Indian community has never been more globally integrated than in the recent times. The announcement on H-1B visa norms by the Trump administration, dissolution of parliament and announcement of elections in the United Kingdom, new visa curbs in Australia and New Zealand, violence in Middle East countries and slow-down of African economy has directly affected India and Indians as never before. In just two decades, Indians have integrated themselves with the global community and the relationship is just indispensable. So any event of consequence anywhere in the world has a direct bearing on us Indians.
