With Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden currently leading United States President Donald John Trump in the polls, Narendra Damodardas Modi must be nervous.

India's prime minister, after all, had pitched for a second term for Trump at the Howdy Modi event in Houston last September.

What happens if Biden and his running mate Kamala Devi Harris -- whose mother was born in Madras -- win the Presidency this November?

We wager that Modi -- remember, how friendly he was with Trump's predecessor Barack Hussein Obama? -- will quickly be as pally with Joe and Kamala.

And no matter which party captures the White House, India's relations with the United States are rock solid, no longer governed by the fluctations of American party politics, the foundation for which was laid 15 years ago by Dr Manmohan Singh and George Walker Bush.

Dominic Xavier predicts the scene if Biden-Harris win on November 3, 2020.
