I am proud of Michelle Obama, she was who she was and did not choose to pander to political or other needs of the society. India needed a big lesson and I hope it gets to the people; beauty is not in the color and woman is not a trophy to flaunted. We have a long ways to go to believe, feel and act equal, but go we will.
