A Blast of the Past #84: India Exchange

Standard

It has been just under a decade since these pictures were taken, but they were at the beginning of a very significant intercultural journey for me. The opportunities that have allowed me to develop relationships with people from the Indian Subcontinent have led to my working on my current Master’s Degree in Communications, and to focus on ways to help improve communications between the two cultures where the two can communicate with parity and equality  between each other.

I won’t claim to have become an expert, or a paragon of intercultural communication. But these pictures from a simple meal, where these intercultural visitors were invited into our home, show the way: an openness, and a willingness, on both sides, to meet, to make mistakes, and to understand.

These pictures also show the youthful enthusiasm of my son in greeting everyone.
