I have OCI from when I got citizenship of country A (not US). I now have US citizenship and a new last name - should I get a new OCI card tied to my new passport/name? Anyone have similar experience?

Are we finally past the Pyramid scheme madness? I rarely see people approaching me for MLM businesses nowadays.

Recently started online dating for the first time in US. Interested in Indian women only. Getting a lot of ABCD matches. However, MOST of them unmatch after I tell them that I grew up in India. What am I missing here?

Has anyone ordered mangoes from India (esp Alphonso)? If so then from which site? I havenโ€™t seen any in the stores around. Maybe due to covid?

Does anyone know of any good immigration attorneys to discuss options/pathways to move from H1B to H4 for a few months? Iโ€™m burnt out and desperately need some time to pause and think about whatโ€™s next. I know the timing is not great, but I need a break for my own mental health and sanity. I also know that one typically cannot stay in the US if one takes a sabbatical on an H1B. Spouse and I both have I-140s but stuck in the perpetual GC queue (both Indian born), if thatโ€™s any consideration. TIA!

My EB-1 Indian friends -> I heard there is some good movement expected for EB-1 Final Action dates in the coming months. My priority date is Feb 2018 and it was a concurrent filing. Have my EAD, interview happened last year - any idea on when I could expect to receive my card? Would it be realistic to expect it in FY 2021 at least? Apologies if this isnโ€™t the best forum to ask.
