Host family, anybody?

Hi, we, at the Centre for the Study of Culture and Society, are currently playing host to a SEPHIS Ph.D. scholar from Tsinghua University, Beijing. She has just arrived in Bangalore and is going to be here, doing her research work in India for a year. This is her first trip to India and also her first trip outside of her country. She is currently staying in a hotel near Lalbagh but she is actively searching for alternative accommodations. One of the ideas that we had would be to find a host family for her in Bangalore, preferably not too far away from Jayanagar where CSCS is located.

We are not looking at a professional paying guest structure (though we do have a budget for her and she would be more than willing to pay for the costs and more) but a family who might be interested in playing host to her for at least the first month while she gets accustomed to the city and the lifestyle here. I thought it might be a good idea to just put a call here and see what happens.

If you think you might be interested in hosting a Chinese exchange student for a month (all expenses will be paid for), if you are looking for an unusual interaction and you have an extra room in your home to give you, this might be an interesting experience both for you and for her. Please reply here with contact details or mail them to me at itsnishant at gmail dot com and we will get back to you asap.

If you personally are not interested or cannot host her but you think somebody else might be, please do forward this message to them.
