A few months back I recorded myself on YouTube talking about my thoughts and experiences integrating the cultures of India and America in my life here in America. The three videos total about 15 minutes. Listen at your leisure! I would really be happy to hear your feedback on the videos. Log into this blog to leave your feedback or I have provided links under each video to the YouTube sites where you can leave your comments as well!!

This series of videos explores cultural differences between America and India from an American who lived in India wanting to know the life of an average person in India. What is cultural integration? What can help ease culture shock and culture integration? What are everyday experiences of life in India or America that can be learned before or immediately upon entering the foreign country that can make life easier?


Three videos on India-America Cross Cultural Integration from my YouTube account.
