    When Swadesh Chatterjee arrived in the United States with his wife Manjusri and their baby daughter, he had just $35 in his pocket. A decade and a half later, he was a successful North Carolina businessman who had helmed a company, and Manjusri had a thriving practice as a psychiatrist. His children were well on their way to achieving the American Dream. Not satisfied with simply being an immigrant success story, Chatterjee decided it was time to give back to his adopted land, as well as to the motherland he had left behind. He took a leadership role in the burgeoning movement of Indian Americans keen to see a reconciliation between the United States and India after decades of Cold War misunderstandings and resentments. His book, Building Bridges: How Indian Americans Brought the U.S. and India Closer Together, tells that story.
