With 100,000 Indian American doctors; over 20,000 Indian American hoteliers, and one in three tech startups having an Indian American founder, sky is the only limit for the enterprising community, says veteran editor and foreign policy analyst, Tarun Basu.

His recent evocative collection titled, ‘Kamala Harris and the Rise of Indian Americans’, captures the rise of the Indians in the US across domains by exceptional achievers like Shashi Tharoor, a former UN public servant-turned Indian politician, and top diplomats like TP Sreenivasan and Arun K Singh.

Highlighting the achievements of Indians in America, Basu, who was the founder-editor of news agency IANS, told Indian Star that the community’s success serves as a ‘model’ for other nations.
