Desh Videsh 2202 - US-India Strengthen Relations 2015

Editorial February 2015

Dear Readers,

Many of you know that I am a big fan of Prime Minister Modi and his plans for the future of India. When Prime Minister Modi visited the United States back in September, I was thrilled to get the chance to see him address crowds of fans. That visit no doubt laid the groundwork for President Obama’s recent visit to India.

The first US president to visit India twice during his term in office, President Obama and Prime Minister Modi appeared to further develop not only a partnership, but also a friendship. The two leaders managed to address several issues, one of the most important being strengthening the economies of both nations. The US President even attended a Republic Day parade, a holiday that is both meaningful and significant in so many ways.

This month, we also feature a series of health and wellness articles. In this month’s Ask the Doc column, Dr. Shilpa P. Saxena discusses the benefits of integrative medicine and offers tips on how to keep some of those pesky New Year’s resolutions! Amanda Williams of Craving Thirty and The Self-Love Project is a local South Florida girl who keeps India and healthy living close to heart. Read her article on starting small when making a change – added bonus is a delicious juice recipe! For those who put off going to the dentist, Dr. Arun Garg reminds us why oral health is vital for our overall health.

As always, we love getting feedback. Whether topic suggestions for future issues or questions for our experts, email us anytime! Send your comments or questions to info@deshvidesh.com.

In closing, it’s one of our favorite times of the year – Bridal Expo season! Mark your calendars for these upcoming MyShadi Bridal Expos: Atlanta on March 1 at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel; Tampa on March 22 at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina; and Ft.
