NEW YORK: Four people of Indian-origin and another who has embraced India were the faces of diaspora's influence beyond science and technology in the U.S. when they shared the stage with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the VIPs at his Sunday community reception:

Hari Srinivasan, who was the emcee, is the anchor of the PBSNewsHour Weekend, a serious and in-depth TV news programme, it is very influential beyond the viewership numbers, among opinion-makers and politicians.

He also is a senior correspondent and director of digital partnerships. The Mumbai-born journalist has been an anchor for ABC's News Now, a reporter for Nightline, World News Tonight and CBS Evening News.

Nina Davaluri, the other emcee, recently completed her reign as Miss America, the first Indian-American to win the title. Though born in the U.S., she spent most of the first two-and-a-half years of her life in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh.

Nikki Haley is the governor of the South Carolina. Coming from a Sikh family, she was elected on a Republican ticket in 2010, becoming the youngest serving governor of a state in the U.S. at 42 years of age and also the first woman in the state. She was born in the state but her parents are immigrants from Amritsar, the city known for Golden Temple.
