Rangaswamy draws upon the latest census data and extensive fieldwork complemented by her own substantial surveys and interviews. She sets her study firmly within the international context of global emigration from India, which is essential for anyone seeking to understand the Indian experience in the world today. In many ways the anticipation and excitement of that experience is captured in the very word Namaste, the traditional greeting in India. No longer is it solely an Indian word; it is part of the global vocabulary.
