Do the moderators of this page have any advice for a member of the Indian diaspora looking to self-study Hindi (starting from zero knowledge), living in the U.S.? (so no immersion opportunities). Thanks!

I’m in the same boat as you. I speak Punjabi but I’m trying to pick up Hindi (which thankfully, is very similar). I use these resources:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0071736050/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1397916638&sr=8-1

And then of course, watch a lot of films so you can hear the language being used. Good luck!

A professor at NCSU made a video series of taped lessons that’s pretty good for beginners: http://taj.chass.ncsu.edu

I think Disney Channel India has also made a few Hindi language versions of American Disney Channel sitcoms.  Given that (I think) these are basically direct translations aside from some cultural stuff, that also seems like a good avenue if you can find them.
