Modi, Obama to match frequencies in joint radio address

Friday, January 23, 2015
New Delhi: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take to the airwaves in a  joint radio address with US President Barack Obama during his visit to India. 

The duo will share their thoughts together on next episode of  show titled "Mann ki Baat" ( Words From My Heart) on All India Radio, to be aired on 27 January, 2015. 

While the show is usually broadcast in Hindi, it is unclear whether the US president will try to use in Hindi during the broadcast. 

During his last visit to India in 2010, Mr. Obama addressed lawmakers in Parliament and concluded his speech with the cry “Jai Hind” or hail India.

In a post on his official Twitter account, Mr. Modi said the radio show would illustrate the special bond between the two nations and requested people to send in questions using #AskObamaModi by Jan. 25.

Mr Obama is arriving in national capital later this week to attend the Republic Day celebrations as the Chief Guest, the first US President to do so.

Both leaders had, earlier, written a joint editorial named, 'Chalein Saath Saath' (Let's walk together) in Washington Post, when Mr Modi visited the US in September last year.
