What a lovely story, with an important lesson attached.

I'm not sure of your rendering of the Indian accent--it just didn't seem quite right to me in a few places.

I really like your title, too! Nice writing.
Good lesson. The "eeese" sounded like an African accent to me. I didn't hear anyone in South India pronounce their words like that. Imagine if we all were this hospitable!

A good message about reaching out and getting to know others.

The transliterated spelling of the woman's name would be Shanti with an i not an e.

I also liked the title of this piece.
