According to M.R. Rangaswami, Indiaspora Founder, it is time to set and Indian American agenda. “Last month, I urged Indian Americans to take our place on the national stage as the country inaugurates President Obama to his second term as President,” says Rangaswami. “The response? Overwhelming! More than 1,000 people will attend the first-ever Indiaspora Inaugural Ball on January 19 to celebrate the combined strength and synergy of our two nations.”
Indiaspora, founded by community leaders to unite Indian Americans, announced the Indiaspora 2013 Inaugural Ball to honor President Obama’s second term as President of the United States. Indian Americans and well-wishers from around the globe will celebrate the community’s success and the re-election of President Obama at a formal cross-cultural gala on January 19, 2013 at the Mandarin Oriental Washington, D.C.
As Indian Americans play a larger role in national politics, they are enjoying:
A big “thank you” from President Obama – A new study shows 75 percent of Indian Americans in swing states supported the president’s re-election.
A presence in national politics and more – Californian Dr. Ami Bera was elected to the House of Representatives, the third Indian American to be elected to Congress. And from across the country 16 others were able to join the ranks of elected public servants.
A bigger role in campaign fundraising – Experts say Indian Americans are raising more money than ever for candidates on both sides of the aisle in local, state-wide and national races.
With the highest median income and educational attainment amongst all Asian Americans according to a recent Pew Center study, the community’s political prominence now matches that of Indian Americans in other disciplines.
