Former US President Barack Obama made several interesting revelations in his memoir ”A Promised Land”. The former American president revealed that though he first visited India during his presidential visit, he was always fascinated by the country.
When he used to live in Indonesia, Obama said that he would listen to the stories of the Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata. He also revealed that he had a group of Indian and Pakistani friends who taught him how to cook dal and keema. These friends aroused his interest in eastern religions and Bollywood.
Obama in his memoir gave a special mention to India and said that the country has always held a place in his heart.
