We living in North Mumbai are not allowed to enter South Mumbai during the next two days - Obama visit- All traffic to South Mumbai is closed. We cannot visit our friends and relatives living in South Mumbai.
Qs - Why can't such hi fi visits be planned on non - festival days? didn't the government of India have a calender?
When an Indian leader visits the United States do they even cordon off a single bloc?
What we need is a real leader with true PWNage like Josip Tito when he visited Trichy. They gave him the Maharaja treatment, cordoned off entire portions of the city and erected a huge wall to hide the poverty. The city mayor got a humility lecture of a lifetime by the Yugoslav leader.
Why the heck should locals be inconvenienced over a foreigner?

Any visit including Obama or anyone else, should not have such ridiculous ristrictions. No National should be restricted from moving around freely in nation barring a certain circumference.. Its a shame that Indian government agreed to do so during the biggest festival in India
