New Delhi: Barak Obama may not be American, after all, according to India's Department of Human Resources.
Even as the American president is set to visit India, the Ministry of HRD, popularly called Horrid Reactionary Duffers by the bemused public, has indicated that Obama may actually be part Adivasi - Indian aboriginal and part Mongolian.
This revelation came after the Ministry of HRD ruled that Indian Chess Superstar Vishwanathan Anand was probably not an Indian at all, even though he liked his daily quota of Papaddams for tea. This cased much consternation and heart-burn among the Indians. "It's like buying a Sony walkman and then finding out that it's made in a sweatshop in China," said one confused fan.
The Ministry has clarified that in case there is proof that Obama is indeed American, as he purports to be, the Minister Kapil Sibal will readily extend a heartfelt apology to all concerned
