BY ROHIT MALHOTRA
IN ATLANTA

Rohit Malhotra's grandfather was a hero of his, a teacher in a remote village in India, who instilled this ideal of what community is, in him as a small child. The polar opposites of 'community' and of 'government' (at least after this election) are what Rohit grew up loving. Listen as he speaks about the importance of local government and trust has in our communities.

Using guidelines established by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, a little-known function of the federal government, his students worked to name DuPage County features that lacked official names. He admittedly did not think this project through as thoroughly as needed, which resulted in this of a project gone awry—a project that caused a tremendous amount of work and stress for federal employees and local politicians.
