The group publishes five periodicals - "News India Times," a national weekly newspaper; "Desi Talk in New York," a weekly newspaper serving the New York-New Jersey- Connecticut region; and "Desi Talk in Chicago," a weekly newspaper serving the Greater Chicago area and the Midwestern states; and "The Indian American," a national bimonthly feature magazine, and the Gujarat Times, a Gujrarati language weekly. The combined circulation and readership of these publications make the media group the most influential in the ethnic Indian market.
Advocacy As a leading advocate for India with the U.S. Congress and government for the last two decades, Dr. Parikh has been responsible for bringing a number of American political leaders to serve the cause of U.S.-India relations. He was, for instance, personally responsible for Congressman Elliot Engel (D-N.Y.), Rush Holt (D-N.J.) and Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) joining the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans. In recognition of his efforts during the 1990s, he was invited to join the delegation that accompanied President William Jefferson Clinton during his historic visit to India in March 2000. As a (founding) member of the Indian American Republican Council (IARC) and a number of other organizations lobbying Congress, Dr. Parikh has worked tirelessly for the fruition of the U.S.-India nuclear deal. Dr. Parikh used his personal relationship with a number of American politicians - including New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine and the state's former governor Christine Todd Whitman, Senator Charles Schumer of New York, Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Congressmen Benjamin Gilman, Frank Pallone and Gary Ackerman - to rally political support for the nuclear deal and foster a strategic partnership with India.
Recognizing his efforts as part of the core group that lobbied for the nuclear deal, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh personally acknowledged Dr. Parikh's contributions during his visit to the U.S. last year.
Dr. Parikh also has been a cultural ambassador of India in the United States. To this end, he has often been a Grand Sponsor of India's Independence Day celebrations that have been held in New York City for the past 25 years. He also advanced the cause of the Indian-American community through his leadership of organizations like the Federation of Indian Associations (FIA), Indian American Forum for Political Education (IAFPE), where he was instrumental in starting a Congressional Internship Program for second-generation Indian Americans to work in the U.S. Congress.
Philanthropy Dr. Parikh is a patron of several philanthropic organizations, including the American India Foundation, and has contributed generously to select causes in India and the United States, including to the rehabilitation of the Gujarat earthquake and Tamil Nadu tsunami victims. Dr. Parikh accompanied President Clinton when he visited Gujarat to assess the impact of the earthquake in 2001. He's closely involved with the Share and Care Foundation, a nonprofit helping the poorest of the poor in India. From 1995 through 2005, Dr. Parikh funded a scholarship program for undergraduate students in the Indian-American community through the Share and Care Foundation. As a physician, Dr. Parikh is particularly gratified by his effort to raise substantial amount of funds for the Gujarat Cancer Society and the Nargis Dutt Foundation.
