When I decided to go to India for a two-week vacation I knew exactly what to expect; hot weather, a great disparity between the wealthy and poor; food that could taste, at first, great then keep you in bed for a week; lots of history, the Taj Mahal, and the list went on and on.
I also did what many people do before going to India – I read a book called Shantaram, by Gregory David Roberts, a run-away Australian criminal turned Mumbai-local. Roberts, in 1,000 pages, describes his India experience in such detail that after finishing the book you feel as though you know more about India than any Indian you have ever met. To top that, most of my professional life I spent marketing some type of product or service to Asians, which of course includes Indians. I know Indian holidays, celebrity names, sports heroes, differences between Indian states, traditions, the languages people speak, and I could even say a few words in Hindi.
