Myths, misconceptions and misinformation about others often leads to misunderstandings and complications in relationships. Stereotypes and myths help us to make sense out of things we can not comprehend, things that are bigger than us. However, stereotypes and myths often lead to building of walls and ignorance of who the other person really is. I want to educate others about the myths, stereotypes and erronous beliefs people have about American culture and Indian culture.

I don’t recommend this, unless, it is shut off to traffic! We went to walk on Rochester’s Inner Loop yesterday, July 29, 2007. The city shut it off for traffic from 8am -2pm. We got there about 10am. Not many people were there. We entered near the East Main entrance and walked toward the new Frederick Douglass-Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge. It was a nice walk. Read More »
