Indians love home-cooked food. We use some unique ingredients in our cuisines. Houston has several Indian grocery stores thanks to the large number of people of Indian origin staying here and it is easy to find the ingredients in these stores," said Chitnis. Many international students do enjoy campus life on UH, but many also like to keep in touch with their culture and heritage as a reminder of home. "I think it is very important for international students to keep in touch with their culture. The values and traditions with which they have been brought up is a big part of their identity, and it is vital for them to respect it," Chitnis said. Thanks to Houston's immense diversity, it is not difficult for international students to stay in contact with their heritage. Around 22 percent of Houston's metropolitan population is foreign-born. The Houston Foreign Consulate represents 96 countries, ranking third behind New York City and Los Angeles. Approximately 90 languages are spoken in Houston, making our city a veritable United Nations to students who choose their college education at the University of Houston. "Cricket, a sport similar to baseball is a big part of our heritage, and it is common to get together to watch the matches live on television," said Chitnis on how Indian students stay in touch with their culture. "Big banner Bollywood movies are regularly screened at theaters like AMC. It is very easy for us to catch up with the new releases. We also like to visit temples, mosques, cathedrals in and around Houston once in a while to take a break from the crazy everyday life. There are several events organized by other organizations like the India House, HMM etc. wherein Indian artists are invited to perform. We make it a point to attend these events. In fact, there is a wonderful event in July, right here on the UH campus by famous Sarod player Amjad Ali Khan and his sons Aman and Ayan." "It is very heartwarming to see our non-Indian friends take part in our celebrations and enjoy the festivities," said Chitnis. "The diversity on our campus has exposed me to several different cultures and traditions, and it has made me appreciate and celebrate the similarities and differences amongst us." Chitnis has enjoyed his time in Houston and at UH. "The last 2 years that I have spent in UH have been the most wonderful years of my life. If I could rewind my life, I'm sure I would love to relive these days over and over again," Chitnis said on his experiences. "Houston is a great place to live in. Houston may be more commercial, and not a real tourist attraction, but it's a place I've grown to love. Late night trips to the Starbucks at Post Oak will be a fond memory. Camping trips to Hunstsville State Park and early morning walks at the Memorial park with friends are etched in my mind. Houston is home now, a place which will forever remain very dear to me!"
