The 75 featured people celebrating Indo-US strategic relationship come from 13 Indian states and are now settled in 13 states in the USA. These people have lived their American dreams and struggled through cultural differences and language barriers to dominate the chosen fields. These are some pioneers for whom their success wasn’t their only aim but also the growth and development of India and the society they lived in; they have endeavoured to uplift weaker sections of the society, women empowerment, education, medical and health, AI and IT. Many of them have played pivotal roles in developing Indo-US bilateral relationships and strengthening their strategic alliance. And were they born with a silver spoon? No, they made each second count and earned everything they have. Read this coffee-table book and make history by walking the righteous path in life. Stay inspired!
