If you've ever been to Fremont, you'll slowly realize that it's populated with lots of East Indians. Many in Northern California refer to it as "Little India". When Bharat Bazar was established in 1974, Indians were just starting to immigrate to Fremont.
Indians were drawn to this area for two main reasons. One was rent and the other is the school system.
Today rent isn't as affordable as 20 years ago. The city has developed stronger infrastructure, new housing and the schools are top notch - most notably Mission San Jose High School, which constantly ranks as a top 100 school in the nation. Also its worth noting that Fremont is a part of Silicon Valley!
As Indians started to settle in Fremont, the culture naturally flourished into the market place as commerce. Food is a part of any culture, and with Indians it's especially important.
Indian food isn't just about eating. It's a full on sensory experience that is best enjoyed with others. Have you ever ate with your hands? If not, try it. Some scientists have concluded that taste is enhanced when not using utensils.
Today we wanted to share the top 10 Indian restaurants in Fremont!

This auspicious day is celebrated amongst Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs all over the world.
It's an important day for many reasons. Aside from the colorful decorations, sparklers, brightly lit diyas (ornament candles) and the quintessential sweets, the celebration of Diwali goes far deeper.
It's a time when good triumphs over evil, where the dormant become enlightened and where Love for all reigns supreme.
In sanskrit Diwali means rows of lighted lamps. The reasons why diyas are lit vary for the different faiths in India.
How Indians Celebrate
- In North India, Diwali marks the return of the Hindu Lord Rama as he comes back home to Ayodhya after defeating the Lord Ravana. The lighted lamps represent a path for his way home and it's also symbolic of good over evil.
- In South India, it's when Lord Krishna defeats the demon Lord Narakasur and represent the same concept of good over evil as the North.
- In Jainism, it marks the nirvana or spiritual awakening of Lord Mahavira.
- In Sikhism it marks the day that Guru Hargobind Ji, the Sixth Sikh Guru was freed from imprisonment.
No matter how you celebrate, Diwali is a time to get together with loved ones and bring in the New Year with a clean slate.
We at Bharat Bazar would like to wish you all a Happy and safe Diwali!
Delicious sweets, an array of beautiful colors, brightly lit sparkles and endless smiles from loved ones. This is what Diwali represents. It's a time for friends and family to get together. It's a time to wish others happiness and success in the upcoming year. It's a time to acknowledge our past woes for what they were and know that the future is upon us with a clean slate.
It's a very special time.
Diwali is celebrated by Sikhs, Hindu's and and Jains all over the world. In India the auspicious day is so extravagant with light shows to match, that you can literally see the celebrations via satellite.
