The India Abroad awards in pictures
In his acceptance speech, Jindal recalled the Indian American dream and experience, and commended the community for being a role model for other immigrant groups. He referred to the award as "a tremendous honour."
Bobby Jindal is only the second Indian American to ever be elected United States Congressman. The first was Dalip Singh Saund, who won a Congress seat from California nearly half a century ago.
