1. The title of the article, How India Becomes America, describes the idea of globalization because for India adopted some of the same lifestyles, customs, and ideas as American culture over the past years.

What the author means by that statement is that at first glance of the American system of success it seems easy, but then as you look deep into what you need as well as taking advantage of other things. You see in the movies how many people in the movies come to America because it is free and they hear so many stories of success. But in reality, they get here and they fail because they don’t know how to actually achieve it all. 4. Globalization can be great for a society, but it can also hurt the society. It can be great and help the society because it can help advance the technology. For example Americans have devised straws that can instantly purify water, so they give this to many people n Africa. But globalization could also be bad because it can take away from cultural traditions. Part 2 1. The 10th Parallel is a ring 700 hundred miles north of the equator. It splits many of the countries in Africa in half horizontality. Culturally it is extremely different because in Africa, above the 10th Parallel is mostly Muslim, and southern to the line is mostly Christian. This causes much conflict between the two areas. 2.

Many people come to America with the dream of finding a good job and providing a better future for themselves and their family. But they don’t think of all the hardships they’ll be facing. Everything is completely different from where they came from. For instance, in the book they moved to Chicago from Lithuania and they struggled to live here because everything was so different from what they know, and that’s why they find it so difficult to be successful. The way they envisioned America to be was not the reality of
Massoon explains that the Indians were “‘paralyzed and petrified with fear,’” which is made clear in Sudershan Singh pondering, “‘Why they kill us?... We are Americans, too,’” and in an unnamed Indian shop owner explaining that, “‘We [just] want to make America beautiful. We don't want to spoil it. America is a land of chances… That’s why everybody is here,’” (Marriott, 1987).
Historians who practice historiography agree that the writings from the beginning of what is now known as the United States of America can be translated various ways. In James H. Merrell’s “The Indians’ New World,” the initial encounters and relationships between various Native American tribes and Europeans and their African American slaves are explained; based on Merrell’s argument that after the arrival of Europeans to North America in 1492, not only would the Europeans’ lives drastically change, but a new world would be created for the Native Americans’ as their communities and lifestyles slowly intertwined for better or worse. Examples of these changes include: “deadly bacteria, material riches, and [invading] alien people.” (Merrell 53)
In contrast, source three suggests that globalization is a force for good in the world because it leads to economic growth and employment opportunities for people in third world countries. Source two presents varying perspectives on this questions with developing nations saying that globalization is an outstanding force for good and wealthier countries saying it is overall a bad thing. This is ironic because developing countries are often on the losing end of globalization while wealthier countries reap most of the rewards. The speaker of source three, Micheal Walker, would counter what the speaker in source one is suggesting about globalization by saying employing people for very little money is actually helping them survive. He would use the survey in source two to support this claim as it appears that people from less wealthy countries, who are often exploited as a result of globalization support
India to America: Trials and Tribulations of Indian Americans Overview For my field trip report, I chose to explore the vast amount of quality information on display at the Smithsonian Institute. Since the physical institute was logistical impossible to visit, I took advantage of their online exhibits. After spending a few hours exploring the wide variety of information available at my finger tips, I discovered an exhibit called, “Beyond Bollywood.” This exhibit highlights and outlines the struggles and successes of the first people of the Indian origin to set foot on what is the modern day United States of America.
Bharati comes to America with her arms open wide, willing to adjust her customs and conducts in order to assimilate to her new country. She celebrates change and views it as a positive aspect in her life. The author says, “America spoke to me - I married it - I embraced the demotion from expatriate aristocrat to immigrant nobody,” meaning that to Bharati, America is not just a country. It symbolizes opportunity and freedom, which she desires most. (Mukherjee 282).
Bharati and Mira both have been living in the U.S. for 35 years and America is changing the way Bharati views her Indian culture and the world. She feels like she can express herself and be herself, Mira still stays true to her Indian culture. Mira told Bharati “she hopes to go home to India when she retires” (Mukherjee 70) Mira married an Indian man they had to get their labor certifications her sister Bharati married a man outside her ethnic culture he was a Canadian man.

In the essay “Two Ways to Belong in America,” from 50 essays, Bharati Mukherjee contrasts the different views of the United States from two Indian sisters. The author distinguishes her American lifestyle to her sister’s traditional Indian lifestyle. Both sisters grew up in Calcutta, India, moved to America in search of education and work. Bharati adjusts to the American society very quickly, where her sister Mira clings to her Indian traditions more strongly. Despite both sisters living in America, only Bharati is an American citizen, while her sister Mira is not.
(Collins, 2015) But then continues with some points that seem more valid to me, "The general complaint about globalization is that it has made the rich richer while making the non-rich poorer"(Collins, 2015) and "Globalization is deindustrializing America as we continue to outsource both manufacturing blue collar and white collar jobs. "(Collins, 2015) Because we are in a whirlwind of globalization we loosing jobs ourselves.
Margaret Mead 's Analysis of Success "For many Americans, the concept of success is a source of confusion. " This is the opening line to Margaret Mead 's views of success from The Egalitarian Error.

This raises a good point is some ways because globalization does harm humans in many way such as losing jobs due to outsourcing and the people who get the outsourced jobs are put into horrible working conditions and underpaid without benefits. But it also helps in some ways with trade and communication strengthening the relations of countries. I do agree with the source that globalization harms many people but not quite to the extent that the author goes to, I think that
