    An inspiration and idol to countless girls, Kalpana Chawla was the first Indian woman to fly in space. Born on 17 March 1962, in Karnal, Haryana. She acquired her Bachelor of Engineering degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Punjab Engineering College in Chandigarh in 1982. After completing her graduation in Engineering, she moved from India to the US in 1982 and made her first space trip aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1997. During her first space mission, she also spoke to the then Prime Minister of India Inderjit K Gujral from the orbit. Chawla's second space trip in 2003 ended...

    Justin Trudeau has been caught on camera dancing the bhangra at a private dinner in New Delhi. The Canadian Prime Minister was back in traditional dress when he made a dramatic entrance at the event on Thursday night despite facing ridicule from Indians for his 'annoying' outfits during the trip. Trudeau walked out on stage at the Canadian High Commission to the sound of drums before breaking out his dance moves, to the approval of the crowd.

Last week – to advance her chances in 2020 - she dropped in uninvited at the National Congress of American Indians' winter session in Washington in an attempt to put to rest the controversy surrounding her claim of Native American (minority) status. She didn’t apologize for the cultural appropriation (only required of non-minority conservatives) in fact...

    For just $69, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren could settle the question of her ancestry once and for all. That is the sale price (regularly $99) that Ancestry DNA is charging for searching your family genealogy. Millions of Americans have done it, either through Ancestry, 23andMe or some other ancestry research organization. Better still, she could walk down the street in Cambridge and consult with fellow Harvard educator Henry Louis Gates Jr., who hosts the popular and fascinating PBS television program “Finding Your Roots.
  • Elizabeth Warren disingenuously doubles down defending her fake Indian heritage claims

    American Thinker ^ | 02/15//2018 | Thomas Lifson
    President Trump's needling of Senator Elizabeth Warren's unsupported claim to Native American ancestry has hit its mark.  Yesterday, the Massachusetts senator made an unannounced appearance before the National Congress of American Indians, the oldest national organization that claims to represent the interests of Native Americans, and repeated her previously debunked claims in a particularly offensive manner. The reliably progressive Boston Globe covered the speech with a straight face: Warren did not apologize for her undocumented claims that her mother's family had Cherokee blood – instead, reaffirming: "My mother's family was part Native American.  And my daddy's parents were bitterly opposed to their relationship.  So,...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren made a surprise appearance at the National Congress of American Indians Wednesday morning, forcefully responding to President Trump’s derisively calling her "Pocahontas" and addressing her claims of Native American heritage more directly - and far more expansively - than she ever has before. [Snip] She did not apologize for her claims that her mother’s family had Cherokee blood — instead, reaffirming: "My mother's family was part Native American. And my daddy's parents were bitterly opposed to their relationship. So, in 1932, when Mother was 19 and Daddy had just turned 20, they eloped." "The story they lived...

    My favorite Elizabeth Warren story involves a cookbook. Warren, who was at that time posing as a trailblazing Cherokee, actually contributed recipes to a recipe book with the name, I kid you not, "Pow Wow Chow." But here’s the best part of the story. She plagiarized some of the recipes. Yes indeed, her version of "pow wow chow" came directly from a famous French chef. My second-favorite Warren story involves breastfeeding. She once claimed to be the first "nursing mother" to take the New Jersey bar exam, making her, I suppose, the Jackie Robinson of lactating lawyers. The problem? There's...

    Remembering the Indian Soldiers Who Helped Liberate Jerusalem 100 Years Ago Indian Lancers guarding Turkish prisoners in Jerusalem in December 1917 Welcome Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and thank you for the sacrifices made by your country’s soldiers who saved the Jews of the Land of Israel 100 years ago and eventually led to the Jewish state’s creation. An idyllic fenced park is located in the middle of the Talpiot neighborhood in Jerusalem, just a four-minute Waze-directed detour from Hebron Road. This cemetery, which I visited for the first time last week, is the burial site for 79 Indian soldiers...

    LOWELL, Mass.—Sen. Elizabeth Warren is traveling to Trump-friendly areas of her state hoping to connect with his backers and provide a road map for her party to win back working-class voters. Ms. Warren’s message echoes the gloomy assessment of the U.S. economy that President Donald Trump sketched out during the 2016 campaign, though her prescription for addressing it is diametrically opposite. At a weekend town hall meeting here, the Massachusetts Democrat began with a treatise about how the economy worked far better for the middle class in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Now, Ms. Warren said, the middle class is...

    Seeking to "roll out a red-carpet welcome" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump would host him for a working dinner at the White House on Monday, the first of its kind under this administration. "The White House is very interested in making this a special visit. We're really seeking to roll out the red carpet. In fact, the two (leaders) will have dinner, a working dinner at the White House. “This will be the first dinner for a foreign dignitary at the White House under this administration. So, we think that's very significant," a senior administration official...

    A candidate for the 2018 U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts tweeted out a video on Sunday challenging Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to prove her claims of having American Indian heritage. V.A. Shiva, who is seeking the Republican nomination in 2018 and has claimed he invented email, filmed himself holding a "23andMe" DNA testing kit, which he claims requires only his saliva and a "few short days" to prove if he was a real Indian. Shiva was born in Bombay, India, while Warren's claim is about having American Indian, or Native American, heritage. "I want to challenge Elizabeth Warren...

    I fell in love with Indian food by encountering it in little hole-in-the-wall places – first at the eatery at Union Station in D.C., and again at a surprisingly wonderful strip-mall restaurant near my home. I was very happy when my local grocery chain started selling packaged, boil-in-bag versions of various Dal, Chana Masala, and other items. They weren’t like restaurant fare, just pretty good when I needed a fast Indian Flavor Fix. But they are so expensive! so I recently decided to strike out on my own and try to make some of these things at home. My...

    In a March of 2016 Hillary Clinton appeared in a debate with Bernie Sanders in Columbus, Ohio. It was aired as a CNN TV ONE DEMOCRATIC TOWN HALL. In this video clip, Hillary makes a cardinal sin that Donald Trump would be trashed for endlessly, if he had been as insensitive. Hillary Clinton referred to Native Americans as "Indians". How utterly insensitive and insulting! Here she talks about Native American land, but forgets to use her public term. Instead she uses her private term for Native Americans.

    A group of Indian Americans against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., was at the New York City India Day Parade Aug. 21 to hand out flyers against the presidential hopeful. Citing a deep concern of Hillary and former President Bill Clinton’s persistent anti-India record during the past 25 years, the group passed out about 800 of the flyers while asking Indian Americans to support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.... “As senator, Hillary voted against the India nuclear deal (former President George W.)

    Last year at CPAC I asked Donald Trump what he thought about the prospect of Elizabeth Warren for president. He paused just long enough to blast a stare at me so riddled with disgust and nausea you would have thought Mexico had just annexed Mar-a-Lago through eminent domain. The man despises Warren. And so it was stunning that Tuesday morning, as Trump celebrated his victory in the Indiana primary clinching the Republican nomination, Warren greeted him with a vicious Twitter salvo: “@realdonaldtrump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia.”

    Following his cancellation of a concert in North Carolina over a law that prohibits transgender people from using bathrooms other than their biological sex, Bruce Springsteen declared that South Carolina will be next on his "s**t list" if Governor Nikki Haley insists on using the "archaic" way of identifying herself as Indian. "I mean, it's 2016, who still says they're Indian? This isn't 19th century America, we recognize these people are actually Native Americans," said Springsteen, adding "if Governor Haley wants to disrespect herself that's her business, but I will not play another concert in South Carolina as long as...
