We have decided to launch the Indian Diaspora umbrella portal, www.theindiandiaspora.com*.
Its main objectives are:
a) To create the first-ever Database of the Indian Diaspora and its associations/bodies; and,
b) To facilitate regular exchange of news and relevant information;
This Database, which will be accessible only to those who register themselves and have their entries verified, will allow members to network among themselves for professional, business and social reasons.*
We therefore seek your participation and involvement by registering through the SIGN UP section on our portal www.theindiandiaspora.com nd making it your own.
Our appeal to all Diaspora community: GET INVOLVED; BE ASSOCIATED; MAKE LINKAGES.
*THE INDIAN DIASPORA is a venture of the Society for Policy Studies (www.spsindia.in), an independent think tank.
