The visit of President Obama and his wife has dominated the news in India for quite some time now. Those who have been with the President’s entourage during this period have noticed a visible change in his mood. During the three days of his visit to India I am told that when he first arrived here he looked preoccupied and depressed, undoubtedly because of the stunning defeat of the Democrats in the recent Congressional elections in the US. However it appears that his exposure to a number of pleasant situations and people in this country clearly buoyed his spirits, which showed a visible change in his disposition. The clouds of despair and depression, thankfully, do not stay long and sunshine does come through once they are gone.
