Vladimir Putin may not be a popular leader in the western countries, but India will try to be in his good books when he visits India next week. Putin has been invited to address a joint session of Parliament, an honour last given to US President Barack Obama in 2010. Coming a month before Obama's scheduled visit, the government is keen to give the Russian President's visit some top rankings. During his first meeting with Putin, PM Modi had invited him to visit Kudankulam in south India, where a Russia-made nuclear reactor was built. But Putin is more keen in spending at Delhi with appointments and agreements.
