Indian Culture in New York City Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation The New York City district is residential to the biggest Indian-white populace among city territories by a substantial margin. In this paper I will be discussing Indians cultural backgrounds exploring their history in the US education religion and pop culture so that we might lay the foundation for understanding. Indian migrated in three waves in New York; approximately 3 million people are currently living in US. The first wave was called “Kapur”; this wave took place following the awake of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. The second wave was called “family cohort” and took place in 1980s. The last wave was called “the IT generation” and this wave started in 1990s (Bryce 2017). In 2015 12 500 Asians moved to the New York City according to statistical released by US Census in 2013 this number was (Okihiro 2014). Although restrictive caste system offered little business opportunity for Indians statistics suggest that Indians have thrived in New York City. The Indian-American community owes its good fortune to talent and hard work. A large portion of Indians live a vegetarian lifestyle in accordance with their Hindu religious beliefs having a heavily barbeque with only meat products. References Bryce R. (2017).
