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.
