We came back home after our visit to Atlanta,Washington DC and California the trip was our second trip and this made us more familiar with the pride and love of this country in the minds of the young in INDIA.Reading the news paper reading, being my habit I found that the politics in USA is no different from India.What I liked was the fast work in govt offices.My daughter's Driving License was renewed in 10 minutes.Is it possible here even in highly computerized RTO's office.No chance,you have to pay the touts.Go through them only.There is fixed tariff for everything.
The other factor that I heard was,the work culture which is unlike in India a merit oriented and not"YES SIR" culture.Even the CEO is called by his name.

My wife and myself enjoyed our stay at Atlanta a historically great city,where my daughter and her husband stayed.Wherever we went it was a sight to behold you and stand there looking at what a city should look like.A minimum of 2 months stay only will enable you to have a good picture of the place.My only eyesore was the Homeless people in the street.When the city has the world's largest Airport,Flyover's over Flyover's and above it again Flyover's,with 6 lane traffic,is it difficult to have home for the homeless.Atlanta is great with CNN world center and countless sights which kept me in amazement and wonder,this city should not have people walking around with placards"Homeless" please help.
