Why Students Chose India

India is about 1/3 the size of the United States, yet it is the second most populous country in the world, with a population of 1,166,079,217.
India is the largest democracy in the world
India has the world’s largest movie industry, based in the city of Mumbai (known as the “City of Dreams”). The B in “Bollywood” comes from Bombay, the former name for Mumbai. Almost all Bollywood movies are musicals.l
More than a million Indians are millionaires, yet most Indians live on less than two dollars a day. An estimated 35% of India’s population lives below the poverty line.l

The Take Away for me
It takes forever getting anywhere.
That the people of India want to succeed and become a super power
We only could see the poor as poor
There is acceptance, ignorance, and tolerance among a culture that is not used to the west.
There is awe in the work they do to harvest food, move surplus, and just day-to-day work.
We may not have seen the fine gold temples, or the decorated elephants, but we did see the Southern Indian culture that is filled with tradition and history.
We learned so many things. Patience, not to take the small joys for granted, a sense of independence, culture of an emerging country, and the art of negotiation.
This took 28 hours all together GFK, MSP, Paris, Bangalore
