Say what you want about President Obama, but you can no longer say he never risked his life for our country.
Mani Bhavan, where Mahatma Gandhi stayed during his freedom struggle against the British, is among five places the U.S. president is visiting in Mumbai.
“We told the authorities to remove the dry coconuts from trees near the building. Why take a chance?” Mani Bhavan’s executive secretary, Meghshyam Ajgaonkar, told the BBC.
Last week American security officers inspected Mani Bhavan and its surroundings along with other places the president is likely to visit.
Don’t laugh. Have you ever been hit on the head with a coconut? I didn’t think so. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here to talk about it … because you’d be dead.
This is how you know you’ve made it: people change the landscape and agricultural profile of an entire country just for your safety. The only landscaping anybody ever changed for me was when my dad put a cone over a hole in our backyard that I almost rolled my ankle in.
There’s no word yet on what other changes Mother Nature will have to make during the president’s 10-day trip through Asia.
