US President attended a large number of public functions. He comes out to be a warm and spontaneous person enjoying his visit.
His visit also achieved considerable for India. The logjam on Nuclear agreement which could not be broken by officials melted by intervention of the leaders. There were other initiatives including investment, trade, support to India's case of permanent membership of UN security council, military cooperation, support to make in India, etc.
There were many firsts like first US President visiting India twice (and some predict that he come yet again based on Michael Obama's bytes to a News channel about trip to Agra), First US president to be outdoor, that too in a foreign country, much against SOP of US secret service, for two hours and also things like his and Modi`s one on one talk at Hyderabad house.
He sounded positive, assuring and happy. He also was seen enjoying the events including RD parade.
Our security apparatus, which was doubted by American Secret Service, was very successful in ensuring foolproof security for the visit though it did inconvenience people of Delhi. These men and women who did this work tirelessly need our kudos.
All the issues are not resolved. Soon we may find India and US sparing at WTO. the emission cut is also a flash point. The meeting ground though has been found. A lot of credit goes to personal chemistry between Modi and Obama.
Naysayers will come up with many drawbacks and criticism of the visit but I think it is a successful visit in which we gained much without compromising on our stand.
Actual outcome and its impact cannot be predicted now and would be clear in years to come
