Sawant grew up in Mumbai where she later studied computer science and graduated with a B. She married her husband Vivek, an engineer at Microsoft, and moved to the United States. She won 35% of the vote in the August primary election, and advanced into the general election for the at-large council position 2 against incumbent Richard Conlin, making her the first socialist to advance to a general election in Seattle since 1991.Councilman Nick Licata also declined to endorse her but spoke positively of her campaign saying, "..has been able to craft a message that is understandable, simple and eschews most of the rhetoric" and when her eventual election victory seemed unlikely, he expressed his hope that Sawant would not "disappear after the election if she loses.She represents the poor, the immigrants, the refugees – the folks who are not in our City Council offices lobbying us."

The stares that we have got from Indians make us feel very uncomfortable.Folks are pretty friendly.interestingly enough, i would prefer first generation east indian, although i do agree with your assessment that first generation would be less inclined to date outside their race. Our experience with people from East India here, men or women, have been sadly negative.
