Abstract: The Indian people migrated in waves to the United Kingdom: this article seeks to describe these migration waves, their direction, and the Indian diaspora in the United Kingdom, one of the largest such diasporas in the world today. In contrast to others, ethnically Indian communities began to be markedly affected by migration processes just two hundred years ago, although ephemeral contacts and the movement of peoples in southeastern Asia have been observed since the beginning of our era. The largest community of Indians in Europe has settled in the United Kingdom. After India gained independence in 1947, the United Kingdom seemed attracive to Indians because of its standard of living, language, and favorable immigration laws. The situation changed in the 1970s when immigration from India to the UK diminished upon adoption of quota laws. Later, in the 1980s, these laws were softened, resulting in an influx of two million Indians to England‘s industrial cities
