Today, the non-resident Indian community is a successful, bustling and spectacular assortment of people settled in all corners of the earth, yet belonging to India and with a longing for their beloved country.
They are doctors, technocrats, political and social activists, entrepreneurs, scientists, educators etc; and no matter what they are, they are perpetuating the success of India with their own achievements.
