I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude and sincere thanks to Professor Zalilah Mohd Shariff for inviting me in UPM, Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences for delivering a talk on how culture is shaping the maternal and child health condition in India. It was wanderful experiences for me to deliver a lecture in a big auditorium in UPM and able to establish the need of cultural understanding in nutrition and health policiy in a nation. After my lecture, we discussed a lot for the future academic collaboration and then got the delicious taste of Traditional Cuisine like “Penang Assam Laksa”. Thanks to Dr Heng Yaw for accompaning me during that Lunch. Besides, my dream came true when I met Professor Khor Geok Lin, one of the so callled revolutionist in Malaysian Nutrition Planning, we spent nearly 2 hours and discussed over the current senario and future trends of food and nutrition research in south, south-east and Asia pacific countires. Lastly, I really thankful to my friend from Bangladesh Ashraful Bhai, who was serving as a research faculty in MAHSA University, Malaysia for providing me a very good hospitality. I truelly believe that Malaysian are so disciplined and cordial in nature in all respects. Only one wish I was not fulfil during my first visit that I was not able to meet with Professor Low, Editor in Chief of APJPH, Malaysia.
