"Approximately 200,000 Indian students currently enrich US university campuses as they pursue higher education opportunities. The Indian American diaspora numbers an estimated four million people, and roughly one-third of all immigrant-founded start-ups in the United States have Indian founders," it stated, while adding that the US Mission in India will continue 75th Anniversary celebrations with a range of events across the country throughout the year.

On Thursday, the US Mission in India, comprising the Embassy in New Delhi and Consulates General in Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, and Hyderabad, released a star-studded video message celebrating 75 years of US-India relations.

Chargé d’Affaires Patricia Lacina stated: “At the core of the US-India partnership are the countless personal friendships formed over the years between individual Americans and Indians as they study, work, live, and learn together. The contributors to this video stand at the pinnacle of their respective fields of endeavor, highlighting the many ways that these people-to-people connections have helped both our countries thrive.”
