This is a screenshot of the Comedy Central's website page for "The Colbert Report" on Wednesday, June 18. You'll see two South Asian names on the screen - Dr. Uma Mysorekar on the blue promo line above and Neal Katyal below. Turns out Colbert has had three desi guests in the last three weeks (Salman Rushdie appeared on June 4). We've embedded all three videos below. Post your comments, please.
