From The Expat Community
The food is spectacular. I’ve always travelled and understand how important food is to a culture. It also helps to understand people better. In India, the variety of cuisines and complex flavours does no disservice to the Indian people.
I travel a lot. It’s one of the reasons I came here, and besides, I work in the tourism industry! Though I spent the first six months in Delhi, I only spent four weekends in the city. I was exploring the country the rest of the time!
I found a job opportunity in India and without thinking twice, embraced it. Three weeks after the recruitment process, I was on the plane flying across the globe. The best decision I’ve ever made!
India produces 25,940 tonnes of plastic waste every day— plastic bags, cutleries, wrappers, and even toothbrushes, every piece taking about 40-1000 years to decompose! The Second Life Project is our small way to battle this and to be a positive impact in the community and encourage a conscious and responsible lifestyle.
