Indian Diaspora in United State of America (USA) is the largest after Mexicans and Chinese. They have many issues and face challenges living away from their homeland. They also have different kinds of achievements and stress consisting of finding a job, racial discrimination, cultural identity crisis, and immigration problems. This paper is an exploratory attempt to discuss some of these issues and take stock of where they have reached. It is an attempt to study the Indians living in USA in a distinct time period like those who have been situated from 0 to 5 years, 5 to 10 years and those who are in USA for more than 10 years. Why did they go from India? What is their present position and what are their perceptions of the future? It also considers the perceptions of male and female Diaspora. To study the Indian Diaspora in USA a convenient sampling method was used. It is based on interviews and questionnaire comprising of details of their life in USA, their perceptions, stresses and positive and negative aspects of living in a foreign country. It attempts to find out whether the Diaspora is attached emotionally to their home country and family and whether they plan to return to India. This study was undertaken by interviewing 70 people both male and female between the age of 25 and 50 years.
