Today, Sacramento Kings Major Owner Vivek Ranadivé, the first Indian-born owner in NBA history, served as Grand Marshal for the world’s largest India Day Parade in New York City.

The parade, which honors India’s Independence Day, was broadcast in over 40 countries and reached over three-million Asian-Indians in America.

Mr. Ranadivé was asked to participate in the parade for his contributions as an Indian-American that has enriched and inspired so many Indians in the United States and abroad.
