The tweet was in response to official White House Twitter account’s tweet quoting Obama. He thanked Modi for making the visit memorable, and also thanked Indians for the warm welcome.
It wasn’t just the pleasantries that were shared either. Modi cheekily tweeted about the bad weather that marred yesterday’s Republic Day parade in New Delhi. He too quoted Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayengey’s dialogue saying, “As for the rainy day yesterday, as you yourself said @WhiteHouse today morning, Bade Bade Deshon Mein… :)” Obama too had quoted the dialogue during his speech at the Siri Fort auditorium.
