‘Raj has always had the ability
to see the big picture’
Ihad a chance to sit down with Dr Raj Shah’s sister on a rainy Monday in New York.

Chaya Babu meets one of
Raj Shah’s steadiest supporters,
his sister Dr Ami Shah.
COUR TES Y: THE SHAHS
Ami and Raj Shah. She says, “Growing up Indian, everyone wants you to
do a 7-year medical program, but he had a big picture of making an
impact beyond living in a nice house and having nice cars.”
But for a little kid to not get angry, and to figure out a way
to look beyond that — I think next year he got the lead in
the school play.
He learned to work harder and be more creative.
I think if you have to work very hard as a young child that
probably serves you well as an adult to understand all perspectives.
That teacher example shows how things were for us
Indian kids in American schools in the ’80s and ’90s.
