Author Aarti Kelshikar recently had a book event at the American School Mumbai
and is planning a similar one in Delhi.

"How India Works: Making Sense of a Complex Corporate Culture" fleshes out the cultural nuances that impact the way Indians work and should be an interesting
read for expats working in India and for Indians who have repatriated. This book
is available on Amazon India, Amazon International and Indian Bookstores.

From Aparna Mohan Dhawan (AES Parent): It is increasingly accepted that to work successfully across cultures, it is im-
portant to understand the drivers and the complexities of the respective culture. The book 'How India Works: Making Sense
of a Complex Corporate Culture' facilitates this understanding. Published by HarperCollins, the book fleshes out the cultural nuances that impact the way Indians work. Based on inter-
views with Indians and expatriates from 13 countries who
have lived and worked in India, How India Works offers
outsider and insider perspectives on the psyche of the Indian
in the workplace.

APRIL 1966
THIS issue is about women. With the press all over the
world eagerly writing about India's new Prime Minister,
we decided to reprint an interview with Indira Gandhi
which is perhaps more significant today than when it was published in News Circle in November, 1961. "History has seldom left her alone'' Barbara Lazarsky wrote five years
ago and goes on to give perceptive insight into the per-
sonality of the lonely, remarkable woman who so recently assumed one of the highest positions held by a woman in modern times.

MARCH 1966
In this issue Mrs. Bowles describes with affectionate understanding her experiences as the only foreign guest
on Shastriji’s funeral train. It is a stirring story and News Circle is very proud to have been' given the honor of publishing this poignant account of a sadly memorable journey.

Paul Dominguez and I met 40+ years ago at the
American Embassy School in New Delhi, India. We
became instant friends!

We saw each other at our mini reunion in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2012 (Thank you again, Vicki). We really didn’t have the opportunity to have a one-on-
one conversation. This past weekend he was here in
Las Vegas. He is still such a genuine and honest man, wonderful human being
and one of my besties! Yes...hours of meaningful and in-depth conversation.
Love you Paul!

We have another follow-up success story on Valedictorian Shreyas Rajesh,
AES Class of 2018. We reported the end of July about his work towards the
"Making a Difference" (MAD) program and being selected to co-present
his vision and focus amongst language specialists from around the world.
Read more from Dr. Mary Catherine Frazier (Head of H.S. EAL)

After six months of his graduation, our AES/MAD (Make A Difference) volunteer, Shreyas Rajesh, made our school
motto become a resonating reality for New York TESOL professionals. Our student was a shining star of inspiration.
The favorite quote, during our post-presentation reflection,
came from Shreyas, "Wow Dr Frazier, I have never had any-
one say I inspired them!" After the presentation, I had a
woman tell me she now has a plan for what to do in her own country of destitution and poverty, Eritrea, in the Horn of
Africa, bordered by Sudan. Read more

You may recall a few months ago – the end of June – AES Class of 2016
alumni, Arjun Pillai Hausner, entered this year's National Science Foundation
Art Competition.

CONGRATULATIONS, Arjun, for being selected as the "People’s Choice
Winner." He used marbles to illustrate a force we run across everyday – gravity.

It's fun to look at this program book and flash back on all the swim meets we either participated in or attended as a spectator.
It is also fun to see the names again of some AIS swimmers who represented us so well!

It was another wonderful picnic today! Thank you Anne and Tim Kerr for hosting
it at your beautiful countryside home. Although the weather cooled down quite a
bit, we couldn't have asked for a better afternoon.
In addition, Karen McPherson Keen (Class of 1974) surprised us each with a bag filled with Indian goodies; and Anne Weathersby (Class of 1965) demonstrated
how her drone works. As always, there were great conversations, laughing, and
tons of food and drinks.
Malcolm Garg (Class of 1975) was our only male alumni so we had fun with this photo! Thank you again, Anne and Tim. As always, we leave anxious for the next picnic.
