Indian Ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu has an advice for the Indian diaspora youth in the United States: Connect to your roots and culture by visiting historic and learn about Indian success stories in sectors like IT, reported americanbazaaronline.com.

The Ambassador gave his advice during a recent meeting with members of the World United Guru Nanak Foundation (WUGNF) USA. The foundation members had met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on the occasion of Sadbhavna Diwas and celebration of Guru Teg Bahadur’s 400th birth centenary.

The delegation members expressed their deep appreciation for the phenomenal work being done by Sandhu to promote US-India relations and said he made all Sikhs proud and represented what every Indian could achieve through their hard work and competence.

Since many people who come from Punjab have difficulty filling up the forms and understanding the language and other basic things required in the new country, Sandhu suggested that Gurdawaras could work in coordination with the embassy to provide help in consular services like filling up the application forms and understanding the rules, regulations and procedures

Sandhu said he was looking to the India Diaspora youth to connect to their roots and culture and suggested they visit historic and religious places like the Golden Temple. He also said they should also visit such places as Hyderabad and Bangalore, where they could learn about the Indian success stories in the IT sector. The embassy, he said would provide all possible support for their travel and safe stay in India. The journey would open their eyes.

Since many people who come from Punjab have difficulty filling up the forms and understanding the language and other basic things required in the new country, Sandhu suggested that Gurdawaras could work in coordination with the embassy to provide help in consular services like filling up the application forms and understanding the rules, regulations and procedures. Such a service in the true spirit of Sikh tradition would be of great help for diaspora. Gurdawaras could have computers and office space to help all, especially the new immigrants, while they partake in seva, (service) and langar (community meals).

WUGNF General Secretary Dr Surinder Singh promised to help the Indian diaspora.
