Obama says that he would like to have dinner with Mahatma Gandhi

US President Barack Obama has said given a chance he would like to have dinner with Mahatma Gandhi, whom he considers as a real hero.
Obama called for students to take task and to learn from their failures so that they succeed in the end.
"Hi. I'm Lilly. If you can have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be," Obama was asked by one of the students.

"Dinner with anyone dead or alive? Well, you know, dead or alive, that's a attractive big list," Obama responded amidst laughter. The next second he was serious.

"You know, I think that it might be Gandhi, who is a actual hero of mine," Obama said. "Now, it would almost certainly be a really small meal because he didn't eat a lot," he said amidst laughter. But Mahatma Gandhi is someone who has enthused people across the world for the past several generations, he said.
"In my life, I have always looked to Mahatma Gandhi as an inspiration, because he embody the kind of transformational change that could be made when normal people come together to do extraordinary things," he wrote in the ethnic India Abroad newspaper last year.
