As hard as it is, try and find something different that interests you. A new hobby, maybe a book club, even look into going to a gym, anything that'll help you meet people.
As for work, just mind your own business and do what needs to get done. It takes a lot of time to find your place at a job. Not every job atmosphere will click right away.
Stay strong and remember why you're doing what you're doing. If you love it, then focus on that. And if in the long run you're not happy with it, then there are always other opportunities out there to look into :)

Not just overlooked, but looked down upon...When someone talks down to you, keep a straight face. Try not to take it personally. Learn from them and show them that you are willing to learn. My manager used to talk down to me, but once I showed them that I was capable of learning what they were asking of me, they began to show more respect. I hope things get better for you!!

I can certainly understand how you feel. You don't specifically mention it, but I would assume that added to what you've written, you're probably also fatigued.
I wonder if you might have a way to contact friends or family back in India? Skype is a fairly inexpensive way to call overseas, there may be others that I don't know about.
It seems to me as though you just need to be around other people, or at least be able to speak with others, even if only by phone. How about community centers or other places where people of your age are likely to gather? The library seems like it would be a good place for an educated person such as yourself - you're likely to meet other other people who, at the very least, like to read... and that's a start.
I work for a large insurance company that has off-shore consultants come in from India. They stay locally for a while and then go back to India and others come in to take their turn, I guess.
I don't really know all the details, but I think that it's common for them to share housing and we often see them going places as a group. I'm not sure if something like might be available to you, but it seems like it would be something worth investigating. I'm thinking that there might be other people that are in the same situation and would appreciate having you for a friend to talk to. Maybe people from India, but also just other students from anywhere who are feeling lonely. I promise that you're not the only one.
I know that it's easy for me to say, but keep your eye on your final goal. Being a healer is one of the most noble aspirations that a person can have. There are going to be good and bad people as we make our way though life; try to focus on and remember the good and forget the bad.
