I was homesick after I left my home country of Canada, but it only lasted about a year. Now, I still want to go back when things are going badly here. When we have no running water or I have a fight with my husband, I just want to go back! I think it helps to focus on the good things around you. What do you like about delhi? What about it is better than assam? Why did you come here in the first place, was it for a good reason? If so, try to remember that. Also, if you can stay in touch with family back home, it really helps.

thanks for the coment! i came to delhi for pursuing my masters in linguistics. i completed the course in 2004 and since then working in the private sector. in delhi, have got everything-right from friends to a cosmopolitan lifestyle. but to tell u the truth, i'm not happy at all. afterall my hometown ( guwahati, assam ) is far better than delhi. it may notbe that advanced like delhi, but all of y family members sty there. sometimes i feel like a gypsy here. i desperately want to go back to my place and do something for my parents. i know they will feel happy if i return. i 'm brooding over that these days.

nope i'm not, i'm at home with my family right now but i already experience that feeling for the past 3yrs. leaving far away for 6mos. and i hate that to remember coz that was my first to be apart from my family for work. My advise is just think positve and always ask for God's guidance..
