Default Any Indians in the villages?

Hi folks! I’m Indian. I’ve lived in the Midwest for close to 30 years now. Looking to retire and move to TV. Just out of curiosity, are there many (any) Indians in TV?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

Krishna

There is a new group that started up and just had what looked to be a great first gathering with Indian food, dance, music. I would have to research what the name is but it looked to be well attended. The Villages has a strong Caucasian leaning but there is multi culturalism here, not like a major city though.

The club will meet on the first Thursday of the month at Pimlico Recreation Center. For membership and other information, contact Marwah at (412) 720-8048.
There is this from the rival site to Talk of the Villages with respect to news of the Villages. They had 200 people at their recent first meeting. From the other news site--

Wow! Interesting comments at the end of that article. Hopefully those are not representative of the majority of the villagers!

Please ignore those that reply with racist tone. The politics and racism that one can encounter here can smell of hatred. There are many loving, happy, accepting people. I was disappointed to miss their inaugural event, I had not seen it advertised. I had a close working relationship with the Indo Canadian community when I lived in British Columbia. Hope you will move here. Please focus on the people who have good attitude. If I did not do that I would have to move.

We do celebrate Diwali. But living in America, we celebrate Diwali during thanksgiving. That way all the family and kids come home for the long weekend. And we invite our neighbors and friends for a huge Indian meal at Thanksgiving.

There are many physicians in this area with East Indian heritage. They may not LIVE in The Villages, but live nearby. Our physician, Dr. Trenny Gulati is of East Indian Heritage.
