Much like The Kennedy’s, the name Gandhi is associated with regal and and majestic overtones; synonymous with riveting and galvanizing global and political reverberations. Infact, both families’ members are almost expected, like the salmon and the birds, destined to follow, as if drawn by a magnet, a path, predetermined and deeply immersed in world political dynamics. Laughing, as I, erroneously and presumptuously deduced that he was Varun Gandi, said, ‘Ha ha, No I am not related to them’. Sam Gandhi, on a night, in which Varun Gandhi, probably the next Indian Prime Minister, and the grand-son of Indira Gandhi, the late Indian female Prime Minister, who was assassinated a few years ago, along with many other global and local dignitaries, and the media, co-hosted along with Jen Svejda, an event, April 28, 2012, celebrating The Indian New year, and also, honoring The Men and Women In Uniform, in Los Angeles, C.A. This event was a success, as it raised funds for the families that have lost members of the sheriffs department  that died during the line of duty.

Many, though his brilliance wasn’t diminished, unable to see the forest for the trees, presumed erroneously, like myself, since Sam is of Indian descent, that he must be a member of the famous political Gandhi regime. Sam’s brilliance in the realty and finance realm is beyond compare. His financial abilities are multi-faceted, and he and Jen Svejda, emceed this block buster extravaganza, which was facilitated by Maria Amor, The CEO and founder of the nonprofits , Exotifit for Humanity and We Care for the World, to perfection. And ladies Sam Gandhi is not married.

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
