Bharara, Jindal, Harris: They are Americans first

Clearly, all three — Bharara, Jindal and Harris — want the Indian American community to release them from their expectations and let them pursue their plans. After all, how wrong and insensitive can it be to want to be just “American”, which is who they are, essentially?
They thought, Bharara writes in his autobiography, trying to make sense of an understandably tumultuous phase in his life, that even though this man hailed from India — he was born in Ferozepur — he seemed to be going out of his way to act “American”. “The thing is,” Bharara writes, “I am American.”(REUTERS)
