For better or for worse

Westernization has come to India in full force.  That includes obesity and diabetes.  Thanks to processed food and sugars and drinks and sweets and more sedentary lifestyles, Indians are getting chubby.  And exercise has come to India as well.  I took a long early Saturday morning walk on the beach road and was amazed at the activity; adults, men, women, kids, everyone was walking and exercising vigorously.  I enjoyed watching Indian soccer moms, kids boxing and running, and general fun.
