On Mahatma Gandhi
"The America of today has its roots in the India of Mahatma Gandhi and the non-violent social action movement for Indian independence which he led," said Obama's message on the birth anniversary of Gandhi in October 2009.

In an answer to a question by a ninth grader whom he would like to have dinner with, Obama said in November 2009: "I think it might be Gandhi, who is a real hero of mine... he's somebody who I find a lot of inspiration in...it would probably be a really small meal because he didn't eat a lot."

On terrorism
"Both countries have been victims of catastrophic terrorist attacks and we have a shared interest in succeeding in the fight against Al Qaeda and its operational and ideological affiliates," Obama said in an article written as a Democratic presidential candidate in February 2008.

On outsourcing
"It's a tax code that says you should pay lower taxes if you create a job in Bangalore, India, than if you create one in Buffalo, New York," Obama said while announcing a revision of the taxation system in May 2009.

"One of the keys to job creation is to encourage companies to invest more in the US. But for years, our tax code has actually given billions of dollars in tax breaks that encourage companies to create jobs and profits in other countries...I want to change that. Instead of tax loopholes that incentivise investment in overseas jobs, I'm proposing a more generous, permanent extension of the tax credit that goes to companies for all the research and innovation they do right here in America," Obama said in a speech at Ohio in September 2010.

On miscellaneous topics
"At a time when other countries are competing with us like never before, when students around the world in Beijing, China, or Bangalore, India, are working harder than ever, and doing better than ever, your success in school is not just going to determine your success, it's going to determine America's success in the 21st century," Obama told students at a school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in September 2006.

Obama said at the India-US strategic dialogue in June 2010: "Secretary (of State Hillary) Clinton, I think as you may be aware, is a great admirer of India, and I know the sentiment is shared in return. In fact, I'm told that one of the secretary's favourite restaurants in Delhi added a new item to the menu - the Hillary Platter. This is true. What does it have - chapati?" (Text: IANS)
