Leaders from the 3-million-strong Indian American community, compatriots from India and American well-wishers will celebrate the combined achievements of the two nations and cultures," organisers of this 2013 Inaugural Ball have announced.

The party, which has been named 'Indiaspora Ball' will be attended by members of the Indian American community, along with senators, Congressmen and policymakers. The ball is jointly organized by Tata Consultancy Services, US India Business Council and North American South Asian Bar Association.
