My sisters boyffriend grew in US but he is from India and he is strongly attached to the Indian culture. I dont know much about it and they seem good together. I was wondering because he seems a little possessive at times and keeps telling her about how different she is from other women and how that suits his culture

Well... most Indian men do, and they spoil it for the rest of us. Not saying that the Indian culture is 'wrong' or 'bad', but it's too conservative, and needs to stay in India. Men (and women) who live in western countries but still stick to the Indian culture like leeches, are not really doing the Indian community any favours.
I'm an Indian man (not living in India anymore), and while I maintain my core individuality, I'm not 'attached' to the Indian culture in any way. If your sister's boyfriend tells her that she is 'too different from other women', ask her to dump his sorry, judgmental ass so that he could get an arranged marriage back in India with a woman who is 'not different'. Gosh, men like him give ALL Indian men living in western countries, a bad rep.1
