Indian immigrants blaze a path of success in Germany
The Indian diaspora in the United States of America, Canada and United Kingdom has long been recognized and revered. Who hasn’t heard of Indian Movie maker Mira Nair, the celebrated Indian actor and politician, Kal Penn, the standup comedian – Hassan Minhaj, the industry tycoon – Indira Nooyi, or the Doctor turned author Atul Gawande. All have been stalwarts in their own right and have brought their own unique eastern spice into the Western blend. One would not be too hard pressed to find a number of success stories in the news about the Indian immigrant population in these countries. However UK, Canada and USA are not the only countries where immigrants from India have flourished and prospered. In other countries too, the Indian diaspora has held its own right and has achieved heights of success that make its home country proud.
In Germany, for instance, the Indian diaspora has had a small but strong presence making the immigration process to Germany more worthy. Unlike other countries where there are enough people of Indian origin to merit towns being named after them, Germany has seen fewer and more geographically scattered immigrants from India. However we can see a number of successful Indians who opted for immigration to Germany, who become successful in their own way and leave their mark on German society.
