Nepali running for US Congress

Darshan Rauniyar, a Nepali-American, is running as a Democratic candidate for the 2012 election in Washington State’s first Congressional district. He is probably the first Nepali contesting for the US Congress.

Mr. Rauniyar grew up in Kathmandu, Nepal and came to the United States about 20 years ago as an engineering student at Oregon State University. “As an international student, life was very hard when I came to this country”, says Darshan who is very proud to call himself a living example of the American Dream.
