Obamaís India Legacy - Sunday Guardian

Guv Jindalís ID test: Can Indian-Americans go all American? - Swapan Dasgupta, Times of India
Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal has, quite understandably, drawn flak in the ‘old country’ for his unequivocal rejection of any prefix to his identity as an American.
