Never understood why so many people - mostly from the Left - hate the NRIs. NRIs are achievers, ambassadors of India; they work hard, excel in what they do; and they love India.

NRIs sent $ 80 billion to India last year in remittances - 3% of our GDP.

STOP hating the NRIs.
Total American exports to India (2018): $ 35 billion.

Total American NRI remittances to India (2018): $ 21 billion.
This tweet - that made NO distinction between NRIs - has irked those who want to segregate the NRIs into good and bad - bad being those who love Modi.

I repeat: As a resident Indian, I admire ALL NRIs, wherever they may be settled - the West or the Gulf.
There are currently more than 30 million overseas Indians, settled in as many as 206 countries (2018 data). The largest number is in the USA - 4.5 million. The smallest in Micronesia - 1.

They may love or loathe Modi but I admire each one of them, for their grit & determination.
