Indian Americans Living the American Dream

Hindustan Times had an Interesting article about how an Indian American will be honored as one of the top 100 Brokers in the US. It seems as though Indian Americans continue the success story by truly living the American dream. When the Obama memo on Hillary Clinton and the community had come out it had raised some interesting questions, issues and concerns about what Indian Americans stand for. The memo portrayed the community as not really fitting values of America. I think this article and accomplishment continues to depict how we represent what America has always been.
Indian Americans believe in STRONG family values, moral values, and are thirsty for learning, education and self betterment. These are values that America used to operate on and are the basic principles of what has made the United States the great success it has become. This man Raj Sharma received the highest honor in his respective field and day in and day out this can be seen in any areas Indian Americans are venturing it. Although Senator Obama has long since apologized for the mishap the memo still shows what many Americans may believe to be our community. We need to continue to show grass roots mobilization to ensure these depictions or stereo types of the community are driven away.

The only way we can do this is by GETTING INVOLVED in the political process!
Post your thoughts....

Read the article, its amazing to see the success Indian-Americans have had in all fields in the last 30 years.

However, this success can become useless unless we have a voice in the country. While Indian-Americans make up less than 1% of the total US population, many are in very influential positions that impact academics, business, healthcare, and law. This site encourages our new generation to voice our opinion and have a say.

Good job with this site, I'm looking forward to the future discussions it will promote!

I think the community needs to remember the Obama mishap. It was a pivotal point for Indian Americans and this election, I feel like the only reason our community has received any attention from the Obama camp is because of that Memo situation. The senator still has not met with enough leaders from the community and as great as his rallys are we truly need to see him meeting with community leaders to understand our role with in his future administration!
