To Mark Swearing In of New U.S. President Donald Trump

Mumbai — U.S. Consul General Thomas L. Vajda and President of Namaste America Atul Nishar co-hosted a ball at the U.S. Consulate General to mark the swearing-in of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump.  The event follows a long history of successful inaugural events that the Consulate has hosted in Mumbai, and represents the second time that the Consulate and Namaste America have partnered to host an inaugural ball.  Reliance Industries was the presenting supporter of the event.

The evening began with a spectacular performance by the “Guru of Dance” Shiamak Davar and his dance company.  The dancers’ high-quality and spirited presentation thrilled the audience, and brought life to Shiamak’s exquisite choreography.  Another highlight of the event was the live telecast of President Trump delivering his first address as President from Washington, D.C.

“What better way to showcase the bonds between our two countries than by co-hosting this wonderful evening for Indians and Americans to come together to mark an important event in American democracy – the inauguration of a new U.S. President – and the democratic values and principles we both share,” said Consul General Vajda.

“It is an extreme honour and a moment of pride for us to co-host this ball to celebrate the 45th President of USA – Mr. Donald Trump. India and the United States being natural partners, I am confident that President Trump and Prime Minister Modi will continue to work to improve the economy and standard of living in both countries”, said Atul Nishar, the President of Namaste America.

The event was attended by a diverse cross-section of Mumbai society.
