I'va had the opinion for a long time that India and the United States have a lot of things in common, even while we also have many things that are different. I am seeing in your series that the people of India yearn for freedom and self-expression a lot more than I would have been led to believe if I just read the superficial histories.

I admire the advances India is making as a society, and many of the struggles seem parallel to those we have had to make here in the U.S. - civil rights, equal rights for women, keeping a close eye on government, coping with a growing economy and simply making ends meet within the family.

Thank you for showing us yet another side of a huge and important nation, the world's largest Democracy, as some have called India.

Dear Chef,

I appreciate your enthusiasm.It is point in history that all countries which suffer forign rule,struggle to come out of that an any cost. Natural-what could be dearer than free existance?In our ancient epic -Ramayana , Rama tells his brother Lakshmana-'Nothing can equal mother and motherland;not even the heaven'.

India suffered bitter forign rule and attacks than America. America had no developed civilization when British occupied it. But India had well developed civilization,culture,science. technology, mathematics, medicine system, everything.With attacks by forigners right from 10th century,we lost much of those.British rule forced us to change our life style itself.That is more harmful.

Yes, I know that long ago India had science and philosophy that was the envy of the world. Today there are some who are surprised that there are so many Indian scientists and doctors! They don't know that this is an ancient tradition in India!

Too bad the British, who were so kind to some, were so cruel to people in India. But that is a lesson I hope my country remembers - be kind to everyone!

Thanks for the insights!
