How Expat Families Can Retain Cultural Roots

India, where we are originally from, is a country with a variety and depth of culture. It would be truly hard to know all the traditions and festivals celebrated in India, but the majority of them are very much national celebrations.

Being expats in Dubai, we miss out on most of these. We do wish we were back home during those times, but I especially worry about Little Dude missing out on them.
