    Shanti,

    Let me try my best and lets see how much justice i can do.

    Here we go

    Email from a mom who can see

    one whose life is full of happiness and deep as an ocean
    Venibhai's wife Vanita writes a letter via email
    Her son is in US, Rohitbhai patel is his name.

    Manubhai's son maniyo says that he meets Rohit everyday
    All thru the day he roams around in U-rail and reaches home very late
    his wife does baby-sitting and is tired by evening
    pizza & burger to eat - and pepsicola to drink

    Sat-sun they get holiday and then they was the dishes and clothes
    when they get little time they watch TV program
    Dollar life of yours, its hardship even if you have money.

    Here i have maids & cooks and lots of other luxuries
    we cook different cuisines & dishes and happiness is ultimate
    sat-sun we have get-togethers & picnics
    whenever we feel like we go to 5 star hotels and watch movies & plays
    Maybe you people have money - but our life is like gold

    Whenever you feel like you can return back our doors are always open
    here we burn the candles of humanity and lots of happiness
    No place like India -

    Shanti i am not sure if the right message is being passed in the translation. But have tried my best.

    Roopa.

    Thanks Shan,

    Your reply was even quicker.

    Yes the pasteur is always greener on the other side...but we hardly realise that.

    I am lucky my husband doesn't have that craze of going abroad, even though he has ample opportunities. If destiny takes us its a different matter...but we are enjoying ourselves here. Mera Bharat Mahaan :)

    Roopa.

    Hi,

    That was a great one... I liked it from the translation you have done... It is absolutely true... Though we may earn a lot in overseas... but the life in the hometown with the family & friends is different... Nothing to beat it....

    East or West.... Home is the Best....

    Hi Roopa
    Nice letter with real feelings.
    i am remembering a nursery poem let me share with u all -

    Ek Chidyia ke bacche char
    Ghar se nikle pankh pasar
    Poorab se paschim ko jate
    Utter se dakshin ko jate
    Dekh liya hamne Jag sara
    Apna Ghar hi sabs Achha!

    hi Roopa,
    It is very good and holds a lot of meaning in the present. When the children are abroad and old parents stay here back in India and find themselves alone to go to the doctor or get their bills paid and things like that. But then in the era of globalisation one cannot avoid going to different countries as the world they say have become one big global village. Probably its the price one has to pay for development

    Yes Veda, nothing like home town especially if you are coming from a small town i am sure we enjoy more here as everyone is so close knit and always ready to help each other and share their joys and sorrows.

    We have shifted from mumbai to pune and everyone is asking how are u adjusting but i and samir really like it here more than mumbai except that we miss our families as we come from a joint family.

    Very true Jaishree,

    Last year i went to US thrice the first time i was there for 7-8n weeks alone my husband was in India...even though we have lot of family members there and i was staying with them still at the end of the day i felt lost and daily i used to tell samir i wnat to come back i amfeeling home sick & i don't think i can do justice to the work for which i have come here.

    Twice he was with me and it was sort of a holiday for me so it was ok. But coming back to India was like home sweet home.

    Hi Uma,

    Indeed it has become one big global village. recently i have seen many people coming back to India. With the opportunities available here i don't think that people really need to go abroad...maybe its just a craze to go abroad...as we are in IT i can tell this...as every other person we interview for the opening in our orgn is more interested to know whether he can go abroad than the job profile that we are offering. We also come across employees who leave the orgn stating my parents are alone and they need me and the next thing we hear is another company has given him onsite opportunity and so he left us. and not the excuse that he has given the company.

    But then its personal choice.

    Roopa.
