    That's great to hear. People are generally welcoming and show a lot of hospitality (not that different from the Southern Hospitality :-)

    I am pleasantly surprised with all the India interest, frankly. Been on this board for 10+ years, we haven't had a discussion like this. Things are changing down south :-) Just kidding Feel like am representing a billion plus people on here, way too much responsibility :-)

    Funny, I was just going to mention that if you are going to India, try to get invited to a wedding. Looks like you had a ball. People forget India is very diverse. Many religions, languages, food, dress , its a big chaos, but in a good way if you enjoy that kind off a thing

    Yeah for South Indian, my parents being from Kerala, you get unique foods that are Kerala specific. - Malabar Beef Curry, Avial (vegetable medley) . Also Chennai food thats really good are Dosa, Vada , Sambar (lentil/curry dish) etc. Not to mention the sweet stuff.

    Wow, I didnt take sociology so probably didnt know him. But, yeah you should plan a trip to India before it changes too much. i know what you are saying about those Shakar Paras ...they are good. You should try some south Indian food, they are distinctly different as well. While I was at Auburn, had no luck finding Indian food, some of my friends would make that trip to Atlanta to grab a bite. Enjoyed reading it ...

    Hi JFD.., grew up in Chennai (which used to be Madras) . Its nice little town of now over 7 million I think. It was a lot more sleepy then, but these days I can't even recognize the place sometimes. I tell people, if you love Indian food, its a lot easier to travel there. Otherwise, between the crowds of people, pollution, heat (depending on where you are), it can be rough. Well , let me correct myself. Was there this summer and we went and checked out many Small Eateries, really good food and a lot of Western/Indian fusion type of food. There is ton to see in India , but you need atleast a month to actually get a good feel I know many talk about visiting India for spiritual reasons - its a country where many old religions have lived together for hundreds of years. Literally next to each other. Its a cool thing to experience as well
