We Indians sincerely believe in a tradition i.e., Atithi Devo Bhava: (Guests are like God), and we can go to any extent to prove that.
I mean really, just tell us that someone is coming all the way from the USA (White House) and we’ll go to all lengths to prove that we’re not the country of snake charmers, cows in the streets, infectious stray dogs, beggars, and open-defecation (ye to humko pata hi nahi kya hota hai).
In May, when Justin Bieber came to India for his lip-sync concert, he handed over the list of ‘non-negotiables’ that included ten luxury sedans, and 2 Volvo. He was here only for one night, and I’m still trying to figure out what did he do to those vehicles.
Apparently, the preparations are even BIGGER (in Hyderabad) when Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the oldest American President (Donald Trump) is here with an agenda to talk about “Women First and Prosperity for all,” the idea of which has been greeted by most of the people in the nation as, HEIN?
On a particular invitation from our Prime Minister, Ivanka Trump has arrived in India on Tuesday, November 28.
And while the country has rolled out its red carpet for Ivanka, let’s have a look at what’s hidden beneath it that’s making me feel bad from within.
How Ivanka will move in the city VS How Indians move
Prime Minister of India as a host went to Hyderabad airport to receive Ivanka Trump. Apart from her American commandos, the Indian government has provided Z+ (highest level) security to her. While the First Daughter of America is still in the nation, we’re all allowed to forget the real India.
When Ivanka peeps out of the window, VS When Indians dare to peep
While Ivanka is on her way to the hotel and feels like peeping out of the car’s window, she is going to see all positive and woman-friendly quotes that would brighten up her day. On the contrary, the regular ads we see on the streets are not going to make any difference.
How Ivanka will dine VS How underprivileged kids eat
While she’ll be enjoying a great feast at the world’s largest dining hall at Taj Falaknuma, poor kids in India (future of this nation) will survive the entire day on mid-day meal that’s not so royal.
Roads for Ivanka VS Roads for Indians
While roads of the route where Ivanka will be commuted are re-created, re-repaired and forced to look butter smooth in no time, we will suggest you visit another part of the city which is critically damaged roads that could take life.
Hotel where Ivanka will stay VS Place where slums reside
To make her stay more comfortable in India, the city police commissioner issued an unprecedented order of ban on begging in Hyderabad. Not only this, more than 6,000 poor people are shifted to homeless shelters which are set up on the grounds of the prison,
Ivanka’s agenda VS Some punk’s agenda
As we read earlier, Ivanka’s India visit agenda is to talk about ‘Women First and Prosperity for all‘ at Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017. While some punks might have their plans for the night.
Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are in an official meeting.
It is Ivanka Trump’s first and big solo political outing ever since her father Donald Trump has become the President of the USA. Now when our government has done this much to impress her, we hope to see some good results soon.
