Indian American Who 'Invented Email' Joins The 2024 US Presidential Race

Indian-American scientist and entrepreneur, Shiva Ayyadurai, has announced his independent candidacy for the 2024 US presidential election. Ayyadurai, a Mumbai-born 59-year-old, aims to serve America beyond the traditional “Left” and “Right” political spectrum.

Ayyadurai left India in 1970, escaping the caste system where he and his family were considered ‘Untouchables’ and ‘Deplorables’. He moved to Paterson, New Jersey, with his parents to live the American dream.

He is now the fourth Indian-American to bid for the US presidency, following Indian-American aerospace engineer Hirsh Vardhan Singh, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.

A Fulbright Scholar with four degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Ayyadurai has started seven hi-tech companies, including EchoMail, CytoSolve, and Systems Health. He is said to have “invented email” at the age of 14. Currently, he serves as the Founder and CEO of CytoSolve, Inc, which is working on discovering cures for major diseases, from pancreatic cancer to Alzheimer’s.
