THIS PLACE IS HOME TO EXTRAORDINARY PERSPECTIVES FROM THE ORDINARY LIFE OF AN UNDERDOG - EARNED IN RICH MEASURE THROUGH EXPERIENCES OF JOY AND SORROW!
For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers.

Folks, I have not yet responded to comments on my previous post "War for Peace." I will do so in the days to come. My apologies for the delay!

Dear Rak,I was in too bad a mood.But this post was good enough to 'Change' that :)Hope the US and world offer him the necessary support to bring all his dreams to realisation...love, devika
There is a lot of hype around Obama now and I seriously dont understand why are we giving him a lot of importance! Nevertheless, I just hope he lives upto everyones expectations.
He delivers the best!
I very much liked this part of the speech! (I'm less convinced about swearing on the bible.)
Hi Rakesh! TGIF!! ;)Great speech! Like Peter noticed, there are some amazing things in US politics. Let's credit it to tradition...Blogtrotter, still posting on Delhi! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
Hope he will make an effort to change the Big Brother attitude of America and strive for a peaceful world.
Watched it live, and did feel uplifted. Very little is impossible for a determined soul:)
His speech was just awesome. Watched it live on TV :D Nothing short! Loved it. Hope he shows them in action. A phenomenal responsibility on his shoulders.
Just wait and see whether he will be able to fulfil his promises or not...
