“Dear Obama! Welcome to India” - Professor M.S.Rao

We Indians are very glad to roll out red carpet to the US President Obama who is going to visit India in the second week of November 2010. We wholeheartedly invite you to visit this land of peace where truth and non-violence are the pillars. Obama himself was a great follower of Mahatma Gandhi and his ideals of peace and non-violence.

About Obama

Indians love and respect leaders of all parts of the world especially the leaders who have had humble beginnings. Indians love Abraham Lincoln as he was a symbol of hard work, hope, success and opportunity. He rose above the difficulties that life presented him. So is the case of Obama who also rose from ranks despite several hardships. He was the first African-American to become the 44th president of America on January 20, 2009. He was an author, editor, lawyer, politician and above all a great humanist He is an inspiration to the poor and downtrodden. He has become a symbol of hope and opportunity for billions of people all over the world. He proved that neither religion, nor region, nor color is a barrier to become the President of America. He proved to the world that man can achieve anything and everything in his lifetime. He was awarded with Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 by the Norwegian Nobel Committee for his commitment for global peace.

Similarities between India and America

Both India and America have several similarities such as both are democratic countries striving for global peace and security while India is the largest and the America is the oldest democracy in the world. We have several challenges, of which the major one is fighting terrorism. Time and again, both have declared their commitment to fight terrorism and ensure global peace and prosperity.


America alone cannot fight against terrorism. America needs India as much as India needs America. India is an aspiring and rising global power that is going to impact the world in the years to come. India currently is far different from the India around 50 years ago. India sustained democracy despite facing several challenges. This is the biggest strength of India. In addition, India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

We Indians expect Americans to handhold and take our country forward. It is a well admitted fact that India treats America as a natural allay while the America describes India as an indispensable partner. Both America and India must partner together not only for progress but also to bring stability, peace and prosperity for the mankind.

We Indians expect less of rhetoric and more of performance and commitment from Obama on several issues both locally and globally. We are optimistic that the visit would promote better bilateral relations between both the counties. We are bullish that the America handholds India in all areas for the peace and prosperity of both Americans and Indians.

We are sure Obama’s visit to India will be fruitful and strengthen the relations between the two countries further. Let us partner for progress. Let us walk and work together for global peace and prosperity.

We once again welcome Obama wholeheartedly to the land of Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi where truth and non-violence are the cornerstones.

Not only America, no nation in the World alone can fight Terrorism. All the peace loving countries in the world have to strategically unite together in the fight of terrorism. America acknoledges that India has emerged as one of the powerful country and it has enormous potential and very large market.This is why America is very keen to partner with India to further its interest.India must respond positively.
President Obama with his candid speech and spontaneous reply to question answer session with the Students of St. Xavier College has proved that he the world's Top Leader.
