A recent report by the Foundation for India and Indian Diaspora Studies revealed that two in five Indian Americans are concerned about financial stability.
The foundation held an event discussing the impact of COVID-19 on the Indian American community and its response.
The event featured nearly a dozen panelists, including Bharat Barai, director of the Oncology Institute; Suresh Reddy, president AAPI; Kalpesh Joshi, Midwest region director of AAHOA; Sampath Shivangi, chairman of AAPI; Navneet Chugh, attorney and CPA; Venk Shukla, former TiE Global chairman; Prof. Sree Sreenath, president of Sewa USA; Vishal Khera, entrepreneur in Virginia; Mandar Pattekar, radiologist and HSS Service coordinator; and Amruta Houde, Hindu Yuva president.
Additionally, India’s Ambassador Taranjit Singh Sandhu delivered the inaugural speech, and Padma Bhushan Prof. Ved Nanda gave his concluding remarks.
The study found that two in five Indian Americans are worried about their long-term financial stability due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but almost all are changing their lifestyle.
