Judge Srinivisan at Louisville Airport

Judge Sri Srinvisan | MikeGhouseforIndia.blogspot.com 

If you are keeping up with politics, you may know him. He is Sri Srinivasan, a Judge in the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and was one of the most considered Judges for the Supreme Court bench.

This is one hell of happy news for the Indian Americans. It’s an expression of integration, that Indians are fully participating and contributing members of the society at large. Despite the flaws in our democracies (American and Indian), we are the most inclusive societies, however both the societies have developed a streak of intolerance and bigotry, and as Indian Americans, and Americans we have to mitigate this growing intolerance before it consumes us.  Those who deny are welcome to live in their fantasy world. 

One of the nicest things of traveling is meeting people!  A few months ago, I ran into Dr. Vivek Murthy, the Surgeon General of the United States in Phoenix Airport, a humble, affable man from my state; Karnataka, India.

This morning at the Louisville Airport, sitting across in front me was Judge Srinivasan. I thought the face was familiar, but he looked a lot younger in his T-Shirt than he looks in the professional picture. I was not sure if it was him, but could not resist walking up to him. The great man stood up to shake hands, and I asked him if he was related to Judge Srinivasan, he laughed and said it’s him.

I am not sure about other Indians, but I read up on almost all Indians who are contributors to the society and have written about them – Nikki Haley, Bobby Jindal (he is not to be proud of, he has betrayed his own heritage and does not want to be called Indian American), Dr. Vivek Murthy and others.  All are humble folks.
We had a little conversation and we agreed to do an interview in the next few weeks. It will be videotaping the interview, what would you like to ask him?  Send me your questions.
