Do you live in your MOTHER LAND (the country to which you basically belong to)?

INDIA is my mother land, the place where I was born and brought up. Now, I have moved to Iowa, in US because my husband works here. But, still I have dreams of going back to India and living there. I have a nostalgic feeling towards living in my mother land. Do you live in the country where you are basically from? If not, do you have dreams about going back to your mother land?

There are a lot of international marriage in china these days. I heard about successful ones, which among others need mutual respect to cultures and tide over difficulties with concerted efforts. The process of understanding and adapting to cuture is a long one. Homesick is a different issue, which will accompany you however successful you are. There will be one day when India provides good opportunity for your husband's career. Then you might think of residence in both places at intervals. That will be fair, isn't it?

Yes, of course Zhuhuifen. Indian economy is growing in a very good way and I hope there will be a day when my husband and me can find a good career in India. That will be nice. Thanks for the response. Happy mylotting.

I am from Ohio in the US but I currently live in Egypt (for the past 3 years). I have also lived in Qatar. For me I prefer living in the US any day over these two countries. I am so glad to have gotten a chance to see other parts of the world...but the whole time I have been longing for my country...nothing excites me more than when I travel back to the US. The funny thing is before I moved, I could not wait to live somewhere other than Ohio...now it's all I think about. I think it is so hard to give up the love of your home country. India and Iowa are pretty much opposites, so I could see why you miss your country. I hope you find your time in the US more pleasing and get a chance to travel around to all the exciting places in the US.

Yes Chaitra, I agree with you. It is great happiness to be in your motherland. Going around the world and seeing different places is good, but whenever I think of a permanent residence.....the nice times I spend in INDIA rushes to my mind and says... COME BACK... I am waiting for you. I love my motherland, INDIA.

I am from India and I am living in India.I think people like you have great exposures unlike us.It is a good chance for you to travel to distant places,I think.But I can understand your feelings of staying right away from your family and relations.Don't lose heart and look things in the positive way.Engage yourself in other activities and feel free there.Cheers!

Yes, it is good change to travel and be in distance places, but I feel that 'being in motherland' is differnt from 'being in a foreign country'. The happiness and freedom you feel in your motherland and with your country men is differnt from being in a foreign country. I am trying to see things in a postive way and try to adjust to the situation. I have dreams about going back to INDIA. The country I like most!

I'm living in my home country, but I'm dying to get out! . I'd honestly just like to see the world, and that's what I dream of.

Hi Maezee! It is a good experience to go around the world and see differnt places. But, when you think of a permanent residence, which place will you choose? Your motherland? Or any one of the nice place you have visited during your world tour? I am curious...

You responded to a discussion of mine and I thought I would return the favor. Luck has it that your discussion fits into a question you asked on mine "where are you from?" is what you asked. I responded there, but hope you don't mind me responding again on your discussion. I live in the USA. To answer your discussion, yes it's my mother land and I've lived here my whole life. At one point I wanted to move away but that is because I thought I was in love with a boy from another country. I'm glad I stayed because I found the love of my life, my fiance, here in America. I appreciate the response to me on my discussion and I've commented back. I hope that you enjoy your time mylotting. I also hope that one day you can move back to India.
