How is the US so different from India? One of the first things that strikes a first time migrant is how seamlessly life transitions from one place to another within the country. Whether one shifts cities or travels a lot, the favorite burgers / donuts / coffee / steak is always there, in fact everywhere. Supermarkets work in exactly the same way, stock almost the same product range and staff greets and deals with the same words everywhere! Wow. Cut to India.
