RISING SUN (IEICC).

The conclave was a very good experience. It was well organised and was graced by Eminent East Indians. His Lordship, Bishop John Rodrigues, Justice Aguiar (Retd.) and Professor Lila D’souza, an educationist and long time President of Bombay East Indian Association (BEIA), were prominent among the participants. His Lordship said, “I am an East Indian and I am proud of being an East Indian”. 

INTERNATIONAL EAST INDIAN COMMUNITY COUNCIL (IEICC), now becomes an umbrella organisation of East Indian Community. Other organisations, which heather-to, were serving the community’s interest individually, now could affiliate to IEICC. It is in the best interest of the community.
