An Indian engineer discovers his personal and professional potential in the heart of Texas. An Indian in Cowboy Country is more than a fictional tale of an India-born engineer who overcomes cultural differences to succeed in America. It shares the challenges anyone might experience in life and in business and looks at important lessons learned along the way. Satish Sharma, an engineering graduate from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, is an immigrant who comes to America seeking a better life. From Bombay, India, where he was born and raised, to Houston, Texas, where he is called "an Indian in cowboy country," Sharma feels out of place. He faces personal, professional, and romantic challenges on both shores, but he eventually flourishes in the United States - the land of universal inclusion.
