    Welcome home. I have followed your post for the past several months with interest. And Have learned a lot from your post. Would like to meet & chat if you are inclined & have time.

    I lived in southern Nepal just a few minutes north of the border with Bihar from 67-69 as a peace corps volunteer. For many reasons I spent more time traveling in India & spoke some Hindi & Bhojpuri.

    I know much has changed since then & I have been back a few times. But never spent much time in the cities & with 21st century business & technical professionals. So would enjoy hearing more. Let me know if you’re interested & we’ll fix a time.

    And if you’re curious about how desis showcase India there is a festival this coming Saturday in Acton. I expect this is probably the last thing you’d like to do.

    Glad to hear boxes reached all in one piece! You seemed to escape just before the full blown Monsoon arrived and dams are full again. Hope India makes progress and there are less and less of the sad things, but its going to take long time.

    I also amused by previous post, I come from same state as the gentleman mentioned. Will be interesting to converse with him in Bhojpuri:)
