Indian Americans have welcomed business conglomerate Jindal Group's one million US dollar donation to an NRI community centre in Houston saying that the gesture could initiate a new trend of economic synergy in the country.

The philanthropic gesture, first of its kind from a major Indian business house, is believed by many NRIs to kickstart a new era of community service in the United States.

"The donation... May rope in more business houses to get engaged in such services across", India House board president and a key player behind the President George W Bush's India trip, Durga Agarwal said.

The $20 million community centre promoted Indian culture besides providing social, health care and referral services for everyone - regardless of their ethnicity.
