Take pride in Indian-Americans achievements: Rao
Washington: India takes pride in the achievements of the three million-strong Indian-American community that has truly come of age, New Delhi`s top diplomat
here Nirupama Rao has said.
She stated this at an embassy event hosted by her on the `role and contribution of India-Americans to the ongoing consolidation of India-US relations`.
"To say that the Indian American community has truly come of age is no exaggeration," she said.
The event included a presentation on Homespun - an initiative of the Asian Pacific American Programme of the Smithsonian Institution to put together an exhibition,
chronicling the story of immigrants from India and their descendants in America.
Rao described "HomeSpun" as a celebration of the accomplishments and success of the Indian-origin community in the US.
The Indian Ambassador expressed confidence it would be an effective public demonstration of the potential and capabilities of Indian Americans in contributing to the American society and economy and also to the India-US partnership.
Among others present at the event were Richard Kurin, Undersecretary for History, Ar, and Culture at the Smithsonian Institution; Konrad Ng, Director of Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Programme, and HomeSpun`s curator Pawan Dhingra.
