  1. Now this is an amazing article. I never did the end of it figured until your picture came up with a smiley face. Beauty of it is, a light taste of humor and Persistence. I am impressed. You certainly look adjusted enough. Keep them coming. Neman.

  4. Beautifully written. I am also moving to west for higher education in the coming days and I’m also worried. we have to respect the cultural values & mores of the society.

  5. Fantastic piece ! You actually knocked off the ABCD bit, and relegated it to the background ( for the uninitiated, that is American Born Confused Desi, though that acronym could go for those oriented in that part of that world, not just born in the USA, like in the Bruce Springsteen song).
    Thumbs up for this !

    • Thank you so much! I am glad you liked it. I know a lot of kids face change when they move to new places. Even adults face adjustment issues, and in a way, reading other people’s experiences helps you overcome that, and face all the changes with strengthened resolve.
