There are more than 30 million people of Indian origin living outside of India. Representing a diverse geographical spread and skill set, more and more members of the Indian diaspora are contributing to India’s growth story. The biggest stars of the diaspora are well-known: Sundar Pichai (Google), Indra Nooyi (PepsiCo) and Satya Nadella (Microsoft).

Can the Indian diaspora in Norway hold the key to a more engaged and innovative Norway? How does Norway, which is home to over 20 000 Indians, respond and engage to the new and modern India?
