Leo Varadkar : Politician of Indian descent
People of Indian descent have succeeded in different countries in different fields. It feels special when you hear that a person of Indian descent is making a positive contribution overseas. One such person is Leo Varadkar, an Indian descent who entered politics in another country and rose to fame
Leo is born to an Irish mother and Indian father, and he made a foray into politics when he was 22. Within five years, he was elected to the Irish Parliament. Today, at 38, he could potentially be the next Ireland Prime Minister. His father is Mumbai-born Maharashtrian but had had moved from India to England as a doctor in the 1960s after which he met Miriam (Leo’s Mother).
He doesn’t want to be tagged as a ‘gay prime minister’ and fairly so, he shouldn’t be.
