The who's who of the successful Indo American community of Silicon Valley came together at a fund raising dinner recently for Governor Arnold Schwarznegger's reelection campaign.
The Gubernatorial elections for California in which Governor Schwarzenegger is locking horns with Democratic candidate Phil Angelide are scheduled for November 7 this year.
Complementing the 'hard working' Indian community, Schwarznegger hinted of taking a trade delegation of 60 to 100 business leaders to India in 2007, if reelected.
"We have opened a business portal to facilitate information exchange. I will see how California can increase trade with India and how India can manufacture more for California. We must find where we can share technologies," the former Hollywood hero told the South Asian media.
He also mentioned the possibility of collaboration in show business in light of India's staggering statistics of churning out 700 movies an year.
Amongst others, the attendee list at the house of Tie Silicon Valley President Raj Jaswa, included Kanwal and Ann Rekhi, Sanjay and Suniti Subhedar, the Kumar Malavalli family, Promod and Dorcas Haque, Naren and Vinita Gupta, Arjun Gupta, and Romesh and Kathleen Wadhwani.
