America has always been a dream destination for many Indian IT professionals. It is the Mecca for the young and talented Indians, most of them are attracted by the paychecks in dollars, which might be less as compared to American workers, but it holds good value when converted to Indian rupees when they return or send money back home.
Another reason to migrate would be a better lifestyle. The reason which remains obscured from many that are among the prime factors to drive them to other countries is the sense of incompetence. As per the $150 Billion IT industry, the career of an Indian IT professional is considered incomplete without an on-site experience.
These IT professionals use H1B visa or  L1 visa to migrate to the US as temporary immigrant workers with special skills, while some choose the path to pursue a Master's degree from any US university that charges hefty amounts.
As soon as the news broke out of an alleged hate crime in which a white, Navy veteran Adam Purinton, 51 shot and killed an Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32 and wounded another Indian engineer Alok Madasani, 32 in a Kansas bar, the whole world went into a shock and grief. Both engineers work for Garmin Ltd. Kuchibhotla pursued his master's in electronics from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2007. This is the first hate crime against an Indian after Trump administration, which has the policy of "America First" came to power. Trump administration also has plans to curb the H-1B visa program.This unfortunate incident will make many Indian professionals introspect and rethink that is America still a dream?
This incident also raises a question are we exherting excess pressure on Indian IT professionals to earn dollars?
The gofundme page has gathered over $0.6 million to support the engineers family to send his body back home to Hyderabad India. 
Watch the video as Sunayana Dumala talks about her late husband, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, during a news conference at Garmin Headquarters in Olathe, Kansas.
