India is one huge country. And I don’t say that based on its shape or size or the number of people rushing past each other. It’s the sheer presence of a variety of everything you can name under the sun: food, clothing, weather, water, people, language, etc.
Humber College boasts of a large international community, and my recent trip to India focused on just that – to create a stronger presence of our Humber community through fairs and seminars, thousands of miles away from Canada in India. From Ludhiana in the north to Bangalore down south – I managed to tip-toe into three metropolitan cities and a few other big ones too.
Each fair was packed with students, eager to learn about Canadian education. The admission fairs were organized at Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Jalandhar, New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad. I couldn't believe how different the people were in each of these cities. The weather was much hotter, and a pleasant surprise compared to the prolonged Canadian winter this year!
A trip to India is never a short story. Since I was on duty, the fun and frolic of the journey was limited. But my work gave me the chance to meet amazing people and take a break from my usual routine!
