The Indian-Americans are the richest among all other communities in America. According to the data, the annual income of Indian-Americans is around $100,547 whereas the Pakistani-Americans earn around $63,000 and Bangladeshi-Americans get around $51,000.

The growth of the Indian-Americans is significant and rapid, and they established their position in America. From politics to judiciary, Indians are now respected everywhere. In 2010, the annual family income of the Indian-American was around $86,135, much lower than that of the whites or native born Americans ($90,174).

The census report also revealed that Jewish community came closer to the Indian-Americans with an annual family income of around $100,000. According to the US religious landscape study published by Pew Forum, the Jews stood first in America in perspective of business, education and all other areas. 46% of Jews crossed the billion dollar margin compared to 43% Hindu and 27% Christian.

According to a recent data released by US senate, it said that Indian-Americans will be a major power in America within 20 years and they will control the American society at large.

    This is no doubt a proud moment but it has a hidden reason to worry,THE last LINE: “The US senate also put a deep concern on the rise of the Indian-Americans and other communities and asked the government to make a strict law on Visa.”
    We cannot deny that this may lead to racial bias under tones as Jealousy is a basic human emotion

    It is also true that most Indian-Americans are a disapora from minority communities Constitutionally and politically persecuted in India. So, this should be a natural alliance. (The British label “Hindu” now denotes a people governed by Periyarism, Ambedkarism, High Courtism and Supreme Courtism. We should use the term “Dharmic denoting people of the Law as opposed to “Din- e-Kitabi” people of the Book)

Goa, the ultimate party capital of India is a haven for beach lovers. The destination has a certain magnetic pull that makes it populated with travellers all year around. With the onset of monsoon, Goa gets ready to celebrate its rain festival called ‘Sao Jao’ dedicated to St John the Baptist. Wondering what ‘Sao Jao Festival’ is? Okay. Remember the ‘Matargashti’ song from Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Tamasha’? Sao Jao is something similar to that with gorgeously dressed people dancing and having fun. The festival is power packed with music, food, dance, fun and fenny. The annual festival is celebrated on June 24th.

Celebrated by the Christian community, Sao Jao Festival is dedicated to St John the Baptist, who baptised Lord Jesus in the river of Jordan. As a symbol of baptism and cleaning, people take a dip in water bodies. Traditionally, a group of people travel all over and take a dive inside wells, ponds, and pools, and then claim a reward of jackfruit and pineapple. In addition, there are various activities planned across the state. Goans consume plenty of fruits during the festival. There is a tradition, wherein families that have newly-married couples exchange foods and gifts with their in-laws.
