Spread over a wide canvas, but focused entirely on the Indian diaspora, Mulloo attempts a diasporic perspective by using the interdisciplinary tools of history, economics, politics and sociology to narrate the story of overseas Indians. Secondly, he makes an important departure by taking a self-confident, Indo-centric view of a resurgent India-but from a self-critical, realistic and optimistic perspective. Thirdly, Mulloo's analysis of NRIs and PIOs provides the intellectual framework for a deeper, critical understanding of the Indian diaspora-that global family of 22 million in over 125 countries. Finally, he positions the Indian diaspora, with its estimated combined income of $ 160 billion, as a huge asset in the creation of a global network and the building of economic bridges to assist both India and the host countries.
