HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The publisher of Texas' largest Asian American newspaper is celebrating his 86th birthday.
Koshy Thomas founded Voice of Asia in 1987.
"I thought this is a good idea to connect with people," he explained.
The newspaper is published weekly, and over the years, has been a way for immigrant families to connect with both their former and current homes.
More than 150,000 Indian Americans live in the Houston area.
Back in August, Eyewitness News announced a partnership with Voice of Asia as part of our commitment to covering Houston's diverse communities.
