Within minutes of the  Norwegian Nobel Committee announcing the Peace Prize for Barack Obama, Indians were abuzz on Twitter with their take on the shocker.

Did the US President deserve it? A case of an award too soon?

We let the tweets speak for themselves. Here are our favourites:

@jhunjhunwala: Rakhi Sawant to share Nobel Prize with Obama for “efforts made to keep the institution of marriage alive”

@manuscrypts : Did they mean Osama? for being nice this year or something?

@GautamGhosh: Obama winning Nobel Peace Prize is like firms giving salary hikes when KRAs are set – a year before they are met! Heh!

@BDUTT If he can win then why not our Prime Minister, he deserves better than him…

@OldmonkMGM: India and Pakistan demands a Nobel Peace prize for each other for not bombing the s*** out of each other

@vijaysankaran : Nobel Peace Prize is now like the Bharat Ratna… it’s about who you are, not what you did-)

@OldmonkMGM: Pick the odd man out: The Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Barack Obama

@sidin : Obama to win Commonwealth Gold and lifetime Oscar. Also X Prize, Magsaysay and Bigg Boss 3. And Dancing With The Stars.

@MitchBenn : It’s official! George Bush was such an a***hole you can win the Nobel Peace Prize just by not being him.

@mysti : Is ‘hope for a better future’ enough to win a Nobel Prize? they should be passing those around like candies then.

@venkat2 : next in line for Obama – Khel Ratna, Bharat Ratna, Hind Purush..and Mayawati will erect a small statue next to her

    @jainnimit: I think I deserve Nobel Peace Prize more than Obama! I AM SERIOUS! What has he done for peace???

  3. Obama will surely becomes a mentor,an instrument to emulate,no matter the numbers of critics and enemies prying into his privacy and his government Be wise,don’t follow the multitude to do the wrong.Remember,Obama is God sent and a peacemaker.He deserves the prize and even more prizes on expectation.

  4. anupam banerjee

    Obama getting the Nobel is a sign of rare insight on the part of the part of the Nobel Committee.Paris Hilton is next followed by some Paki president.

  5. anupam banerjee

    The Nobel prize for Obama epitomises the annihilation of human intelligence.


  7. i think it’s too early to judge ,though Obama’s nuclear disarmament policy initiative,global climate change policy, etc are welcome steps but these are on the initial stages only……..

  8. Obama is a good choice, he wants real change, treating all equal, musulims including and he is a peacemaker. This is a recognition of the direction he took in his presidency even from his candidacy. Though gandhi did’nt get it, we need a leader like OBAMA to have peace in the world. Obama respects all people, all nations. We don’t want a thirld world war. Though US is in war in Iraq and Afghanistan, US don’t gain anything except fighting terrorism which can affct anybody who lives free in the world including India and even Pakistan.

  9. Nobel prize is no longer noble.Can’t imagine why the Norwegian selection committee has stooped so low. Forces one to suspect some ulterior motives.

  10. even Gandhiji dint get it. why him?
