If you are a regular reader of my blog I’m sure you will be happy to learn that in January – after about 18 months – I finally met a SINGLE smart, handsome Indian power guy (ahhhh the best kind!) who I basically fell head-over-heels coo coo for ‘at first sight’ and we started dating.Some of them found their “true love” on their first meeting itself. There are barely any answers that are from people outside India.
It is the 7 largest country in the world by land area, and the second most populous, with a population of over 1.2 billion people.

In the middle regions a number of tribal languages of the Munda or Austroasiatic family are spoken.
In the northeastern hills, numerous Tibeto-Burman languages are spoken. The national flag, which was adopted in 1947, is a tricolor of deep saffron, white, and green, in horizontal bands (with green at the bottom).
However, in modern India in a business context, and certainly within leading Indian and international companies, caste-related identification is no longer the norm.
Over the last 50-60 years the Indian legislature has increasingly passed laws to reinforce the more modern outlook and to promote and support social welfare. Should you be looking to travel, live, relocate or do business in the sovereign state, we will give you a helpful head start on understanding the country and its culture.India, officially the Republic of India, is a sovereign state in South Asia, where it comprises the bulk of the Indian peninsula.well, it was a nice change of pace to be with someone who told me he had no issue with that at all.All this time I sort of thought that if I were younger, or maybe if I’d never been married, or if I didn’t have my lovely daughter in her last year of high school that maybe I could have a relationship with an Indian man.Obviously I haven’t dated much in India, two men isn’t enough to make a truly convincing case on the subject, so my experience level is low.
