Amy in India

amylou2.jpgI have green eyes, fair skin (even translucent in some places), a pointy chin, an eager simile and dark brown curly hair.

I am average weight and size and am 5.2.

I live in a country of beautiful people with darker hair and tanner skin than me. Here in India, I am part of a very small minority of foreigners.

I come from a place where I am a part of the majority. For most of my life, I enjoyed privlages of white America without realizing it.

I am a beloved daughter, grand-daughter, great-grand-daughter, sister, cousin, neice, great-neice, and friend.

I am a follower of Jesus.

I am passionate. I am creative. I am reflective. I am inquisitive.

I am a dreamer. I am an adventurer. I am a student. I am a friend.

My name is Amy.

  1. Hi Amy,
    I found you on the web…crazy! I too love Jesus, and have just accepted a job to go live in Chennai and work for an NGO there. I’d love to correspond with you if you have any suggestions, tips, etc…about the move from the US and life in India. I just returned from my first visit there…and am majorly jet-lagged at the moment. But, I’ll look forward to hearing from you. Blessings, Jill

  2. I have snaky brown eyes, tall height, brown skin and royal blood in vein with lost glory.

    I am average wight not heavy and not light.
    I live in the place which used to be desert but petro dollar not only changed the shape of people but places as well, but I do not belong neither to people nor to the land,

    I have a green passport holder of which are called shit-paki in USA but the blood running in my veins also do not belong neither to the land nor the faces who claim to be son of the soil
    I am a man who was migrated from the land of Rajhistan even when I was not formed; traveling in the blood of my forefathers i was born and raised among people like me
    I am one of the followers of the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him.

    The purpose of these possibly interesting lines is just to lighten the love of mine to the land of my forefathers. (this is the only definition of patriotism I looked up in the dictionary .) and the land of my forefathers is in the Pink City Jaipur.

    Hi, Amy, I liked the way you wrote, so I just tried to reflect being myself,
    I hope you would not mind have been copied by someone far from you in terms of land AND relation

    Hi Amy,
    I am Gurpreet and i my family is settled in Noida. I am currently in London and have been here for the last 1 year and 5 months.
    I was searching for something on the internet and just stumbled upon your blog. First things first, i must admit i really loved the way you write and that made me go through your two years of experience in India. Almost all the things that you have written are very true and i must admit(almost embarrassingly :)) that i do most of the things u wrote about indian men.
    I found mention of Golden temple in ur blog and was wondering if you have been to punjab(btw i am a sikh). If not, i would suggest you to go at least visit chandigarh and amritsar. People of punjab are famous for their hospitality and i am sure you will enjoy ur trip. When you visit the golden temple, i would suggest you to have ‘langar'(free food served at gurudwara). Langar is prepared every afternoon and nights in the grudwara where women and men chant holy verses and prepare food for the masses. I am sure you will love it. And you will not fall sick. šŸ™‚ (Read your experience about falling sick and going to a delhi hospital. Was shocked as hospitals in Noida are excellent, better than the one i had to go in london).
    If you want to have langar in delhi, you can visit Sisganj Gurudwara in Chandni Chowk or Gurudwara Bangla Saheb near Connaught Place.
    I also wanted to write something about my year and a half experience in London(which has been very mixed btw), but its almost 3 AM here and i better sleep if i have to reach my office on time tomorrow.
    Maybe sometime in the coming days.:)
    I have a profile on orkut(Gurpreet…Singh, watford UK) if you want to keep in touch.
    Cheers!
    Gurpreet

  4. Amy,

    I am so enjoying what you write. We continue as foreigners throughout our journey. You rest in places between locations, find sights among views, find listenings between hearings. I love your (international, global, universal) soul.

  5. Greetings Amy,

    I am glad that I found you on web. I really love to read your posts. Well you may not remember me, when I was in Delhi I met you and lot of friends through Vineyard. Hope you are doing well. I am working with Singtel (Singapore Telecom), transferred to Sydney recently. Here, we are able to gather few friends from Wellington and share about God. Please convey my regards to Rick & Ellen.
    I would love to hear from you. Wishing you a successful life with contentment and peace.

    Regards,
    Dinesh
