    Hi! I felt proud hope u all too shall feel the same.

    Speech by Thomas Friedman of the New York Times....
    "When we were young kids growing up in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">America</st1:country-region></st1:place>, we were told to eat
    our vegetables at dinner and not to leave them. Mothers said, 'Think of the starving
    children in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">India</st1:country-region></st1:place> and finish the dinner.'
    And now I tell my children: 'Finish your maths homework. Think of the children in
    <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">India</st1:country-region></st1:place> who would make you starve, if you don't.......

    I am proud of it too.
    See how the world changes. Yesteryears they never even thought that a country like India existed. Gudos to all those who made our country proud and also to be recognised around the world.
    Moreover, comparing India in positive way is indeed make us proud.
    who knows one day we can be a superpower country.
