This Latino learns public health here in India

 Nicholas Koralsky

Speaking to City Herald, Nicholas expressed his deep desire to work with the people in India who are deprived of the awareness regarding the harm caused by lack of knowledge over preventing spread of HIV virus.

He worked as a professor for strategies back in Argentina before coming to India to add another degree to his calibre. He had done his majors in human resources besides masters in communication and cultural creation.

Nicholas has the experience of working in many places, besides Amnesty International. He says India is a big experience. “I wanted to get in touch with the spiritual part of my instinct. The experience is something different from Argentina and amazing with different sorts of diversities. I wanted to change and open myself for something different,” he adds.

“I am in the state of cultural shock observing the way of people being formal here. It’s really hard to adjust here and as I am bit older, I may find it more difficult to get used to,” tells Nicholas.

“Back in Argentina, we are more collective in nature and we are not into community set up. Big family is something that is not happening into our country,” he added.
Nicholas who landed just a week ago in India tells that most of the people here seem to be friendly and helpful. Being Indian in India is easier than being a white skinner, he giggles and adds: “I find Indian food to spicy and I cannot really tolerate when those spicy items burn my tongue”.

He is very fond of colours used in India for clothing. It is a kind of magic, when people move with different styles of dresses.

“Bunus Aries, the capital city of Argentina is super developed as it is the collaboration of many cultures like that of French, Italian and Spanish. It’s a blend of many traditions. Although we like to be with our families, we are not,” he reveals.

Bonus Aries is the capital of meat as people eat lots of meat. Meat is consumed in larger quantity. We have a drink called “mate” which is similar to that of coffee and the uniqueness lies in the style of drinking “mate,” he adds.

Nicholas is very much surprised with the idea of difference between males and females in India as  back in Argentina both are treated as equals.

The role of state in sponsoring the citizens’ life is wonderful. Everything is subsidised in Argentina right from education to health and business. Lots of opportunities, he added.

“We do respect our parents and it is more of friendship clubbed with respect. I was astonished with the way of family system here. We need private life to develop ourselves, he said.

Nicholas recently attended “Balakalakar” programme organized by AIESEC and he was happy to be with the children as he could connect to them.
