When Indian Americans succeed professionally here, it is like they are succeeding across the world, says Chicago-based writer, commentator, and journalist Mayank Chhaya.

“America remains a major draw as a land of opportunity for the rest of the world. Its glamor, significantly fueled by Hollywood, gives it a shine that no other country can rival yet. All that brightness lights up any success, including by Indian Americans, beyond the normal celebration,” Chhaya tells Indian Star in an email interview.
