According to the PTI reports, last time, the inaugural presidential ball was held in January 2013. Next year in 2017, there will be other things apart from inaugural ball, which will showcase the ascendancy and prominence of Indian-origin in the US, like yoga, Bollywood, and the Indian Cuisine.
Rangaswami hopes that the general elections would also result in the greater representation of the Indian Americans in the US Congress.
California’s Attorney General Kamala Harris holds a fair chance of becoming the first Indian-American to be elected as a US Senator.
