New Age Americas!!
Many a times it happens in the history - a simple photograph unfolds a greater story about the changing world. This is one such picture (thanks to my classmate who shared it with me) - amazing one!!
It says more about Obama as a leader - one who appreciates the dignity of labour and respects his fellow human being. The worker looks like a Mexican origin!! It definitely takes some compassion towards fellow human being to recognize our support staff - starting from the maid in our homes till the office support staff. I think this says much about the new age Americas….Well done, Mr.President! You are leading by example!
ps - Ok, for those skeptical minds who think this is part of Obama’s political image building exercise considering the impending US elections…..so what? atleast he is projecting this as a good leadership gesture….. You should still remember the other white house picture when the US hunted Bin Laden…….
ps 2 (only for Bollywood and Kollywood followers ) - Remember the scene in Munna Bhai MBBS / Vasool Raja MBBS where the hero hugs a cleaner and makes his day!!! ………our Indian movie makers probably are much ahead in times!!! :)
