Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

He is an independent candidate for the Santa Clara Unified School Board.  He also volunteers as City of Santa Clara Library Board Trustee. The Board of Library Trustees is primarily responsible for the establishment, acceptance and continued supervision of the public library program. Along with his wife Manisha who is also a proud teacher, they are parents of three children Abhishek, Aryan and Avni, all had been attending SCUSD schools. Most bureaucratic people consider the business of education ... hiring and awarding contracts rather than books and SATs. I am running to change this imbalance and give people of Santa Clara a revitalized School administration and a focus on children of Santa Clara in the heart of Silicon Valley.
