3 months to make a passport, but now in a week a passport can come to the house. Now new companies can be registered in one week.
It was a headache to fill the tax return. Refunds took months. Now you will be surprised to hear how long it takes. It takes 10 days
I am challenging corruption....Last 2-3 years, 350,000 companies we have said farewell. We have said farewell to fake name companies.
#Kashmir: Expresses triumph for policy on Article 370. Says lives for women and children of Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh is improved.
Some people have trouble with what India is doing, but they are not able to take care of their own country. These people have made hatred against India their center of activity...Terrorism is coming from outside. Cheers. The whole world knows it.
America had 9/11. India had 6/11. From where it starts?
Friends, now is the time to understand against terrorism. And those who are promoting it. There should be war with them. In this fight, President Trump with all strength is standing with India. [Gets standing ovation.]
Above correction: Friends, now is the time to STAND against terrorism.

....Thank you, thank you, friends. Brothers and sisters, in India, a lot is happening. a lot is changing. and there is a lot more I would like to do in the future....I wrote a poem some time back...
We are making an investment friendly country. We ae going to spend $1.3 billion on development. 7.5% growth rate. This has never happened before. Low inflation. High growth. Lowering the corporate tax has given a positive message to corporations.
I will have a meeting with President Trump over the next 2-3 days, and I hope something positive will happen. He is an expert in the Art of the Deal. [Trump laughs next to Ted Cruz] And I am also learning a lot from him.
You are far from India, but the government of India is close to you.

Mr President, come with your family to India. I will welcome you. Our friendship with America is shared dreams and vibrant futures, and we will take it to new heights.
"Thank you Houston. Thank you America. May God bless you all." Puts his hands together in namaste, bows, walks off stage to shake hands first with Pres Trump. Suggests they walk. Takes Trump's hand. They are off to cheers, still holding hands. Modi doesn't let go. Classic India!
