India Trip: Conclusion

Well we've been back in the US for a few days now, and its really good to be home. India was a really interesting place, full of warmth from family, and so many contradictions. I'm really happy that I didn't get sick from the food while I was there, and enjoyed all the amazing sights. The biggest problem I had was all the pollution and garbage all over the country. It is such a beautiful place that it made me sad to see how badly it has been kept. Everything there seemed to be at contrast with each other, but somehow it all worked. It will be really intersting to see how things change and evolve by the time we visit again, I'm hopeful that much of the pollution problems will be better as globalization takes hold. But at the same time I hope that India is able to remain India, and keep some of its rich culture.

You raise an interesting question when you wonder whether India is able to "retain its rich culture" in the face of the sea of garbage that its people wade through each day. It seems to me the garbage problem is as much a function of culture as an enemy of it.

I will post additional comments on this subject on my blog today. For a more hopeful look at one small NGO is doing, be sure to read Yoo-Mi's blog today.
