Culture has a significant role to play on one’s life and defines the character of a person, so being Indian-American, my world is split between two cultures, forcing me to play a dual role. For instance, I spend half-day at school living as an American, and at home experience a true Indian lifestyle. As an Indian in America, I face the world with self-identification issues, are open to a great selection of opportunities, and have an impact on society from the moment I was born.
Bronx Motel Lingers is located in my neighborhood, and it might be one the reasons why prostitutes are lingering around my neighborhood. According to the New York Times article “A Murder at a Bronx Motel Lingers, Three Years Later” states Anthony Martino AKA J.J was murder at in one of the rooms. A woman told the police she had been with him earlier, and that he had been alive when she left. She also, told the police that she was a prostitute and he was her pimp. The murder investigation would eventually lead to a man from Boston, Samuel L. Whiteside. He was a pimp and had been running prostitutes since at least January 2012. Whiteside been getting girls from all over Rhode Island, New Jersey, Illinois and New York. When the girl arrived
Not only is my heritage a huge part of my cultural identity, but so are my hobbies and habits. Although my parents and ancestors are Indian, I was born and raised here in the United States. Therefore, some of my habits and interests can be described as “Americanized”. For example, I am a huge sports
As an immigrant, growing up was always difficult for me. I was raised as an Indian child, yet at the same time I was trying to blend in as an American. I was bullied and viewed weirdly for having Indian food that looked and smelt differently, and unfortunately the prejudice never changed as I grew older. Even though the name calling, ridiculous questions, and living a double life was irritating, it was bearable. Because my parents chose to relocate, they also unknowingly chose to give up traditions that may be lost in future generations.
Congress is not restricted in regulating interstate commerce just because the commerce it is dealing with was also deemed a moral and social wrong. The power to regulate commerce includes the power to regulate the local incidents that may have a substantial effect on commerce. Congress can adopt the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to apply to a motel that serves interstate travelers under the Commerce Clause.
When looking at other people’s culture, we like to compare our traditions to theirs. For example, we can’t really “put ourselves in someone else’s shoes” because they have a different cultural background and a different view of the world. In the story, “Two Ways to Belong in America” by Bharati Mukherjee, she sees herself as a different person when compared to her sister Mira, although they both follow the same Indian culture. Bharati and Mira are both sisters that abandoned their Indian culture later on for the reason that they found the American culture interesting than their own. Mira abandoned her Indian culture at 1962, and her sister Bharati abandoned the culture at in

As a family, we follow Hinduism and participate in all the traditions. We have integrated into the US culture and continue to identify with our Indian heritage.
Indian-Americans ranging from ages 16-24 that are first generation Americans undergo the stages of minority identity development. They are commonly placed in environments which force them to question their own identity. As they communicate with peers, they question themselves and their personal beliefs and customs. Occasionally, they view the majority culture as better than their own and may develop negative feelings of their Indian household upbringing. One may feel the need to internalize the values of the dominant culture of the community and change to fit the status quo. This is especially difficult for Indian-Americans because so many things that they are taught within the home are not normal for the majority culture therefore presenting a major division and causing an uproar in the home. Parents tend to view “normal” majority culture attributes as
Adaption is the human body’s way of survival. The environment around us will never cease to change and transform, so we have no choice but to keep up. Being born in India and immigrating to the States with my parents at the young age of five was a change that was not comprehensible to me at the time. I didn’t understand that our culture would become a mockery and our food with its strong aromas would be ridiculed. Assimilating was the only way to be accepted by others. Pretending to belong and understand American culture was confusing but slowly became second nature.
Growing up as a son of Indian immigrants in the South, I dealt with a lot of questions about my cultural identity from both people I encountered and myself. How I answered these questions determined a great deal of what kind of person I would be; however, rather than being pushed toward one culture versus the other, I found myself questioning how culture shapes a person.
As an Indian born in The United States of America, I faced numerous challenges integrating myself into a society where I am a minority. At the beginning of my childhood, I did not see a difference between myself and my peers. I became friends with almost all the children that were my age in my neighborhood, and I began to compare our lifestyles. It was then that I realized that my family was distinct, in the sense that we ate Indian food instead of American, we practiced Hinduism instead of Christianity, and we spoke more Hindi instead of English. Many of the neighborhood families were interested in learning about our culture, yet some were distracted by our skin color.

1.)I have been working since I was about 17, and as of now I have held multiple different positions, in various institutions. Each of these positions required a different set of skills and attributes, nevertheless they all required the same dedication and focus. I have always been one to show up and complete with my daily tasks, however there is a specific situation that I recall that required me to step up and do more than I was required to.
