Namaste!

My blog was initially written for my friends and relatives during my Exchange program / Erasmus in India. More than 200 posts later, this blog provides a mix of advices, information, pictures and personal experiences...


My readership is a lot more diverse than expected. While I was counting on tourists, expatriates and exchange students willing to learn more about India, I was positively surprised by the amount of comments left on my blog by Indians/locals. In addition, this blog gave me the opportunity to join the Belgian delegation in Bangalore.

Don't hesitate to comment!

Coucou miss! Fait plaisir que tu sois de retour en Belgique... L'Inde pétille encore dans tes yeux.

Hiren Shah said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I will go in detail later on your writeups when I have the time.I have been a student of International management insitute and would love to get an insight into how IIMs function.

There are some things that only work experience can teach. Just as pace bowlers in cricket gradually concentrate on swing rather than pace, it is quality that matters. I wonder how you manage so many blogs.

Karthy said...

thanks for your comment in my photoblog

coucou miss! faut que tu trouves un moyen de promouvoir ton blog! penses a tout ces pooovres voyageurs qui seront déboussolés si ils n ont pas l'occasion de lire ton blog avant le départ... ;o) plus sérieusement, t'as franchement fait du bon boulot et il y en a pour tout les gouts.

Pascal said...

waouw! i wish i had ur patience! i gave up on my blog... long ago! oups, je repasse au français... je trouve plus mes mots. honnetement, ton blog me donne envie de partir en Inde. Malgré les tres nombreux conseils... que je suivrai bien sur à la lettre. ;o)

vivek said...

Hey Elise! How is life back in Belgium? Great insights on our wonderful country. You wud deserve to be an Indian ;o) Missing you.

Emilie said...

Recoucou! J'en connais un qui doit être très malheureux de t'avoir (temporairement) perdu! J'ai vu sa photo sr ton (magnifique, grandissime, génial ;o) ) blog... Vs gèrez cmt?

Olivier said...

hey girl! Dreaming to go back? ;o) I m glad u love(d) the country. I personally didn't like it. I was maybe too young when i went there and didnt adapt to it. Should i give it one more try?

I love ur enthusiasm! But is it really all abt India? Dont u think that u wud have enjoyed ur exchange anyway? In every single country of the world? U obviously love to travel and r highly flexible. Think abt it before making any long-term plans...in India.

pravesh said...

Hi Eliz! u shud make a blog abt Belgium for us! Sometimes ur advices seem a bit odd to me. i guess it s because i was born here and know the country well enough. we dont need to be so careful abt things ;o)anyway, great blog! keep writing and dont forget to start a new one abt belgium. I dont want to be completely lost when i come to visit u...

Sarah said...

Hi girlette! a lire ton blog, t'as adoré! faudra que tu m'emmenes avec toi pr ton prochain voyage! tu m'as presque convaincu qu'apres tt les ptites bêtes, les maladies... ce n'est qu'un détail et que ca ne doit pas etre un frein au voyage. tiens moi au courant...

julien said...

ca m'a fait super plaisir de recevoir ton mail. et je confirme j'ai passé le premier round d'interviews! ;o) au fait, tu ne m avais jms donné ton adresse de blog auparavant. erreur! du beau pti blog bien sympa et informationnel. je regrette juste que le bloc de texte a droite foute le camp en bas...

Fanny said...

Ca me fait plaisir d'entrer en contact avec toi, je te l'ai dit, ton blog m'a impressionnée, et je me suis un peu reconnue en ce qui
concerne ma relation avec mon ami indien. Ce serait sympa qu'on se voit un de ces jours sur Bangalore.

Patrick said...

eh ben je n'aurai qu'une seule phrase en lisant ton bloc Elise : je t'envie...tous ces voyages, ces découvertes, c'est maintenant qu'il faut les faire...

tu auras bcp de mal a revenir en Belgique j'ai l'impression!
allez éclate toi bien et a la prochaine

dorothée said...

j'avoue que j'ai été impressionnée: quel travail! il est vraiment trés bien fait et
trés complet!j'ai bien pris note de tous ces conseils. en fait, je pars demain matin pour l'Inde, j arrive à Bombay et je pense prendre un train pour chennai et ensuite remonter la côte pour retourner à bombay, j ai un
mois pour ca. mon départ est donc demain matin et là je commence quand même à "stresser" un peu...je pars seule:es-ce que tu penses que ca craint? je me dis que non mais on sait jamais!si tu pouvais me dire ce que tu en
penses ou s'il y a certains trucs à faire ou pas..(je sais qu il faut faire gaffe au niveau des vêtements mais aprés...).
Je te dis un grand merci d'avance!

erasmus-in-india said...

PAS DE PANIQUE! Tout se passera bien... je dois qd même avouer que mumbai est la seule ville que je n ai pas aimé en inde. Simple raison: on est arrivé au mois d'août. Il y avait manifestement des rassemblements de fanatiques anti-britanniques (extension à tous les blancs). Donc, mal tombé...

Des conseils? Si tu as bien lu mon blog, tu dois déjà tout savoir ;o)

-précautions classiques pr l'eau et les aliments non cuits
-essaye d'avoir l air sure de toi.
-apprend qq mots d'hindi.
-regardent les gens ds les yeux lorsqu'ils te parlent a toi, pas lorsqu'ils parlent a ton portefeuille. Donc ne te retourne pas lorsqu'on t'appelle pour te vendre un produit ou pour mendier. Ce n’est pas évident au début. Surtout lorsqu'un jeune enfant s'accroche a toi pr obtenir qq pièces. Persiste! Ne te retourne pas, ne le regarde pas.

--> Ne sois pas parano et profite pleinement de ton voyage!

I came across your blog on Internet. Fantastic creation! I find myself short of adjectives to appreciate your blog. Really, it is an awesome description of India that you've put up. Great going! How is life at IIMB? I also aspire to do my MBA from some IIM someday. It is a dream. Earlier I was a undergraduate at IIT Roorkee.
I hope all your dreams come true. Wish you a great future.

Pranay Rao said...

Hi elsie,
This is with reference to the comment you made on my blog which is very relevant in that we can never get an international experience until we provide international exposure. Probably accepting GMAT scores at the IIMs would be a good idea.
I think the main problem here is the sheer number of people who try to get in through CAT. There would be no way to compare CAT n GMAT since their scoring (CATs based on percentile n is a yearly affair while GMAT is a score valid for a longer period(5 years i thnk)) which is why the difficulty.
Also unlike private bschools, the IIMS don't have professionals running their recruitment/placements n all, just faculty n bureaucracy. They really don't try and probably feel that they don't need to attract students.
Probably one solution could be making CAT an international affair. International exchange is one right step in this regard, but isn't enuff.
I guess my blog reflects my views on reservation, it will be a pity if this rule ever comes into force.
Best wishes for your life in India n do drop in if you visit Mumbai.

Regards,
Pranay

You DO blog big time. Counted 15 of them on your profile. India's crazy and we all share a love-hate relationship with her.

GuNs said...

[:-D]
I did so much research on my North India trip, that I am almost an expert on the limited places that I went to. If you need any help in planning your itinerary, drop me a line. BTW, read my itinerary on my blog. Its a little run-run, scram-scram but thats how I like it - on the move !

Couldn't possibly join you. Spent all that I earned in the little time I've been working on the trip and buying the Panasonic Lumix FZ-20 a week prior to that. [:.-(]

Yeah, I can, though promise you a free-of-charge trip around Pune if you make it here.

LOL, enjoy your life and keep writing !

erasmus-in-india said...

This blog is my main blog... the other ones simply link to this one...

Have been quite busy these days which would explain why I dont regularly publish new posts. What's more, I dont always publish in chronological order to keep some coherence (real chronological order of events, updates on some posts, etc). In other words, there might be new posts a bit everywhere on the blog.

Anyway, I ll catch up soon...

Caroline said...

Bonjour,

je suis tombée par hasard sur ton blog et souhaitant partir bientot en Inde, j'ai lu tes conseils et expériences avec attention...

parfois, je me demandais quelle genre de personne tu pouvais bien être pour surmonter tout ça. N'as tu jamais eu peur ou été déstabilisée? te retrouver seule en plein milieu de la nuit dans une gare indienne au milieu de nulle part, rencontrer en personne des gens que tu avais rencontré sur internet, aller dans des familles... Seule et en tant que fille...

Perso, je partirai avec des amis et le séjour sera plutot du type touristique... je pense que l'adaption au pays sera déjà difficile en tant que telle pour ne pas en plus m'aventurer dans l'inconnu.

Helloooooooooooo! Just dropping a few words on your great blog... was really surprised to see that you could use html code ;o) remember that C++ thing with which u were stuggling a few years back... keep it up! btw do u plan to have a goodbye party before going back to India?

erasmus-in-india said...

Hmmm... well, the basic template of this blog was found on blogger. But true, I ve made quite a few little changes... Would love to learn more abt HTML code (and any other programming language) but still need to find a really patient teacher.

Bonjour,

Nous allons ouvrir une boulangerie française à Bangalore d'ici le mois de Novembre, je me charge de l'étude de marché concernant les expatriés.

Je cherche à rencontrer le maximum de français et d'européens afin de cibler au mieux leurs goûts et attentes concernant les produits liés à la boulangerie.

Peut être aurais tu des contacts sur Bangalore ou toi même voudrais tu entrer en contact avec moi afin d'en discuter (ne t'inquiète pas ce ne sera pas du harcèlement, il y aura même peut être de la dégustation de croissants !) ?

Voici mon adresse mail : baradeladeline@yahoo.fr (nous vivons bien évidemment à Bangalore)

Merci

GuNs said...

You WONT be blogging anymore? Never again? That seems like a major step. Maybe you will take away a little part of life away from your readers who have come to know you from your blog and have gladly assimilated both into their lives in some way or the other.

If you do intend to stop blogging altogether, do write a goodbye post and tell us all where you are and what you are doing now.

Hey Elise,

nice to see that ur back to modifying ur blog.

i stumbled across ur blog sometime in april 2007, and read almost all ur posts..i must say u've got a flair for writing, so do not chuck the idea of blogging altogether...i mean all it takes is justa post once in a while...

I commented on ur blog a few times via my blogger id, so when i saw hits from belgium.

I liked the post about desi and the pardesi ....and your takes on India..u did a good job..

And yeah MBA education in india is very good, but still a lot bookish .GMAT is a much better option for people who'd like a global perspective on things....

and yeah i've added you to my blogroll...

Keep up the goodwork...

Elise,

Just hooked on your blog. I moved to LA when I was 8 but my love for India never ceased. I've visited frequently and each time I come back, all I can think of is that place...24/7. It takes a while to get it out of your system and even then it never really does. I first read your posts a few years back and followed your journey for a few months. I needed to satisfy "India" craving this afternoon so I came back for more- I'm addicted - it's ridiculous. Maybe it's your spirit, or India's...or both, over the internet?? Looks like you've slowed down recently with blogging. Are you still in India?

The reason why I visit your blog is because I spent 10 months in India and fell in love with the people there, so reading your blog helps me re-live that. And actually I took some photographs while I was there to try and capture the spirit of India and thought I would share with you in case you recognise the places or share the same experience of 'indian life' :-) http://matthieu.net/photography

Hey,

I'm about to go to India, Mumbai, for a 3 months internship. I, however, do not know anything about this place (apart from the obvious Wiki-stuff), don't know anybody or anything (apart from the company's people which I have never met either).

Could you, perhaps, give me some European student organisations or cafés or something where it would be possible for me to make friends more easily?

Thank you,

Hello there, what an interesting, colourful and beautiful blog u wrote! Im also Belgian and Im looking to exchange friendship with indians living in Belgium, or Belgians who have developped a passion and intrest for India. Ik zou graag wat meer Belgen leren kennen die een passie voor India hebben, met een Indier samen zijn, er geweest zijn, de cultuur en taal machtig zijn, of in india geboren maar verder in belgie opgegroeid. Myself im Lizzy, 27 years old, and in a relationship with an indian guy for 2 years now, India kind of captured me and enchanted me, it wont let me go If you're interested, feel free to reply! Greetz Lizzy

Dear India Freak,

I am currently publishing an Expatriate only magazine which features small anecdotal/life and time account of foreign nationals in India. I wish to extend an invitation to you to write with us.

I circulate this magazine all over India through selective channels (of ex-pats) and wish to create as many cross connections in the country with like-minded people as possible. The response in most foreign national communities has been huge, with most associations demanding more prints.

Please let me know what you think and I am happy to send you a more formal invitation. I can email you a PDF copy(ies) for our October & November edition which we release end of this month. Its for free - I don't charge the readers anything :)

On a side note, I am looking out for expatriates who run or work with NGOs here or for that matter are running their own entrepreneurial setups so as to give them free promotion as well as create an encouraging platform for others to give India a try :) If you know of any such enterprising souls, feel free to put them in touch with me - country no bar!

Best Wishes,
Shikha
