Global Village

To know what is globalization and it's effect, the best book is "The world is flat" Thomas Friedman.
If you are looking for a much more crispier one, it is here .[Both in my humble opinion]

Thanks to the lots of factors mentioned in the book, I am lucky enough to be a global citizen of this global village.

Once when I went out for a lunch to a Japanese restaruant with a vietnamese guy along with an indian and a desi american[Green Card Holding NRI] in US of the A.

The vietnamese guy who was eating the rice with chop sticks asked me, "How do you people eat rice with fingers?"

Until last friday, I was thinking, the above conversation holds the top rank in my globalization experience until I happen to over hear the following conversation.

An European counterpart asked an Indian Counterpart, " How is your wife doing?" Indian replied, and asked back, "How is your Dog?"
