The contribution of Indian-Americans has been phenomenal. Authorities felicitated over half-a-dozen eminent diaspora women from various parts of the country at the US Capitol for their remarkable accomplishment.

These eminent women were given awards at the 10th Annual Congressional International Women’s Day Gala organised jointly by American Multiethnic Coalition and Multiethnic Advisory Task Force at the US Capitol here on Wednesday.

Congressman Danny K Davis presented them awards.

Indian-American women who were felicitated on the occasion were producer artist Rashaana Shah; Indica News founder and journalist  Ritu Jha; physician Dr Kalai C Parthiban; social activists Madhu Rohatgi and Chandani Duvvuri; artist Indrani Davaluri; popular anchor and host Nilima Mehra and community activist Suhag Mehta.
