Default Jews of Indian origin came out in numbers to welcome Indian PM on his Israel visit

In the link---the boy in the photos besides the old person in Indian clothes and behind the Indian flag is son of my friend , who is an Israeli of Indian origin.

Most of the Jews of Indian Origin in Israel originally hail from my state---Maharashtra . Jews were never persecuted in India and many maintain a deep bond with India even in Israel.

I was in the Australian military back in the early 1960's.

This was back in the days of SEATO.

We moored in , what was then " Bombay ", now called , " Mumbai ".

Its was quite a cultural shock to go from the open spaces of Australia, to the multitudes of the Indian population.

" Bombay ' in those days was divided in to ( 4 ? ) Main sections, these were also in distinct architectural buildings, from my memory, the Jewish buildings where of a round structure, and covered a fairly large area of " Bombay " .

I imagine that " Bombay " has changed a lot in the last 60 years, the " Indian's " of ALL denominations ( Hindu, Christian, Janist's, Sikh's and Jewish, were very friendly and welcoming back then, I imagine they are all still the same.

Its called Mumbai now as it was called before the name was corrupted to Bombay under the British, and coastal security is now very tight post the 26/11 fiasco.

However, Indian people of all faiths are still very welcoming of our guests, even Pakistani guests, although not as naive as we were before Kargil.
