    Mr. Devang
    Well It was last year that he had wished this. Any way it is good. But we will see his actions in India and later when he knows his election results. A man is best known he faces an adverse situation.

    1. Yes, that’s true. It was last year. My intention was to make viewers hear from Obama about Diwali.
