Aam is the Hindi word for mango. It is a word, a taste, a way of life that the NSLI-Y India 2015 group quickly adopted. We agreed to name this blog “Aam Sweet Aam” for a couple of reasons. One, we all have fallen in love with sweet zing that this fruit’s juices have imparted. It may sound cliche, but you really haven’t had a mango until you’ve had an Indian mango. 2. We have playfully substituted the word “Aam”, into an adage about “Home”…….And for the next few weeks the city of Pune, in the state of Maharashtra, in the country of India is our home. All of the challenges, the frustrations, the adventure, the friendships, the family and the sweetness. Just like home. We hope that you enjoy our reflections on this experience.
