I was very much impressed by the two-page feature in the Time Out section of the April 22 Japan Times about the large Indian diaspora in Japan. The trade between the two countries is now growing, and such articles provide and insight into the Indian mind.

India is home to 32 spoken languages and 22,000 dialects. India is also the world’s largest English-speaking country. More than a billion Indians worship about 2 million different gods. All major religions of the world reside there. It’s truly “unity in diversity.”

The Indian “techies” have made quite an impression on the world map. I am an Indian knowledge worker myself, with one of the major auto companies in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka. I have lived with my family there for more than two years.

The information provided in the article on the Central Board of Secondary Education-affiliated Indian international schools is really useful for my daughter starting school next year. My wife and I also became very excited about “Namaste India 2006” and the quintessential Indian curry.

I’d like to give a special thanks to all the writers.
