    As we get ready to say good-bye to 2019, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members, readers and well-wishers for your continued support to IAGB. In the last month, we had the opportunity to welcome the Indian Ambassador to US, Hon’ble Mr. Harsh Vardhan Shringla along with Hon’ble Consulate General Mr. Sandeep Chakravorty. At this gathering IAGB brought together representatives from multiple regional organizations. Partnering and collaborating with a wide diaspora of Indian Americans, we will make a bigger impact on the governance at local, state and federal level by highlighting issues and areas of concern to Indian Americans.

    The last hurrah for the outgoing 2017-2019 IAGB Executive Committee (EC) team was a better than expected success of India Day celebrations. The crowds, the programs, the vendors, the food, the weather, everything came together in a perfect symphony creating a festive atmosphere. There were many high energy performances including a flash mob dance on patriotic songs with participants ranging from ages 80 to young toddlers and open dance during the DJ hour at the conclusion of the event.
