My son is in 2nd grade at TRIO. We have been pleased with the school so far. He is a day scholar and has only joined this year. The parent teacher meetings are very helpful and informative. They tell us where our child needs to improve and point out his best strengths. His teacher explained about their differentiated learning approach so that he learns at his own pace. What I liked most is that my son is developing an interest towards reading and public speaking. I would like to recommend it to the parents looking for individualized attention and balanced academics and sports.

You can use Boxme for temporary storage of your goods while moving in and around, or out of Bangalore. Storage starts at Rs 12/cubic foot per month only! Boxme also provides high grade plastic boxes (with seals to lock these boxes) to use for free to pack your stuff in.

Gregexpat posted HIGH ATM/$Transfer Charges on the India forum on April 11, 2015:
Talk about being beat with a stick.....10-15% transfering $ fm USofA or using an ATM in India really sucks. xoom.com & transferwise.com @ 1-3% are the best alternative Iv found. Please let me know if you have a better means of saving that travel buck! Thanx, Greg

A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Gurgaon, India
Culture-Shock-in-Gurgaon
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Stand tall, remember who you are and where you are from, be proud. It's ok if you don't understand what you are supposed to do in different situations, do your best and maybe laugh about it later. (Continue)
A reader replied most recently with:
I think perhaps you are living in the wrong place in Gurgaon- if you stay in one of the modern condo complexes....like DLF,Aralias, Laburnum,c etc etc then there is a lot of playing area for children including lawns and a pool. Lot of space to walk within the complex. I am surprised they are just touching your child like that on the road- its rare to see expats walking around in Gurgaon other than markets like Galleria or the malls which are very modern and have security. Maybe you are in the wrong part of Gurgaon...Old Gurgaon is not nice and can be avoided and expats rarely go there!
