Bibi does a Modi: What Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu meant by his IT success formula

first_imgIt must have come as a pleasant surprise for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose penchant for inventing acronyms is known very well now.As he landed in Tel Aviv today – the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Israel – Modi was warmly greeted by his Israeli counterpart Benjamin ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu in a ceremony at Ben Gurion airport.In the short speeches by the two leader that followed the reception, Netanyahu hailed India’s ties with Israel and then presented a formula for the future.”Formula for success is simple. It is I and T squared, which equals to the Indian talent (IT) and the Israeli technology (IT),” he said.In presenting his own version of an IT reading, Netanyahu was following in the footsteps of his “good friend” Modi. In May this year, while inaugurating the Supreme Court’s digital filing system, Modi had come up with his own equation: “IT + IT = IT”, which he explained as “Information Technology + Indian Talent = India Tomorrow”.Among the other famous acronyms Modi has invented so far are SCAM (Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav, and Mayawati), ABCD (Adarsh, Bofors, Coal and Damaad), RSVP (Rahul, Sonia, (Robert) Vadra and Priyanka), and SPORTS (Skill, Perseverance, Optimism, Resilience, Tenacity, and Stamina).ALSO READWelcome to Israel, my friend Modi: Benjamin Netanyahu at Ben Gurion airport What India can gain from Israel’s defence strategy: All you need to knowALSO WATCHPM Netanyahu greets PM Modi: Aapka swagat hai, mere dostlast_img read more
