Did the English language media go overboard on the Bush visit?

For the record, I am no anti-American. I think it's great that finally American and Indian interests are beginning to converge. We might as well be prudent to remember the longstanding adage that has been associated with politics - There are no permanent friends, only permanent interests.

Yet, as a journalist by training, I thought the Indian English language media fawned a little too much on the Bush visit. Take a look at these headlines... The Times of India even had a headlined that heralded the birth of a "Ind-US Civilisation"! But HT's banner headline the day after Bush landed takes the cake: "He's a friend"!
