Review:

"A must read for all Indian parents!” Indra Nooyi CEO Pepsi Co. --Indra Nooyi

"This is a guidebook showing Indian families how best to blend their cultural heritage with their new life in America. Beginning with a history of Indian immigration to the United States, Pandya (Pick a Pretty Indian Name for You rBaby) explains how the two cultures can coexist without conflict. The Indian values she describes are based on Hindu principles, mostly that "The world is our family"; that God resides in every being, seen and unseen. She offers commentary and instruction on a broad range of subjects that includes the Indian custom of treating men more favorably than women, naming children, and the etiquette of family meals and home life. A separate chapter addresses Hindu festivals. Pandya, who writes extensively on India and its culture, should know whereof she speaks: she's lived in America for the last 30 years and has raised two daughters here. A welcome addition to public libraries serving an Indian population.- " Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, PA --Library Journal Review

Even though this is a short book, the author comfortably explains Hinduism and parenting of bringing up multicultural children. The book offers guidance in a decent attitude to Indian Parents, living out of India to become easily acquainted with Indian values, culture, customs and spirituality. This helps Indian Parents to incorporate Indian culture and Hindu religion in daily life of kids living abroad. It helps Parents & Kids in tackling some misconceptions about India, its culture and Hindu Sanskaras. The book helps Parents to teach cultural values to their children & also helps in raising culturally balanced children who are both confident about their own heritage and respectful of other cultures. The author has significantly mentioned how to celebrate Indian festivals, select Indian dance & music for your children in other countries. The Indian Parenting Book is recommended to all the parents, not only Indian, to gain new perspective about child-upbringing and especially to Indian woman who are becoming moms for the first time. The book is one of the best resources to help parents to be the best they can be. --SchoolZIndia reivew by Veshwarya Gupta
