    I've seen them around in NYC. As any ethnic community in America, the older generation speaks the language and continues the customs, while the younger generation tries to find a role or be part of Americans. Bhukarian teenagers in high schools try to emulate Hispanics because they look alike. The haircuts, the closing, the mannerisms, the choice of music like hip hop and rap, their English accents sound similar to Latinos in the Bronx. With in two generations, their community will shrink significantly and their traditional customs and language will start to disappear. Look at the Irish, Polish, Italian, Asian communities today. Look at the American Jews who came from Poland or Russia in early 20th century--ALL they have now is their ethnic last names but they didn't save any customs or language.
