As part of its Research Seminar Series, Ahmedabad University organized a talk "The Other One Percent: The Selection and Diversity of Indians in America” by Professor Sanjoy Chakravorty of Temple University. The theme of the discussion centered on the composition of the Indians in the US and how the Indian community is no longer a small, easily defined community. The title of the talk was the same as the title of the collaborative book by Prof. Sanjoy Chakravorty, Prof. Devesh Kapur and Prof. Nirvikar Singh.
