People in South Asian studies often look at the topic of the 'Indian
Diaspora,' and much less frequently at immigrant communities in India.
An interesting new book on the latter subject, which might have escaped
the notice of interested scholars, is the following:

Oxfield, Ellen.  Blood, sweat, and mahjong: family and enterprise in an
overseas Chinese community.  Ithaca: Cornell Univ. Press. 1993

It deals with Chinese, especially Hakka, communities in Calcutta.
