As Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived at an airport in Houston on Saturday, he bent down to pick up a flower that had fallen on the ground—a gesture that left Twitterati praising him for his ‘humility’. 
 
Modi is in Houston to address the mega “Howdy, Modi! Shared Dreams, Bright Future” event at the NRG Stadium on Sunday. 
 
When Modi arrived at the airport—where he was greeted by India’s Ambassador to the US, Harsh Vardhan Shringla, and his American counterpart Ken Juster—a flower from a bouquet given to him by an American official fell to the ground. The prime minister stopped, picked up the flower and handed it to someone in his security team.  
 
On Twitter, the prime minister is being praised for his ‘simplicity’ and ‘commitment to cleanliness’ after a video of the incident surfaced.
