Anand Kandaswamy

Anand Kandaswamy, a Rutgers College senior majoring in economics and political science, has achieved notoriety as the brother of the brilliant but stable Deepak. Born on January 10, 1980 in Bloomington, Indiana to great rejoicing and propitious signs th at had not been observed since Halley's Comet marked the date of Mark Twain's birth, he astonished his classmates with displays of brilliance in his formative years, while managing to avoid getting beaten up. After a childhood spent largely in the wilds o f suburban Illinois, at the age of 12 Anand brought the family to urban, urbane New Jersey. His current tastes in reading run from Great Expectations to Sideways Stories from Wayside School, and back again. In spite of his essay for this volume, he will be graduating in May 2002, and going on to law school this fall. Anand has a passion for history, and regaled us with his account of T. H. Huxley's triumph over Temujin, the Bishop of Oxford (or something of that sort).
