It was an immense pleasure to be a part of Buddy System for Japanese students.
It was a very wonderful experience to meet the people from Japan and to interact with them
not only about the traditions, studies and cultures but also shared ideas, vision and dreams
from them. It was an utterly different experience for me to know how things work in Japan and
to find similarities and differences in Indian and Japan. I got a beautiful chance to make them
understand about India- Indian people, their way of working, their diversity and unity and of
course Indian culture.
In the beginning, it was very difficult to communicate with them in English but as time gone,
everything became normal and we started talking to each other.
I liked the way my buddy met me every time with a hug. I used to wait for her outside her class
at 6 p.m. She also waited for me and she used to call me if I didn’t meet her.
We used to share our whole day’s activities, what the teachers taught, how they liked, what
they didn’t like, have they taken lunch, how was it, etc.
We met them as strangers and departed them as our old friends.
