Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump on Sunday addressed a mega event of Indian-Americans at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The event - Howdy, Modi: Shared Dreams, Bright Future - was attended by over 50,000-strong crowd, making it a largest ever event addressed by a foriegn leader on the American soil.
After the event, Modi and Trump interacted with kids who performed at the event and a "lucky boy" got the chance to take a selfie with two of the world's tallest leaders. A video shared by the prime minister's office shows the two leaders stopping by for a brief interaction with kids. During the interaction, it appeared that Trump noticed a mobile in the boy's hand and apparently asked whether he wants to click a selfie.
The boy quickly came forwards and clicked a picture with Trump and Modi. After that, Trump shook his hand while Modi gave him a pat on the back. The video, which was tweeted at 9:07 am, was liked by over 43,000 users and got more than 7,000 retweets. "That kid got a selfie that most world leaders wouldn't get," wrote a user.
Who is this "lucky boy"?
The lucky boy, who got a chance to click selfie with US President Trump and PM Modi, is Satvik Hegde. He is an Indian-American from Karnataka's North Kannada district. His parents name is Prabhakar Hegde and Medha Hegde. The 9-year-old boy is a Yoga enthusiast.
