Asian leaders arrive for Modi swearing-in

PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL THAT WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 It's the first time in India's history that so many South Asia leaders are among the guests at the swearing-in of a new prime minister. Leaders from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Mauritius were all arriving for the ceremony on Monday. Also significant was the arrival of Pakistan's prime minister to witness the inauguration of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. It's another first in the rocky history of the nuclear-armed rivals who've fought three wars since independence in 1947. Security's tight around the presidential palace where the ceremony's taking place. The event is intended to be as much a show of Modi's determination to be a key player on the global stage as a celebration of his election victory. Modi's nationalist BJP and its allies swept to power in national elections this month with a mandate for major economic reform.
