“Those Immigrants!”

The NPR affiliate in Philadelphia, WHYY, ran a wonderful piece on, “Those Immigrants!” last night on, “Newsworks”–http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/nwtonight/item/97223-exploring-the-indian-immigrant-experience

The host was kind of a brilliant guy, really good at conversation and asked sharp and insightful questions, and Ajay Raju, who joined me for the interview, is by far one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met due to his intellect, creativity, and resilience.  I was lucky to have him agree to be in my book.

Meanwhile, in the confines of home, projects on race in New Jersey and the psychology of Japanese gastronomy–its history and ideology–take pride of place.

Oh, did I mention that Tropical Foods in Roxbury is really spectacular?  It is: Light years better than Whole Foods due its selection of well-priced fruits and vegetables, the very pleasant vibe of staff and customers, and the beautiful music playing as one shops: African rhythms or R&B.
