Change, yes we can!
Typical of President Obama, Candid and forthcoming.
An insiders view of the man in the highest office.
The journey to get there, dealing with self doubts and triumphs.
Challenges of moving things through International diplomacy, internal politics, parliament, and public opinion.
It was always an enigma and a question I always asked of myself. Why did Barack fall of my personal expectations of him.
This book helped better understand the complexity and dynamic nature of the state of world we inhabit. Even best of intentions has to wait its turn.
Fear rides our thoughts, governs our mind, general trust deficit. Self preservation, That is so primate. Humanity means so much more.
Change, yes we can

Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know....

Extremely well told story
Extremely well told story. Baffles how Amish gets into so much detailing and research. Quite a spectacle.
Sagar does a good job of narration. Kept me glued
