With a resounding victory in the Republican Primary and later the withdrawal of the Democratic opponent from election from District 66, Dr Sabi Kumar of Springfield, was assured of a seat in Tennessee State House of Representatives weeks ago, reports's George Joseph.

Once the election is over, Representative Sabi 'Doc' Kumar looks forward to serving in the Tennessee Legislature. He is the first Indian to become a member of the House in Tennessee when the legislative session begins in 2015.

Kumar, a surgeon, has served in Springfield for 37 years. "It has been a remarkable journey. Considering that I came to this community as an adult immigrant, the mere fact that I could run for public office is a reward in itself. But, to win the election is indeed an honor. I am fortunate to live in a wonderful community. It is truly a great country that we live in," he said.
