This is my final installment on India, in terms of batches of photos, I might however create random posts based on a photo or two in the near future. All the pictures were captured by my other half during his recent trip, do read mumbai city and memorable india to view my earlier stacks of photos. I have chosen photos taken around various villages and the city of Surat in the state of Gujarat this time. This was where my hubby had stayed mainly, back in the village of his ancestors in Gujarat. This trip has been a real eye opener for him. He realised how fortunate he’s been, for had his grandparents not migrated to Africa then England he would not be where he is now, having been highly educated and leading a fairly comfortable life. He is where he is at present through the sacrifice and hard work of his forefathers, there are no two ways about it. And for that he is truly grateful to them, Alhamdulillah.
There are many reasons why people migrate to other parts of the world; to escape poverty, for marriage, religious, education or work purposes. In my opinion, the whole world was created by God for us to explore and benefit from. As long as we work hard to earn an honest living and contribute to the society we live in, it does not really matter where we end up in as long as we are happy and content. Having said that, I don’t think anyone can forget their homeland ever, no matter where they migrate to afterwards. Enough said, do browse my photos for an insight into India through my hubby’s eyes, an unforgettable trip, deeply imprinted in his mind and heart.
