Every diaspora is connected by the proverbial umbilical cord with its motherland. So too is the Indian Diaspora that has, in the 21st century, intensified its engagements with India. Spread over a 100 nations globally, and connecting regularly with its roots in one form or another, the Indian Diaspora, 28 million strong, is largely responsible for India’s growing clout in the world scene. In many ways, the men and women of the Indian diaspora are unofficial ambassadors of India, for what they showcase becomes a cornerstone for opinion building on India. This book talks about how the diaspora has fared, and the key issues it has raised, through the eyes of one of the most respected diaspora organizations in the world—the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO). The book also profiles some leading GOPIO members, and the chapters that the organization has established worldwide. Also featured are some Little Indias across the world
