Ambassador's appeal to the Indian-American community

Washington, DC
September 4, 2005 

In response to a question by a press correspondent on the role of the Indian-American community in the wake of the Katrina tragedy, Ambassador Ronen Sen said " I appeal to all my fellow Indian Citizens in the U.S to contribute generously to the American Red Cross and other U.S. organizations which are  in the forefront of the rescue and relief operations. I am also confident that the Indian-American community will actively assist their fellow American citizens by volunteering their services, particularly as doctors and specialists and by making large financial contributions. America has been good to the Indian community and this critical moment of trial and tribulation offers both  a challenge and an opportunity for all people of Indian origin to rise to the occasion when this great and good country needs them. In doing so, they will also honor the traditions of their country of origin."
