New Delhi: Former US President Barack Obama's father is being discussed a lot in India. Let us tell you that Barack Obama has written a book in his book A Promised Land, in which he has revealed that he used to recite the Hindu mythology Ramayana and Mahabharata in childhood. It is clear from this that the Indian tradition is of special importance to him.

Love Indian Mahakavya Ramayana:

In his book A Promised Land, Barack Obama wrote, "It was probably the huge size of India. Where one-sixth of the world's population lives." More than two thousand different ethnic groups live here and more than seven hundred languages are spoken as well. ”Regarding his 2010 visit to India, he said," But this country has always had a special place in my imagination.

In this book, Obama continued, "Perhaps I thought of this for India, because while living in Indonesia. I had to listen to the stories of the Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata in my childhood." It may also be that I was more interested in Eastern religions. Apart from this, my friends used to be Indian and Pakistani during college days. These friends taught me to cook dal, rice and mince and got interested in Bollywood films. Perhaps this is why I am more attached to Eastern religions. "

"Maybe it was its (India's) sheer size, with one-sixth of the world's population, an estimated two thousand distinct ethnic groups, and more than seven hundred languages spoken," Obama writes

Obama also targeted Sonia Gandhi, "More than one political observer believed that she'd (Sonia Gandhi) had chosen Singh precisely because as an elderly Sikh with no national political base, he posed no threat to her forty year-old son, Rahul, whom she was grooming to take over the Congress Party,"
