Satisha Jogaiah and his wife Latha Mangala from Pune, India, prepare a traditional south Indian dinner in their apartment on West Broadway. They came to Columbia on August 12th, 2008, after Jogaiah, a senior scientist of the Indian National Research Center for Grapes in Pune, was invited by the Institute of Continental Climate for Viticulture and Enology to conduct a two-year research on a certain kind of grape. Although they enjoy their time in the U.S., both of them miss their home and families, especially when something important like a death or a marriage happens. “We feel we should be there, sharing their joy and sorrow,” Jogaiah says. Having traditional food every day helps them cope with their homesickness.
