A Case Study of the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin

In the current age of the internet and knowledge networking it has become possible for communities to consolidate themselves through virtual networks cutting across geographical borders and reaching out seamlessly to their diasporic identities spread out globally. While the virtual networking of the communities strengthens the articulation of their identities in multi cultural settings, it also provides a channel for managing diversities in specific socio political situations. In this context this paper seeks to examine, in general, the case of the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) and its role in the consolidation and articulation of the Indian cultural identity through virtual networking in a multi cultural setting and its intervention in specific political contexts internationally to represent the collective voice of the community.
