About five months back Barack Obama was termed ‘Under-Achiever’ by OutLook Magazine while TIME had termed Manmohan Singh ,Indian PM, as the ‘Under-Achiever’.With Obama getting to serve the USA for another term,despite all criticisms,even Congress may be hopeful towards getting the third chance in India despite all criticisms.
War of words, in terms of debate,is on between US President Barack Obama and the challenger for his post, Mitt Romney , to win over hearts of American voters .
Who will win the American hearts this time , is what the world is waiting for !
Time Magazine, in its last Asia edition, had the cover story of Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh marked as ‘The Under Achiever’. Indian as well as foreign media has been criticizing Dr Singh holding him responsible for slow pace and stagnancy of Indian economy and inflation, quite often ! Now the news is that the upcoming edition of Outlook Magazine has branded American President Barack Obama as” The Under Achiever” .
No matter, whosoever among the two is a better ‘Under-Achiever’, Dr Singh may have got some relief watching President Obama being dragged in the category of ’the under-achiever’ !
A Somali Islamist militant group is offering rewards of chickens and camels for information on the whereabouts of American President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, mocking the millions of dollars the United States has offered as bounty for leaders of the Somalian militant group which is considered affiliated to the Al-Qaeda.
An individual, holding a book for US president, Barack Obama, kept interrupting him while he was speaking on Energy Policies , in Columbus , Ohio. It continued till President Obama asked the heckler to stop interrupting and asked his men to collect the book from the man, which he was intending to handover to the president. Barack Obama promised to read the book.
This should be a lesson for protesters in our country, who may not be able to interrupt speeches of politicians but show black flags,throw black ink or even sandals and shoes to express emotions and are taken into custody.
American President Barrack Obama has insisted US Companies not to hire skilled labours from India and China in fields of science , technology and engineering instead create jobs for people of the country. He has also promised incentives to companies willing to follow his appeal. He has plans all set for the same where he wishes to reward quality teachers. He insisted schools should give teaching just not for preparing for tests but for knowledge.
This is the most a President can do and he indeed is. Not sure about China but in India , the level of education may or may not be very high but the pressure of the same remains very high from the very moment a kid starts going to kindergartens. Curriculum books are forced deep inside the bones of even the worst of a student and out of them come out the chosen engineers , doctors and scientists. Surely India would never cease to keep producing highly educated professionals because getting jobs and settling down in the USA, UK or Australia is among common dreams of Indians. Somehow we Indians are in love with Dollars and would chase any standards set to reach up to the level.
