So You’re Far, Far From Home…

Coming from another country? We’ve prepared some information that could be useful for our two major groups of foreign students:

Information for Students from the Indian Subcontinent

Food, Videos from India
Cosmos International
770 Farmington Avenue, West Hartford

Time Saver International Store
1549 Main Street, East Hartford

Their video collection’s prints are of better quality than Cosmos. Also, the owner arranges to bring Hindi blockbuster movies to the big screen at Enfield Cinema. Call the store to get onto a mailing list.

Jackson Heights (35th Avenue 75th Street) in Queens, New York is the ultimate bazaar for anything and everything Indian – food, clothes, jewelry and restaurants.

For the homesick, WWUH (91.3 FM) broadcasts an hour and half program (7:30 to 9 p.m.) every Friday called Gitanjali. It features hindi songs, Indian classical music and interviews.
