President Obama's speech in our Lok Sabha touched a number of upbeat themes about the ties between the US and India, as such speeches tend to do. Good stuff, but not overly enlightening. So I read through his speech for signs of more hard-nosed rhetoric. Things to make us think a bit, if we want to.
I found two.
* "This is the bond that we share. It's why we insist that nothing ever justifies the slaughter of innocent men, women and children."
* "Faced with such gross violations of human rights, it is the responsibility of the international community —- especially leaders like the United States and India —- to condemn it. And if I can be frank, in international fora, India has often shied away from some of these issues."
Think about it.
