  • Sad situation. Praying for Sadgati. Why seek this outcome? Indian community ought to have a robust social network center that gives individual venues for peace, meditation, financial, emotional support system, fully free of cost. Other ethnic groups have their support system. One has Jewish Defense League and CAIR. Mostly Indian groups are for some kind of PAC set up for supporting so-so candidate(s) and not one of those emotional/financial support system.

  • Sad to hear the news. I wonder how was he able to get a gun. Police should investigate if someone else murdered them and left the gun there to show suicide.

    • In united states it is easy to buy a gun as you buy a knife in other countries.

  • Its very unfortnate that majority of folks from India have not kept with the strong traditional values of our ancestors. From joint family to very segregated living to a point that folks dont even know their neighbour accross the hallway even in an apartment building. I have personally seen how difficult it can get if a family get hit by a catastrophe and other around them, even knowing of the dilemma family is going through is so hesitant to reach out..and one of the reason being not wanting them to get involved with ‘the’ situation. Lack of empathy is definately the key reason, but its was always intertwined in Indian culture ..not so any more unfortunately.
