US President Barack Obama had written a profile for Prime Minister Narendra Modi for Time magazine as it named the Indian leader among the 100 most influential people in the world.
In the profile titled ‘India’s reformer-in-chief’, Obama has described Modi’s life story “from poverty to Prime Minister” as one that reflects the dynamism and potential of India’s rise.
“Today, he’s the leader of the world’s largest democracy, and his life story—from poverty to Prime Minister—reflects the dynamism and potential of India’s rise,” Obama said.
