Satwant Singh Kaleka will be remembered by his son as a man who “lived his life with the principles he knew and he was taught at a young age,” and as a patriot who had “lived the American dream.” In this interview with the Kaleka family, Anderson sits down with the temple president’s wife, Satpal, and his son, Amardeep.
Arriving as an immigrant to the U.S. in 1982 with no more than a couple hundred dollars in his pocket, Amardeep recalls how his father would work 18-hour days at a gas station in order to provide for his family. He believes his father set an excellent example for others. “If you do the hard work, if you live by truth and honesty…it’s going to lead to a good life. He has beautiful children, he has beautiful grandchildren, he has a great wife that has stood by him through thick and thin. His community loves him. Hundreds of people will show up at his funeral.”
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
