Narendra Modi is Obama's style icon

New Delhi, Jan 26: US President Barack Obama had a secret wish-he wanted to wear a Modi Kurta himself during the banquet. Raising a toast at the banquet hosted in his honour by President Pranab Mukherjee, Obama said,"Tonight I was thinking of wearing a Modi kurta myself." He further said,"We feel your friendship, 'dosti' and I am deeply honoured."

Appreciating Narendra Modi for saying that he is tough and has a style, he said,"I most often said that my story could happen in America and of course Mr Prime Minister, your story can happen only in India."

He also recalled the tough childhood that Modi had when his father was a tea vendor and his mother was working in households. He said,"Tonight their son welcomes us as the Prime Minister of world's largest democracy."

"Now we all know about Prime Minister's legendary work ethics. He (Modi) was explaining to me on Sunday how he got only three hours of sleep, which made me feel bad. I was doing ok with five. What I didn't know that he survived an attack by a crocodile. So he is tough and he also has style."
