Samosas, golgappas, and khoya were among the Indian food items which were served at the White House at a reception on the occasion of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month.

The White House’s Marine Band played ‘Sare Jahan Se Accha Hindustan Hamara’, the popular Indian patriotic song, media reports said.

The month of May is celebrated as Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month. AANHPI encompasses cultures from Asia and the Pacific Islands of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia, including around 50 ethnic groups and 100 languages.

The month was chosen because the first Japanese immigrant arrived in the US in May 1843. It also honours the Chinese immigrants who helped finish the transcontinental railroad in May 1869, India Today reported.
