Israel's Friendship Day Message - 'Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge'; PM Modi Reverts With Equally Warm Response
Israel greeted India on friendship day with a Twitter message that featured the song 'yeh dosti' from Bollywood blockbuster Sholay, drawing an equally warm response from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The message had the Hindi lyrics "yeh dosti hum nahi todenge" (We will not break this friendship) of the song from the 1975 movie "Sholay", starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and Hema Malini, and emoticons conveying that Israel loves India.
It had a short montage on various meetings between Modi and his counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu, with the music from the song playing in the background. Modi responded with a tweet in Hebrew saying India and Israel have proved their friendship over time. "Thank you and wishing a Happy Friendship Day to Israel's wonderful citizens and my good friend Netanyahu," PM tweeted.
מאחל יום חברות שמח לאזרחי ישראל הנהדרים ולידידי הטוב @netanyahu
הודו וישראל הוכיחו את ידידותם לאורך הזמן. הקשר שלנו הוא חזק ונצחי. מאחל שהידידות בין המדינות שלנו תצמח ותפרח אף יותר בעתיד https://t.co/PsZTgMoXMU

"India and Israel are time tested friends. Our bond is strong and eternal! May the friendship between our nations grow and prosper even more in the times to come!" he said. Both Modi and Netanyahu are known to share a great chemistry which is visible in bilateral meetings.
Netanyahu, who failed to form a coalition after the April polls, plans to visit India ahead of the repeat elections in September. Modi visited Israel in July 2017, the first by an Indian prime minister in 70 years.
During the historic visit, the warmth between Modi and Netanyahu, also known as Bibi, was apparent.
