    There is definitely a lot of drama with the whole Obama and India situation. It seems that Obama’s foreign policy is a total 180 from Bush’s. With that said, I think that Obama and Michelle are trying to develop a relationship with India.

  2. Here is what Chipsticks of had to say about the media:

    I’m not making this up: the headline story on Time magazine’s Page site is that Sarah Palin will address the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association annual convention tomorrow. Much further down the page there are just some pool reports on the President’s day in India.

    Seriously don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

      LMBAO It’s Sheer MEDIOCRITY fronting as newsworthy. Corporate America own and control the networks and the propoganda rags. There is NO news, just noise, lies, spin and distortion, which i sbeing manipulated for the masses.

  3. Michelle Obama: A complete natural

    Mumbai: A dancing Michelle Obama has become the defining image of the Obamas’ maiden visit to India. The US First Lady hit the dance floor not just once, but twice.

    The whole country watched Michelle Obama shaking a leg to hit Bollywood number Rang De Basanti during her interaction with school kids in Mumbai on Saturday. Then again on Sunday, while celebrating Diwali with children from a school in south Mumbai, she broke into a jig to join kids performing a Konkani folk dance, even inspiring the US President to join her on the dance floor.

    On both occasions, Michelle Obama joined in the dance spontaneously and got right into the spirit of things. The result was an immediate connect with the children.

    “Barack and Michelle Obama were both so friendly,” said one of the school kid. “We were pinching ourselves as we weren’t sure if we were dreaming,” said another.

    It was a “mind-blowing” experience for the children.

    Michelle even shared her experience while growing up with college students.

    “Even though my parents couldn’t give us material things, they gave me and my brother strong values. They taught us to treat others with dignity and respect, to push for excellence in every single thing we did,” Michelle Obama said.

    “She is very cool – the fact that she wanted to interact with school kids. We would not have expected it of any other politicians in our country, or any other country,” said one of the students.

    On just her first visit to India, the Michelle Obama impact was strongly felt in Mumbai. Not only did she connect with Young India, but she also once again emerged as a person with a strong, independent and vibrant personality.

    Children know! They are the real truth tellers!

    • Ametia says:

      LOL The children comments are so revealing. FLOTUS is the real deal, and these kids are precious bright lights.

      • Flotus made them feel comfortable & she lavished love on them.

      • Ametia says:

        Love is all there is.

      • Ametia says:

        Again, the American media is doing its best to blackout the India trip with POTUS & FLOTUS. to them, our president and First Lady are just Brown folks visiting other brown folks…

        We know and don’t care what the media pun DUNCES think, we just want factual reporting of events and news.

        There’s more buzz about KO & MSNBC and teh Republicans. We no longer have a viable free media in this country, and it is SHAMEFULLY disgusting.

      • Precisely. If it’s positive about the President, the MSM will not report it. They want the President to fail. Think back a few weeks ago, there was a media black-out on his rally of 35,000 people, in a swing state, 2 weeks before election day. That was stunning. But let Palin run with a 1000 supporters, it’s wall to wall coverage.

        The MSM can no longer hide their distain. I see them.

    • Ametia says:

      I loved this video. American tv won’t air these kinds of awesome videos of the youth expressing their appreciation for our president.

      • Sriram says:

        Truth be told, I wish we could do this with our politicians and leaders in India with Indians asking the tough questions, but sadly it does not happen. Though I must admit that President Obama does this regularly with students in US, though its probably not televised fully.

      • Ametia says:

        That’s both interesting and sad. Although President Obama is able to communicate with US students, it is generally done in a huge arena, with the exception of a few who visit him at the White House.

        Our media is no longer FREE. At least I don’t think it is. The message of hope and change has been drowned out with the rhetoric of fear mongering, hate, lies and distortion.

      • Sriram,

        Who are the little kids in uniform? Those pics are priceless. They are so adorable. I could just hug & kiss them.

      • Sriram says:


        Follow this link, it will tell you who the kids are and what President Obama said to them.

      • “I know you people have problems. But keep up your studies. Once you do that you can make your mark in life,” Mohammad quoted Obama as telling the kids, who are mostly children of heritage workers.

        As warmth pervaded the atmosphere, Mohammad turned a translator and explained to the kids in Hindi what Obama said in English.

        When emotions speak, language does not matter.

        Nothing but truth. It brings tears to my eyes. The kids are so precious. The youngest little girl is a darling. I can see how she got the President’s eye! God bless them.

      • Ametia says:

        BTW, these youth ask more intelligent questions of our president than the so-called journalist.

      • I know. They need to teach American journalists a thing or two.

    • Sriram says:

      The questions asked by students were better than the ones asked by Indian journalists too. Indian journalists are no better than the ones in US. They have no idea of what to ask and frankly they just don’t do their research. I actually highlighted the high pitched shouting points in the Indian media in my blog.

  4. Sriram says:

    I was watching his interaction with students and politics in US and also what he has said throughout the trip. I just feel that there is unwanted Obama bashing and undue expectations out of him after what George W. Bush did for India.

    • Hi, Sriram!

      Welcome to 3 Chics! It is a joy watching the expressions on the faces of those darling children. They are so happy. Children are the best judges in knowing when someone is genuine and real. It’s a shame when some of America’s own people are too filled with hate to see the good this President is doing for the country.

      • Sriram says:

        I will have to agree with you. I am an Indian and though there are many thorny issues in a country to country relationship due to politics and policy compulsions, I find that its not as bad between US and India today as it is being exaggerated in Indian and US media.

        I get the frustration of people in US but realistically, after 8 years of over spending and expensive wars we cannot ask someone to fix all issues in 2 years.

      • Oh, but didn’t you know? These people expect the President to snap his fingers and all is well in a matter of months. It’s the double standard that’s put on our President. They expect him to be 3 or 4 times better than any other President and still that isn’t good enough. But we all know why?

      • Ametia says:

        Interesting, it appears that India is charming POTUS & FLOUTS.

        America, with its land of the free and home of the brave is very inpatient, and not as receptive to all that change and hope they thought they wanted.

        I like SG2, tend to look to our youth whether here or abroad. Our futures depend on them. We have some astute and very intelligent youth in our midst.

    • Ametia says:

      Hi Sriam. Welcome to 3 Chics. Thanks for sharing your perspectives. We appreciate it.

      • Sriram says:

        I totally agree that there are many Americans who think beyond their age and limitations and I personally want to see a growing and vibrant USA.

        There are moments when I wonder if this is the same nation that sent the first people to Moon and created benchmarks to achieve by others in science and technology. I believe that all the investments that go into education and Obama’s campaign direction of getting more kids in US to reach for math and science as careers is the way forward. I was just formulating my own blog post on the past and present of US education and science and technology.

      • Ametia says:

        Science & math and technology are keys, for sure. We’d love it if you’d share your thoughts on US education at 3 Chics . Thank you.

      • I’ll delete it, Sriram, and email her your info.
