Top Speller in Family Quest

Kunal Sah, 13, is a great speller on a mission to win the upcoming Scripps National Spelling Bee later this month to bring attention to his family’s political asylum case. Ever since last year when his parents were sent back to India, Sah turned his frustration to training himself to win the nationals and grab President Bush’s attention and eventually bring back his parents to Utah and reunite the family. The Sah’s immigration lawyer concedes their plight is a complex case and doesn’t forsee a quick resolution. The New York Times gives a complete picture of the situation through words, photos and video.

Saturday’s Star Tribune picked up the New York Times story, minus the visuals.
