Let’s chat about Indian Marriage.

I implore you to think before you start pressuring young women and men in the community – is this what YOU want or is this what THEY want? Why is it that you’re so quick to judge women and not men? Why do we have to stoop to their level to get something accomplished? Why can’t we be better?

Where Have I Been?

I write this piece as I know many first and second-generation Indian Americans leave our cultural communities and live their lives outside of these groups just fine. I envy them. Perhaps it was because of my upbringing, but not matter how many times I try to walk away – I find myself always coming back as I am a person who believes in the power of community, and it was through this community where I procured most of my talents and interests.

Enough is Enough

I’ve grown to realize when working in organizations, it’s tough for individuals like myself to stand up for ourselves and what we believe in due to certain gaps – cultural, generational, egotistical, etc.
