Dr. Thampy was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya. He is of Indian ancestry. His family originally lived in the southern Indian state of Kerala, and have well established Christian and orthodox Hindu traditions. Under the British colonial rule in Kenya he became acutely aware of the depredations of an apartheid society but also enjoyed the benefits of a multicultural environment. On completing junior college in the first multi racial school in Kenya, he enrolled in the Catholic University of Navarra for medical training. Prior to starting medical school he worked for a few months in the Kenya Government Forensic laboratory analyzing such esoteric matters as body fluids, counterfeit currency and illegal drugs.
In medical school he was instrumental in setting up the Asian Students Association to promote understanding of Eastern culture, and worked very closely with the Latin American and African student bodies. He continued this interest in promoting interest in minority affairs and Third World issues after immigrating to the United States in 1970. Primarily he has been an activist in the rights of immigrant professionals.
