    Incredible India: What I Learned In One Short Week

    in Business

    Some shows are easier to create than others.  This program is definitely one of them. Today I’ll share my thoughts and new knowledge about the world’s second largest  country and it biggest democracy....INDIA.

    The land of Hindus, Muslims, Christians and other faiths living side by side... where coexistence is the better option for all.  The land where the rights of women are still being fought and where basic essentials that we, in America completely take for granted are still a luxury for more than 53% of the Indian people.  

    It was an extraordinary trip for me that I am still savoring....still reflecting.  And it was a trip that has me searching for new answers, new meaning, new relevance as I connect the dots between the Indians I now call my brothers and sisters..OVER THERE....and South Asian Indians I know and respect here in America.  

    This is only the beginning of my journey to India.  It’s one that you won’t want to miss.

    And we’ll also talk with award winning PR guru Terrie Williams and her continued advocacy for mental health issues in African American communities across the nation.
