Indians Abroad

Dear Children,

All through history, Indians have ventured out to different lands in search of new prospects. Today, the Indian Diaspora is widely spread. Presently, the Indian Diaspora is estimated to number over twenty million. The Diaspora covers practically every part of the world.

They have excelled in fields like the IT, medicine, venture capital, engineering, construction etc. to name a few.

The most important thing about the Indians living abroad is that they have retained their emotional, cultural and spiritual links with the country of their origin. This strikes a mutual chord in the hearts of people of India.
