Asian Pacific American Heritage Month goes way beyond the face of China, Japan and other East Asian Countries.  It also touches on the life stories of thousands of South Asians from Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India.  

And even with those five countries of origins, their religious beliefs, traditions, ethnicities and cultures are as diverse as they come.

Today we'll focus on India and the significant contributions of the Indian American community. We will visit the other South Asian American cultures during future shows.  But today let's look at the contributions, opportunities and challenges facing nearly 3 million Indian Americans including Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and CNN Global Correspondent Fareed Zakaria.  

Our guest today is Upendra Mishra, publisher of India New England and former bureau chief and division editor of United Press International.
