Barack Obama Mumbai, Nov 7 (IANS) Making his entry onto the podium amid loud applause and starting with a ‘namaste’, US President Barack Obama told students at the St. Xavier’s College here that he doesn’t like speaking after his wife Michelle because “she’s very good”.

“I don’t like speaking after Michelle. As you heard her, she’s very good,” Obama said amid laughter from the 300 odd students of six colleges of the city.

Addressing the students before him, the US first lady spoke passionately about herself, her upbringing and encouraged the youngsters to keep having “gigantic dreams”.
