Coming to America as a single Indian women in 1970 was supposed to be a short term fun adventure. In my subconscious mind, I expected to go back home, get married and settle in India. Instead, I have lived here for more than 40 years. I have tried to hold on to my Indian roots through religion, food, music and dance, Hindi movies etc.. However slowly, American culture has seeped into my psyche, so sometimes I feel like an American, yet at some level I am an Indian. Juxtaposition of the two cultures and norms has been an interesting long term adventure.
