Prime Minister Narendra Modi was seen heartily laughing with US Senator John Cornyn just as he took stage at Howdy Modi event in Houston on Sunday. Quite a bonhomie was at display with that!

Not just John Cornyn, PM Modi met United States Congressional delegation enthusiastically. His body language was jovial throughout.
