    EM ASIA FX-Indian rupee rallies as PM Modi set for second term

    * Early counting trends suggest massive mandate for ruling party * South Korean won scales one-week high * Indonesian rupiah recovers from previous session's losses (Adds text, updates prices) By Aby Jose Koilparambil May 23 (Reuters) - The Indian rupee gained as much as 0.4% on Thursday after early counting trends suggested a comfortable victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition, setting the stage for his second term with a stronger mandate. Exit polls had predicted a clear win for Modi in the election held over April and May, and the initial counting leads came in line with those predictions. Most other Asian currencies drifted lower but fared better than regional equities markets as stability in the Chinese yuan helped stave off pressure from U.S.-China trade tensions.
