Everyone has his own Gandhi to thank for

Barack Obama‘s three-day visit sent the Indian media into a paroxysm of irrational exuberance. Pity the President of the United States was already in the air when some acid pens got working.

    Classy cartoon and a wonderful caption!

  2. Pulikesh the Last Says:

    Good one, but Obama does not sport his wealth on his stomach like a lot of other professional politicians, in India and elsewhere.

  3. Sudipta Chatterjee Says:

    Hahaha – nice compilation!

    Although, Greatbong’s article throws some very different light on the matter.

  4. Indian Homemaker Says:

    I liked most of what he said. I think many of our political leaders would benefit from hiring Obama’s speech writers.

    And I agree with Pulikesh above.

  5. Somebody Says:

    Sudipta,

    ‘Although, Greatbong’s article throws some very different light on the matter.’

    For once the comments space of the article you mention is much more interesting than the write-up itself. Some classy debate out there.
