What Obama Wrote About Rahul, Manmohan in his memoir?

Published Date:

In his political memoir ‘A Promised Land,’ Former  US President Barack Obama has included sketches of leaders from the US and other parts of the world. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh are reported to have found a place in the memoir.

According to the US daily, the gallery includes Russian Premier Vladimir Putin, Secretary of Defense Bob Gates, US President-elect Joe Biden, and many others.  About former PM Manmohan Singh, the article reads, “Secretary of Defense Bob Gates and the Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh both come across as having a kind of impassive integrity,”.

While quoting a paragraph from the book the New York Times reported, “Rahul Gandhi has ‘a nervous, unformed quality about him, as if he were a student who’d done the coursework and was eager to impress the teacher but deep down lacked either the aptitude or the passion to master the subject’,” reported New York Times,

Rahul was vice president of the congress during Obama’s tenure. He had met Obama during his last visit to Indian in December 2017. He had tweeted about that meeting. “Had a fruitful chat with President @BarackObama Great to meet him again,” Rahul Gandhi had tweeted.

Former President Obama joined the Republic Day celebrations in 2015 as the chief guest. During his visit to India, he had hosted “Mann ki Baat” with incumbent PM Narendra Modi. The New York Times review also reported Obama’s stand on US President-elect Joe Biden.

“Joe Biden is a decent, honest, loyal man who Obama senses ‘might get prickly if he thought he wasn’t given his due – a quality that might flare up when dealing with a much younger boss’,” the NYT article reads.

“Vladimir Putin reminds him of the tough, street-smart ward bosses who used to run the Chicago machine. Also on Putin: “Physically, he was unremarkable’,” the NYT article read.

“In a private meeting, Hu Jintao reads from stacks of prepared papers, so monotonous that Obama considers suggesting ‘that we could save each other time by just exchanging papers and reading them at our leisure’,” the NYT article read, talking about the former President of China, Hu Jintao.
