Hi everyone,

                    i am manish (manu), right now i am living in Czech republic(Europe) doing job in IT field. i just wanted to share u thoughts about culture shocks we feel when we come out of our country. our country is so culture rich Smile, we live with our family, we respect our elders, we believe in God. but when i came here i was shocked that they do not have any cultureConfused.  here people know only one thing FREEDOM, they just wanna be free at the cost of their family, friendship or God. 

               i would love if all of u would take interest in this and share ur thoughts on this topic.

well im from canada and yehh i sumwat agree with u. it not the same outside of india, but if i had a choice i would prefer to stay where i am rite now. here there is a lot about personal freedom as well, and less of that indian culture stuff. we arnt extremly religious, but still have beliefe in our religions. since im from an area where there are A LOT of indians, i dont find that there is a lack of indian culture. infact, its actually a blend of indian and canadian culture. but not all people here would defy their families or god for their freedom. i think it just depends on where u are from.

i agree wit u jyoti, im in america and yeah were not totally religious but we do have culture. and compared to some acteress and actors in india( im not offending anyone) the ppl here that rnt indian are even more cultured. in a way i would say its more cultured here becuz here everyone is of another race so we have to respect all cultures. i mean me school has mexicans pakis indians chinese vietnamese hmong filipino domincan caucasian african american afhanistani jordanian palestinian jewish german french british greeks and the list just goes on. so i dont really think we lack culture. it doesnt have to do where ur from but wat type of person u r.
