Social Vaccum

Posted: June 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

Its been damn 15 years I spent in this country, and still not having developed a sense of belonging to this place invokes a feeling that cant be described. 15 long years in this country and the fear of repatriation to India makes it worse. The inherent luxuries this country has given, have also in a way spoiled us a lot making the repatriation more difficult. Once in Dammam I read a sign board, Alien Housing referring to expat housing.

Expats here and when we go to India, we are strangers there too. Ajaanib hina wa Ajaanib Huna, expats here and expats there.
….. and people think we are sheikhs…..in Saudi Arabia.
