..in real? We have a president a little more unconventional, and likes to get rid of body guards and enter the crowd, to shake hands with people, talk to them, he likes to drive by own car, fool people who are put to guard him,he like to go to shopping with his wife his wife ,like to go in restaurant and goes into her dancing, in a word is very popular, last year I was in the same restaurant with him, when dining with his wife and several times I was on the street when he comes into the crowd to shake hands with them, he believed that he has people to guard him, but I think there were 100 security men, who stayed away, without the President know, and care of him .... he tricked them into several times, but now they operate in the shadows. Have you ever been face to face with the President of your country? You saw him in real?

Hey back here, it is much different. Well, exactly opposite I can say. We had a president called Abdul Kalam who was much like your country's current one. But now there is a lady named Prathibha Patil who has not achieved anything for the past three and half years. She is a coward - keeps thousands of security men near her. Oh - she is dreaded.

When journalists asked him, why he likes to go back and talk to people , the President answer that he come from crowd, and will go there too, after he will be not more President, and he really love her wife a lot(in photo, are both, in supermarket to shopping) he wants a normal life ... he likes to joke a lot

Sadly, I have not had the chance to see the President face to face. However, I have gotten a lot closer than many people might have, if you call it that. I live across the street from the airport and then United States President George W. Bush flew in to my town for something, I forgot what, but he was here. As it turns out, he flew in on Air Force One at the airport across the street. That was the closest I got, but I watched him fly in. That was an interesting experience and the closest encounter I have with the President. Saw him fly in and then the motorcade drive down the street towards his destination right in front of my house. Then I saw him fly out. While I have not gotten face to face with any president, just sitting him fly in was pretty interesting and a memory that I will remember for some time.

You are lucky marianna. In our country let alone President, we cannot have that kind of encounters with our peoples representatives or Ministers. By chance if such an opportunity crops up at some social event like a marriage or so the multitude of people around the VIP does not leave any chance for us to have a tete-e-tete with the character. So except when some citizen gets invited to have the presidential audience, forget meeting the president in our country.

I have seen our president face to face, but all I can say is that he is pretty ugly. He looks like monkey and many people hate him, because he is corrupted and he doesn't care about his voters. I would like to never see again this ugly liar.

May I know which country's president you are talking about? I have seen my president face to face once when my band played at the presidential christmas carol Last year. I play the saxophone and we were invited to play at the 'christmas banquet'. We played silent night.

I actually saw our President a year ago, and if I would given the chance to talk for a while I would confront her and I hope it's ok that I could say whatever I kept in. I want some answer behind every issues she was facing until now...
