★THE REAL FIGHTER★
On my 7th birthday, in 1970, I left India and came to America: to this land of incredible opportunity. As a kid, I learned from my parents, teachers, coaches, and friends that what mattered most was Truth — to uncover it, share it and fight for it. That core value is THE foundation of the America Dream. And my life has been about fighting for Truth, at every step.

★THE REAL INNOVATOR★
The Founding Fathers created a revolutionary nation in which innovation, education, creativity, and meritocracy flourished. Those core values drew my family to immigrate to the United States, and I’ll always be grateful for the opportunities I’ve found here. Now I’m committed to preserving, protecting, and expanding those opportunities for the citizens of Massachusetts and for all Americans. That’s the new American Revolution, and I hope you’ll join me in this fight.

★THE ALL-AMERICAN INDIAN★
I have lived the American Dream. I grew up playing baseball, playing soccer, having a paper route, while running my own small lawn mowing and snow shoveling businesses as a kid. Being selected by American Legion Boys State to represent my high school, and later being awarded a U.S. Fulbright Scholarship were all part of this incredible journey. What an honor to be in the state of Massachusetts — the home of the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins and Celtics!
