Interesting Links for South Asians

I wanted to post some interesting links that I think South Asian and South Asian-Americans will find useful. The South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA) has created a website listing stories about South Asian victims from the World Trade Center. Many of these articles have come from either Newsday or the NYT's series "Portraits of Grief."

In addition, I wanted to post this link about a Doctor who is doing some really relevant research with regards to South Asians and heart disease. I think it is important to support research that identifies correlations between different ethnic groups and certain diseases. With regards to South Asians as a group and the plethora of doctors that belong to this group, not enough research is being conducted with regards to South Asians and diseases that seem to effect us more as an ethnic group. Ragavendra Baliga has developed an interesting website discussing Coronary Artery Disease in Indian Asians.
