Barack Obama hardly misses a chance to be around Indian shades.

He says, he felt honored to kindle the first-ever Diya in the Oval office.
Diya – a lamp that symbolizes how darkness will always be overcome by light. He hopes that future presidents will continue this culture.

President admits that he was proud to be the first President to host a Diwali celebration at the White House in 2009.

No wonder why he is the most loved US President at the moment.
“On behalf of the entire Obama family, I wish you and your loved ones peace and happiness on this Diwali.”

Sir, we salute you for your kindness and shower you with all the respects you deserve!
