THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary (Agra, India) ________________________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release March 22, 2000
REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT IN PHOTO OPPORTUNITY AT THE TAJ MAHAL Agra, India
Q Mr. President, what were your thoughts when you were at the Gandhi Memorial?
THE PRESIDENT: I was thinking about Gandhi's life. I was thinking about his going to South Africa, how he decided to come back here, how he completely gave his life over to what he believed, and how if all of us just had one fraction of that commitment we could make peace in the world. That's what I was thinking.
Q Mr. President, are you sort of sad that Agra is sort of a ghost town? Would you have liked to pump hands --
THE PRESIDENT: Absolutely. I did see some people --
Q Yes, but back there. They were peering --
THE PRESIDENT: I know. I would have liked it if they were up front. I'd like that. I wanted to see them.
