A new blog

India in Ann Arbor is a new blog about the many Indian influences in Ann Arbor - food, performing and visual arts, film, literature, people, business, fashion, handicrafts, yoga, meditation, Bollywood, and perhaps many others. I expect to write about how these influences from India flourish and shape the vibrant Ann Arbor community. I am not imagining it as yet another blog with restaurant, film or book reviews. I would like to write about the people who are connected to India in different ways - their lives and stories, the different ways in which elements of Indian culture and traditions interface with those of the local community, the history of the Indian community in Ann Arbor, the role that the University of Michigan plays in highlighting India in the community, etc. I plan to post interesting interviews with local people and insightful pieces written by invited guests. In keeping with my personal interest in photography, I also hope to include relevant photographs with the posts.

My hope is that this blog will not only provide interesting reading but will also be a resource for the community. I look forward to hearing from you through your comments and views!

Sreyashi, I am delighted to see your new blog. And even though I live in Pittsburgh and am not Indian, I am interested in India and Ann Arbor. You introduced me to both India and Ann Arbor, and I am forever thankful. Congratulations!

Dear Sreyashi,

Happy to read your encounter with different types of tea(s) at Tea Haus. It is good to know that there is such a nice place for tea in Ann Arbor.
