Delivering a talk on 'Impact of Indian Culture on America, Goldberg said, "I find several youngsters from India keen on
knowing about what is happening in US. It is good to some extent, but copying Americans will lead them to nothing but a
state of materialism. Indian youths must us patience as asserted in Indian culture."
He further added a lot of people in US get inspired by the Indian culture, yoga and meditation practices developed here.
According to him, Americans have also come to adopt the idea of Veda. Citing the example of Swami Vivekananda's visit in
US, he said that the experience with Indian culture exposed them to the ideas and philosophies of Vivekananda. Goldberg
said that it was not that he just writes about India or Indian philosophy in his routine spirituality columns but Indian
tradition and spirituality gels up well with all the religions of the world. "Be it the followers of Jewish, Christianity,
Hinduism or any other religion, Indian spirituality has something for all," he said.
Meanwhile, during the function, vice-chancellor, MGKV, Dr Prithvish Nag said books connect Americans with India.
Director, MMM Malviya Institute of Hindi Journalism, MGKV, Omprakash Singh, former vice-chancellor, Kanpur University,
KB Pandey was also present on the occasion.

Dr. Arnold Michael Everest, chairman, president and CEO of Los Angeles, Calif.-based Residents Medical Group (left), has donated
$500,000 to the University of California at Davis School of Medicine Foundation to provide pathology research training to international
medical graduates. He is shown with Dr. Rajendra Ramsamooj (center), vice chairman of the School of Medicine Foundation; and

Dr. Arnold Michael Everest, the Indian American chairman, president and chief executive officer of Los Angeles, Calif.-
based Residents Medical Group, a specialist in the field of graduate medical education, has donated $500,000 to the
University of California at Davis School of Medicine Foundation for the university to launch a fund supporting pathology
training for Asian Indian and other international medical graduates.
Everest told India-West that many foreign medical schools, such as institutes in the Caribbean, provide "good basic
science," but their graduates don’t have much research experience in pathology. His bequest, he said, will support
international medical graduates by providing them with stipends so that they can “get their foot in the door” and gain the
research training they lack.
U.C.-Davis not only has a large Indian American student, teacher and medical school population, but the Indian American
community has also grown in the area around Davis, Calif., Everest pointed out. The university is also becoming known for
its “cutting-edge research,” he added.
