NEW DELHI: The three-day whirlwind tour of US President Barack Obama and wife Michelle came to a fitting end with a grand banquet hosted by President Pratibha Patil at Rashtrapati Bhawan on Monday evening.
Obama takes back with him not just the experience of India but memorabilia of a leader he has evoked several times in the past three days. Patil presented the US president with a bust and two books on Mahatma Gandhi including a photo-biography by German Peter Ruhe and `The Life of Mahatma Gandhi' by US journalist Louis Fischer. The Obamas were also gifted a painting of the couple by an artist.
