      I met Modi on a grad school trip in 2016 and he held a private meeting with us - just 20 students! But we were warned not to ask questions about violence against Muslims. What most struck me during the meeting is that he spoke in Hindi through a translator - even though he is fluent in English. The Indian students in our group described him talking as "like we were listening to Obama".
