Silicon Raj exhibitSilicon Raj: Making a Difference to America's Future

Silicon Raj is a photo documentary project in progress. Its goals are, first, to honor Indians' contributions to America in job creation, entrepreneurial leadership, and prosperity in an array of fields and industries, and second, to call for the acknowledgement of their contributions and, at once, embracing their presence and the promise of continued integration. Ultimately, Silicon Raj is the photographer's "effort to provide the Indian community with a visual voice, so others will respect their ambitions, culture, music, and other social values, and to document the day to day life of a proud community."
