7: I feel sorry for Mr. Kumar for by being appointed into Obama's regime he has to tow the line carefully in case of bruising Obama's massive ego. President Obama is a prima donna that like Michael Jackson surrounds himself with "yes men" and unfortunately Mr. Kumar has been roped in.

11: Dear S. Kumar Ji,
We are really proud of you for being appointed with key post in U.S. Indians are always intelligent but this is not accepted by most number of Indian leaders (Neta Ji). They should be properly communicated regarding achievements of Indians in India and also abroad and they must be taught for reflecting fair & honest character in the soiciety.
