Transcript Birds of a feather Internationals feel at home What would you do if you, and a very few number of your friends, had to study in a foreign country, with foreign customs, language, and food? You and your friends would band together and become very close to one another and others who shared your ways. Cougar Place, and even more so the Cougar Apartments, have witnesssed such bondings of people from countries foreign to America. Several Indians have gone to the extent to form an organization — Divine Brain Trust, or DBT — to allow for discussions and expression of the Indian culture. After meetings, many resident and commuter Indians usually went over to one of the resident's rooms to help cook Indian food for everyone. "Most residents were guys, who could only cook the basics like rice and certain vegetables. Some of us girls who lived at home and knew how to cook would sometimes make more dif- ficult-to-make items that the guys would really appreciate," said Shetil Patel, a Finance major. Nikhil Mehta, the only remaining founder of DBT still studying at UH, described other ways that these resident students kept ties with the Indian heritage. "We participate actively in the Indian Students Association, and also the Indian community organizations such as the Gu- jarati Samaj, folk dance competition, and religious organizations such as the Jain Society and Swadhaya," said Mehta. The sharing seems to come easy to these students. Paresh Parikh emphasized that he remembered what his mother told him before he left India-, "share everything with your fellow Indians, help each other out whenever you can." The Indian group is not the only international group that shares such a bonding throught the university. In the residence halls there is also such bonding with Chinese and Vietnamese students. Perhaps when there are fewer of your background, you go to great lenghts to keep the bond tight. ► Sandhya A.
