As I note in a later discussion, I think going to India/Amroha is critically important to placing the ‘learned’ culture in contact. It allowed me to work out when a certain culture should be more dominant than another. I dont think you have to apply a particular cultural approach to all situations and going there and seeing how my peers reacted to similar situations as faced in the west – e.g. group dynamics amongst a similar age group or the fun created out of meeting at large events, be it a wedding or religious – was a very important part of my personal development.

I believe that this applies to me.Raising childen in west is not easy as the dominant culture is so different to ours.But I beleive that culture is evolving thing.So we need to ove with time.

This topic is extremely important.I am surprised that more people have not contrbuted because it must affect all of us.Keeping our Amroha values and adopting to western culture has been a big challenge for me.How are you coping?

I can idenify with this topic. Unfortunately I have not visited Amroha yet.But I am looking forward to it as I have heared so many stories.
