In the upcoming US Senate elections (like Rajya Sabha – there are only 100 total seats, 2 per state), upstart and challenger Shiva Ayyadurai- of Indian origin without any doubt and the real Indian is fighting against incumbent senator Elizabeth Warren. Ms. Warren has claimed to be of American Indian decent and many are questioning this. Mr. Ayyadurai’s fighting moto is “Only a REAL INDIAN Can Defeat the Fake Indian.” Mr. Ayyadurai as has President Trump called Ms. Warren and reportedly many other American Indians have called her the fake Indian and an opportunist to exploit special benefits given to American Indians (like SC/ST get in India).
While Indians don’t know either candidate, most would support Shiva the real Indian. Could we have imagined that being an Indian would be used to win a very difficult election in USA or any other country?

Both are successful people and have come up the hard way and continue to work very hard. President Trump has never been in government, while PM Modi has been a social worker, an an elected representative, a Chief Minister (arguably one of the most successful) and now the prime minister – so in public life most times. Both have earned a solid 30+ million plus Twitter followers who adore their respective leaders. Trump has been hasty, too quick to express his opinion, some politically incorrect, on Twitter on almost anything and anyone. PM Modi tweets are about wishes to one and all, policy and achievements. PM is always found sending wishes and greetings to one and all including his opponents. PM is much less visible, and when he is it is about substance. Both are known to get annoyed or possibly angry, but President Trump’s reaction is public and for to see, while PM Modi is more restrained at best, and mostly not even visible. Trump has moved faster – at least one area PM Modi can copy?
