The White House has described this week in the West Wing as 'Namaste Obama' reflecting the successful visit of President Barack Obama to India.

"That's January 23 to January 29 or "Namaste Obama," Adam Garber Video Director for the Office of Digital Strategy wrote in a White House Blog yesterday capping top stories of the week.

"This week, the President made history by being the first sitting President to make a second visit to India," Garber said as posted a 5.29 minute video.

"He and the First Lady also travelled to Saudi Arabia to pay their respects to the late King. And back at home, the President convened a meeting with US mayors and honoured outgoing Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel," Garber said.

In the video Obama is seen saying Namaste to the audience in India. The White House video then introduces Kal Penn as its foreign correspondent, who gives an insight into Obama's India trip.
