World Wide Thursday: India, and a Marriage of Two Cultures
Free, all ages, 7 p.m., amanda@thecommonspace.org
Attendance: 16 people

Our popular monthly discussion focusing on interesting places around the globe with a St. Louis connection shifts — for this month only! — to Thursday and a fascinating look at a family that has combined American and Indian cultures. Amit Bhagat has lived in the United States for 9 years, and is married to a white, American woman. He and Laya (her Indian name) will talk about some of the differences they've noticed between American and Indian families. They were married in India and have visited together on several occasions, most recently with their 7-month-old daughter for his brother's marriage. Join us for what promises to be an interesting evening of insights into Indian culture, and perhaps your own.
