Community leaders including, leading business owners greeted the initiative. Shudh Parkash Singh, who is at the frontline in every initiative in New York and Indian diaspora in the US, said the opening of the new lounge was very timely as South Asians are entering in public life while mainstream is looking at diaspora as game changers.

Every community leader, including Mohinder Taneja, a veteran in public life among others, said Radio Zindagi engages the diaspora through its quality content. They played big role during pandemic through live talk shows covering healthcare critical issues to inform on developments. Radio Zindagi and the Indian EYE have been in the forefront with strong CSR mandate towards community in the past two decades.
