Examples of Manchester in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Compartiendo una experiencia extraña de mis años de estudiante en Manchester, Inglaterra, durante la década de 1970. Acababa de llegar en Inglaterra desde la India, y fue en busca de un alojamiento, básicamente una habitación para alquilar. Yo siempre solía llamar a los terratenientes ingleses por phnoe primero, para asegurarse de que la habitación estaba disponible, y luego visitar esas direcciones, ubicadas kilómetros de distancia, al tomar el autobús o un tren. A mi llegada, siempre me dijeron que, o bien no había espacio para nada o que la habitación estaba alquilado. Después de una docena de tales experiencias frustrantes, se hizo evidente para mí que la habitación estaba siempre disponible - pero los terratenientes ingleses y patronas eran reacios a alquilar a alguien como yo, un indio o una persona no blanca. Curiosamente, la habitación estaba siempre disponible para mi voz en el teléfono, porque mi voz no podía revelar, ya sea mi color de piel, o de mi carrera o mi origen nacional. El misterio se disipó por lo tanto, y sin embargo, esa comprensión fue sin duda un duro despertar para el color verdadero de la sociedad Inglés. Fue mi primer encuentro con los prejuicios y la discriminación, y el momento más impactante que destruye la inocencia por completo - especialmente después de venir de una cultura noble y la mejor educación que se enorgullece de la igualdad. Yo siempre seguiré siendo agradecidos a inglaterra para la mejor educación que he recibido durante mi doctorado y el máster, tanto como por ejemplo la exposición hacia el lado oscuro del mundo real. Años más tarde, después de llegar a Estados Unidos, me di cuenta de que Estados Unidos es un nuevo mundo maravilloso conjunto que da la bienvenida a todos, y trata a todos con respeto y dignidad que merecen. Dios bendiga a América!

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I still remember two life-sized marble statues of two great scientists in the corridor of Manchester Town Hall, which I saw many years ago. One of them is of John Dalton, the founder of modern Chemistry and the Atomic Theory, while the second statue is of James Prescott Joule, the founder of modern Physics and the discoverer of the Law of Conservation of Energy. I consider myself very fortunate to be the student of the University of Manchester, the home of great scientists, Dalton and Joule. And most importantly, I am proud to be the recipient of Dalton Chemical Research Scholarship that enabled me to obtain my Ph.D. I am thankful to The University of Manchester as much as to John Dalton's Trust Foundation, for the greatest educational experience of my life.
