Our Voice And Yours

Dear Reader:

Under new guideline, Indians who have become naturalized citizens of the U.S. must surrender their Indian passports and obtain a “surrender certificate” for a fee of $175 before receiving a new visa to travel to India. Failure to provide the surrender certificate would mean the denial of an Indian travel visa.

A surrender certificate can be obtained by taking an Indian passport to the local consulate, where it will be cancelled and returned to the holder. The passport holder must also fill out and sign a “declaration of renunciation of citizenship of India.” Surrender certificates must be obtained in person and cannot be mailed or faxed to the local consulate.

For further information, visit any of the Indian Consulate/Embassy websites.

Thought For The Day

Those who grumble at the little thing that has fallen to their lot to do will grumble at everything. Always grumbling, they will lead a miserable life, and everything will be a failure. But those who do their duties as they go, putting their shoulders to the wheel, will see the light, and higher duties will fall to their share. - Swami Vivekananda.

MITHAS Fundraiser At Chinmaya Delights Music Lovers

A year ago the chairperson of the MITHAS' board, Geetha Krishnamurthy asked the then newly elected board member and local artist/teacher, Durga Krishnan if it would be possible for her to put together a fund raiser program for MITHAS. The concert on May 16, 2010 at the Chinmaya Mission was born out of that request and delighted the audience immensely.
