"Do not speak in Hindi or any other Indian language when at a public place," was the most common suggestion that was made. Vikram Jangam, general secretary of the Telangana American Telugu Association put out a list of suggestions to stay safe in the US.

Tips to stay safe in the US:

  • Do not get into argument with others at public places
  • Should someone be provoking you, avoid confronting and please leave the place immediately.
  • As much as we love talking in our mother tongue, it can often be misconstrued.
  • Please see if you can communicate in English in public places.
  • Isolated places can often be targets. Please avoid going or staying single.
  • In emergency situations, please do not hesitate to call 911. Officers can come and help in such situations.
  • Please be aware of your surroundings and say something if you see anything suspicious.
