Just wanna dance with it
I've never heard the same ringtone twice
They can say Namaste, Aap kaise hain and Main acchi hoon.When they hear Mahi Ve
from Kal Ho Na Ho, they jump up and dance. They've seen Varsham, been on the
MMTS and bought pearls. So what, you might say.Well, for a regular Hyderabadi,
all this may be no big deal, but we're talking about three people from the land
of the Stars and Stripes.
They are Jacqueline Berger , Michele Steele and Guy Groot, in the city on Rotary
district 3150's Group Study Exchange programme. Part of a sixmember team from
Chicago, they are here as ambassadors of their country, to promote an
understanding of their culture and way of life, while soaking in ours.
Smiles the pleasant Jackie, who works as the director, special programmes,
University of Illinois, "This is a wonderful vehicle for getting an insider
perspective on Indian life. We've been here for about a month and every few days
we change homes, living with various Indian host families."
The team has also been to Guntur, Vijayawada and Nagarjuna Sagar. While Jackie
is impressed with how clean and cosmopolitan Hyderabad is, Michele has a
different take. The 26-year-old TV programme producer smiles impishly, "I find
two things here most amazing. One is the openness with which people talk about
anything from politics to religion and relationships.
The second is the sheer number of people and the range of mobile phone ringtones!
In the US, you mostly get to hear the same boring Nokia tone. Here, I've never
heard the same ringtone twice." And as Jackie adds, "Or had the same meal twice.
The range of Indian food is incredible."
Jackie is also excited about the Ganesha she bought for her husband's car. "He
needs it to keep him safe. Of course, traffic there is nothing like here. When
you see trucks coming head on, it's not good for your stress levels!"
