US President Joe Biden Gifts Special T-Shirt To PM Narendra  Modi Highlighting AI Quote

With the technology cooperation between India and the US gaining new heights, President Joe Biden on Friday gifted Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a special T-shirt which had PM Modi's famous quote "The future is AI-America and India". Addressing the joint session of the US Congress for a historic second time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, 22nd June 2023,  said that it is an exceptional privilege to do it twice, adding that, "A lot has changed since I came here seven summers ago. But a lot has remained the same - like our commitment to deepen the friendship between India and the United States. In the past few years, there have been many advances in AI - Artificial Intelligence. At the same time, there have been even more momentous developments in another AI- America and India." 

PM Narendra Modi coined a new acronym to showcase the technological cooperation between US and India saying that there has been even more momentous development in another AI- America and India. PM Modi addressed the joint sitting of the US Congress on June 22, saying "The US is the oldest and India the largest democracy," adding, "Our partnership augurs well for the future of democracy."

PM Narendra Modi said he can relate to the battles of patience, persuasion and policy. "I can understand the debate of ideas and ideology. But I am delighted to see you come together to celebrate the bonds between two great democracies - India and the United States," the prime minister said. Prime Minister Modi, on his first-ever state visit to the United States, received a ceremonial welcome upon his arrival at the White House.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi was given this T-shirt by President Biden, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra, Apple CEO Tim Cook and External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar were present at the event, amongst many others. During his historic second address at the US Congress yesterday, PM Modi also said, "Now, when our era is at crossroads, I am here to speak about our calling for this century."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's  first visit to the US took place in 2014, during which he had a working visit and delivered his inaugural speech at the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly. In 2016, he returned to attend the Nuclear Security Summit and held a meeting with then-President Barack Obama at the White House. That same year, PM Modi made another trip to the US and addressed a range of topics, including terrorism, climate change, and the strong Indo-US partnership, in his first speech to the US Congress.
