What we're about

This is a great place for Desi's or anyone who loves the Indian culture, to gather and build a Kommunity of friendship. We build this Kommunity with a fun twist, it now becomes a place to meet people who enjoy India through travel, food, art and ultimately through the making of enduring friendships across another culture. With that said, let us make this the Chai Culture remembered in our old neighborhoods back home, to become something we share here where we live now.

We as a team are committed to assimilate the Indian/Desi community into this new -found culture to fill our cities with the aroma of sparkling spices of smiles, creativity and fun relationships. Many Americans who love India--her people, masala, traditions, music, food, vibrant fabric colors, hospitality and art have woven these gifts into the fabric of their lives. So rather than flying back to India to create space for the ‘sipping Chai adventure of color, smiles and fun,’ let’s create this place here.

You all remember, the Chai shop is more than just sipping ‘tea’, it is the place where we can learn what is happening in the area, or where to get the best food for a quick bite outside the home. Sometimes it is the place we share about our jobs, and mostly our families and relationships. The Chai shop becomes a place of learning life’s hacks. Our meetups and Kommunity events will surround that Chai culture, but here in Silicon Valley. It might look like something as simple as how to clean these giant ovens, or bake some cookies or cakes, what about making a healthy fast meal, and then there are these new vegetables to try like Artichokes, Zucchini or even Asparagus.

We a have a Tech campus for children, family enrichment seminar for couples, Technology incubator and development group, visiting parents meetups, some fun with Bollywood dancing, musical evenings, Desi Chai shop (becomes our meeting point) and many other ways of sharing our adventure and discoveries with you! It all centers around good clean fun, where you can make a difference and be known as part of the Indian Desi & American Chai Kommunity. Two groups of people, two cultures reaching across the street to make life vibrant with color, flavorful foods, and lots of fun and smiles.

** We ask that you please be courteous to others. We are here to show kindness and love between our cultures. It is important that our members be respectful. We hope in our meetup's help others understand that we are all more alike than different. If there are any problems in the group please contact the organizer of the meetup directly. We reserve the right to decline anyone we feel is not in harmony with our vision of creating kindness and being respectful through our differences. We want to discourage you from joining our group for the main purpose to find dates or selling your goods and services. Sorry you will be asked to leave,if we find out otherwise.**
