Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the US dominated the headlines for the past two days. Thursday saw the most anticipated events of the trip – Modi’s high-level bilateral talks with US President Joe Biden, followed by an address to the US Congress, and then the grand state banquet at the White House.

Modi’s visit to the US came next only to the unfortunate implosion of a Titanic-research submersible on the New York Times‘s homepage on Friday, with its biggest story headlined “Biden Seeks to Bolster Ties With Modi While Soft-Pedaling Differences.”
“President Biden emphasized common ground with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India during a lavish state visit on Thursday, publicly skirting points of friction over the government’s crackdown on human rights in India and Russia’s war in Ukraine,” it stated.
