AMERICANS KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT INDIA

It’s my third visit to USA . First was in 2008 , then 2012 and now in 2014. I was under the impression that Americans must be knowing more about India than we know about their country. It was 4 th July . I was in the park near my apartment . American people had gathered early in the park to celebrate their Independence Day .
Casually I asked one of the American
1 If he knew what was the Capital of India
2 Prime Minister of India
3 President of India
4 Casually asked about God of Cricket : SACHIN Tendulkar
5 Sharukh Khan , the Actor
6 Amitabh Bachan
All my simple questions drew a Blank .
I was not talking to school students .
But to mature people .
When I told that I knew about
OBAMA , his wife name , name of their children , popular American actors and actresses . They were really amazed.
When I asked them that why they know nothing about India and I know so much about their country : their answer was that USA is a powerful country and number 1 .
THE BIG BROTHER ATTITUDE WAS VISIBLE !!!!!
