President Barack Obama toasts Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. This is the first state banquet given by President Obama.
Singh tells Obama: "Mr President, your journey to the White House has captured the imagination of millions and millions of people in India. You are an inspiration to all those who cherish the values of democracy, diversity, and equal opportunity." (Applause.)
"Mr President, I can do no better than to describe your achievements in the words of Abraham Lincoln who said — and I quote — "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It is the life in your years." (Applause.)
