On May 22, 2001, Newsday reported that "evidence of the explosive growth of Queens' Indian population is showing up in neighborhoods across the borough, way beyond the borders of the community's historical base in Jackson Heights...The population growth is welcomed by Indian community and religious leaders who have learned that higher population numbers can be translated into a stronger political base, better social services and wider opportunities for future generations."
