Like A Student Eager To Impress The Teacher’: Obama Writes About Rahul In His Memoir

Former U.S. President Barack Obama says Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has a “nervous, unformed quality” about him like a student eager to impress the teacher but lacking aptitude and passion to “master the subject.” The New York Times reviewed Mr. Obama’s memoir ‘A promised Land’ in which among other issues, the first Black American President has talked about political leaders from around the world. On Mr. Gandhi, Mr. Obama says he has “a nervous, unformed quality about him, as if he were a student who’d done the coursework and was eager to impress the teacher but deep down lacked either the aptitude or the passion to master the subject,” according to The New York Times review. The review said in the memoir “We are told of the handsomeness of men like Charlie Crist and Rahm Emanuel, but not the beauty of women, except for one or two instances, as in the case of Sonia Gandhi.” Former U.S. Secretary of Defence Bob Gates and former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh both come across as having a kind of impassive integrity, the review states. Mr. Obama was the first African-American president of the United States. He visited India twice as the U.S. President — in 2010 and 2015.
