Namaste Trump: US President Donald Trump embarked on his two-day visit to India from Ahmedabad on Monday morning. He received a grand welcome at the helipad and did a 22-km long roadshow with PM Narendra Modi on the way to newly-revamped Motera Stadium. Trump was first taken to Sabarmati Ashram as the first stop of his visit to India.
