Dinesh D'Souza Is Winning - NationalJournal.com: "Certainly, D'Souza has always had a hearty streak of American boosterism—derived, he says, from his own immigrant's story. He was born in Bombay to a middle-class Catholic family that hailed from the former Portuguese colony of Goa.

He quickly became disillusioned by the tendency of his fellow classmates to criticize the U.S. and romanticize South Asia. "I said, 'What do you find particularly liberating about India?' " he asked The Washington Post in 1991. "'Is it the caste system? Is it dowry? Is it arranged marriage?'
