    Me, Myself, and I.President Obama, speaking to an audience of mostly young people celebrating India’s Republic Day in New Delhi on Tuesday, told the crowd, “I realise that the sight of an American president as your chief guest on Republic Day would have once seemed unimaginable. But my visit reflects the possibilities of a new moment.” He pointed out that he was the first American president to participate in the country’s Republic Day and boasted, “And I’m the first American president to come to your country twice!” The president went on to refer to himself an astonishing 118 times in...

CHIDANAND RAJGHATTA TIMES NEWS NETWORK[ THURSDAY, JULY 21, 2005 11:14:33 PM ] WASHINGTON: President Bush will most likely visit India in January 2006, but the $ 5 billion question is whether he will be in New Delhi for Republic Day.

    Monday India celebrates Republic Day - and worries neighbors, especially Pakistan. NEW DELHI – Every Republic Day, India struts its military stuff, dragging out the latest ballistic missiles and tanks and parading the finest soldiers on the subcontinent. But Monday, on this year's anniversary, India has a bit more to strut about. Just five years after US-imposed sanctions turned India and Pakistan into virtual pariah states for their nuclear-weapons tests in 1998, India has emerged as America's "strategic partner" in South Asia. Far more than its alliance with Pakistan to hunt down Al Qaeda and Taliban remnants, America's new relationship...
