"Working hard, studying and having courage are the important things in life. I also studied hard in my life. I never thought I will become the first lady. But when I got a chance, I was prepared for it because of education. You can be successful and smart with education," she said at the programme organised by NGO Making A Difference.

When US President Barack Obama was talking serious business with industry honchos on Saturday evening, his wife Michelle interacted with differently-abled children at the library of Mumbai University and danced with them to the tunes of a hit number from Aaamir Khan-starrer Rang De Basanti.
During her half-hour interaction, Michelle spoke to the kids and inspired them to reach greater heights, bringing a touch of compassion and social care to the presidential visit.
"I love dancing," she told the kids. "You are very lucky and blessed. I also have two children," she said. Michelle danced with students at Mumbai University.
