Moving into another city is often very difficult especially for those who will be jumping into a totally different culture. The entry below is the story of how my friend was able to cope up with the changes of moving into Calhoun County.
India is one of the many countries in the world that have a very strong bond with its culture. People here do not find it easy to let of traditions and customs that have been with them since the time of their fathers and their fathers before them.
Indians are also known to be very attached to their land. It is but on rare occasions that they have the reason to leave their lands behind and move to another place that would be very foreign to their usual ways.
Indian women were also very traditional and they almost always end up marrying a fellow Indian. This is because a lot of them still aim to preserve the culture of the country.
This was the number one problem I had when I met Pria. She is Indian and I fell in love with her when I met her on a tour in India. I have been coming back to India ever since. I did not stop until I could prove myself worthy for Pria and for her family. It was difficult because I am not Indian, I am from Calhoun County.
However, with perseverance, I was able to make her fall in love with me too. Since then, she has helped me convince her parents that she can come to the county with me and live a new life.
Finally, I had her parents blessing and I was more than excited to bring her with me to the states. However, I still want her to feel that she is not far from her culture by bringing into our new home, a few of the essential Indian culture and tradition.
The biggest thing I could do for her is have our new home renovated in such a way that whoever sees it could immediately associate it with Indian culture. I wanted to make her feel that she is still in a India.
With this in mind, I contacted a roofing company. The company is not just known for roof repair and water damage repairs, but they are also able to work on remodeling roofs and turning it into designs and styles that their customers want to achieve. It is because of this skill that I went and contacted them.
I wanted the job done before my fiancé arrives from India in a few days. When I asked them if they could do it, I was pleased that they could. From the time they started the renovation, I was becoming more and more impressed with the team because I was able to see that they followed my request to the detail. From the color, to the length, and to the fine details, the roofers were able to follow through. This is a quality that is rare because most other roofing companies would apply their own touches to the design, telling the customers that theirs is a better design or theirs is a safer design. For this team however, they incorporated the safety and strength of the roof into the design I wanted, and not break the design in order to achieve safety and strength.
I am more than excited for Pria’s arrival. I know that I will be happier now that I have her in my life.
See, moving into a new place will not be so bad, especially if you do it in the name of love!
