Joel Stein vs. Rahul K. Parikh

A couple weeks ago TIME columnist Joel Stein wrote a very interesting article titled “My Own Private India” where he reflects on the impact of Indian culture in the New Jersey suburb he grew up in. Though I found this amusing, it definitely touched a sore spot on a lot of Indian Americans and even generated an amazing response from CNN Correspondent and fellow Indian American Rahul Parikh (read here). I 100% agree with Rahul’s response, but I expect these types of articles to be written on any & all cultures.  When you live in a country with such diversity and a constant changing demographic, there is definitely going to be anger or jokes made because change is always a tough thing to swallow. The great thing is that we can have an open discussion. Read both articles for yourself and decide!
