FINALLY, i AM A PART OF AN INDIAN GROUP
In Dallas, Texas, my hometown for 37 years, I was deeply involved with many associations including; President of the Coyote Ridge Home Owners Association, President of North Texas Cricket Association, President of a Condominium Association, Commissioner at the City of Carrollton, Board member of Memnosyne Foundation, Dallas Peace Center, Home Builders Association, and a life member in many organizations including India Association of North Texas, and International Hindi Samiti.
When I moved to DC – I joined the boards of a few associations but have remained focused on the development and establishment of the Center for Pluralism. However, I was seriously looking to join an association of Indians. Finally, I found NCAIA to be the right place for me. It represents the diversity of India and the pluralistic ethos of the members, i.e., inclusive attitude.
Here is a video that exemplifies India’s pluralistic ethos – https://www.facebook.com/MikeGhouse/videos/1172186752969923/?t=9
The joy we feel watching this video is infectious. It’s human nature to respect the otherness of the other, and when do that, it releases us from tensions and brings joy. This video does that, and as Indians we have a duty to preserve this pluralistic ethos of India.

I am happy to be a part of NCAIA, and I hope to do my share of work towards its success in bringing the community together.
I invite fellow Indian-Americans to join the organization. We have a lot of things planned, including a meet and greet event on December 14 at 5:30 PM in Silver Spring, MD. If interested, please send an email to MikeGhouseforIndia@gmail.com
