Mumbai: When US President Barack Obama was talking serious business with industry honchos this evening, his wife Michelle interacted with differently-abled children at the library of Mumbai University and danced with them to the tunes of a hit number from Aaamir Khan-starrer ‘Rang De Basanti’.
During her half-hour interaction, Michelle spoke to the kids and inspired them to reach greater heights, bringing a touch of compassion and social care to the presidential visit.
"I love dancing," she told the kids. "You are very lucky and blessed. I also have two children," she said.
"Working hard, studying and having courage are the important things in life. I also studied hard in my life. I never thought I will become the first lady. But when I got a chance, I was prepared for it because of education. You can be successful and smart with education," she said at the programme organised by NGO Making A Difference.
She also invited queries from students. A girl told her that after meeting the First Lady, her dreams have come true. Michelle responded, saying "No. You are my dream. We are very proud of you."
"President Obama is trying to make this world better so that kids like you can get better opportunities," she said.
Michelle asked the kids to work hard and "educate yourselves." She signed autographs on their hands and shirts and danced with them once again to the RDB title song.
