"One of the important things to understand about Harris County, and this whole region, is just how tied in the Indo-American community is," Emmett said.  "You know, I've given speech after speech after speech where I talked about the future really is going to be India.  I know China's big, but you just look at what's going on in India!"

Among the guests at the reception was Sudarshana Mona Parikh, who became president of the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Houston on January 1.

"Our mission, of course, is to facilitate trade and commerce between United States and India," Parikh said.  "As part of that process we certainly try to make sure that we enable small and medium businesses to succeed, and of course, the Indo-American business community, to succeed."
