A visit to the Golden temple couldn't be a part of the US President's itinerary. Reason? Probably because a picture of Obama with his head covered, offering prayers at the Harminder Sahib could provide fodder for the right-wingers back home to further confuse unsuspecting Americans about Obama's religion.
Yet, this Amritsar artist is ready with his gift just in case Obama does drop in. Harwinder Singh Gill has delicately carved Obama's portrait on a duck egg shell. Harvinder, incidentally, is a dental hygienist. (AFP Photo)
