It's not "Bobby Jindal"? It is down in the text. Someone else said "Jindel" at the beginning, I guess.

He didn't change it, he is legally Piyush and that is what appeared on the ballot where he clobbered everyone else.

He says it's because he loved the Brady Bunch when he was a kid.

I have lots of customers who are Indian. They all adopt American names when they come here.

Harshad = Harry
Sharadkumar = Sonny
Bharakubhai = Andy


Those are a few. Unlike the prophet, who went by an American name, then changed to Barrack.
