USA (Santa Clara) – Part 1

USA … The land of Americans … The land with all the nationalities living together, in a way….The land where you hardly see anyone.

USA … The place with loads of opportunities … loads of facilities….so many, that you don’t need anyone for anything. Everything is automated. You become so self-dependent that you don’t need anyone…. you don’t get anyone either.

USA … The place with a clear sun, the sky is so clear that it’s amazing!!! At night, you can see the stars, the Orion, the Big Bear…you name them, you have them! The Homes!!! They have all the basic amenities that you may need, right when you move in! There’s no difference whether you are a gardener or a millionaire, everyone gets it all.

The place, where if you lose your job, you don’t have any option but to kill yourself and your wife n kids because you can’t live more than a month. There’s no option of moving into a local chawl and cutting on to your budget, coz watever you may do, the cost of living remains the same for all, for the basic amenities, at least.

USA … where the bus driver would waiver off your ticket if you have any less money than the ticket!!

The place where the buses are so less that one needs to wait for minimum of 15 minutes. The frequency of the most-used bus is every 15 minutes.

USA … The country where people say a “Hi” to you no matter who you are. Whether moving on roads, whether in malls, or in buses. If they see you, they smile or say a hi. No matter whether you are an American, Mexican, or an Asian! Cheers you up, even if it’s for a minute!

The place where people you know are more distant than strangers. If you ask a stranger for a help, he would be always helpful. But, if you know someone, eg. colleague or something, then you must not “expect” that the person will come to your help even at the time when you’re dying. You can’t take anyone for granted, after all!

  1. o gracious thank god u showed some negative aspects as well ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› :P….hearing all the good things was tempting me so much ๐Ÿ™‚ :)….but now i can relax and stay here ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› for the time being ๐Ÿ™‚ :)….

  2. You know I was one of those few, ignorant people who never dreamt of going abroad. When I was told that I’m going to USA, it was nothing more than a career opportunity for me. I found the world around me behaving like crazy. People feeling jealous. The changing reactions n concealed frowns n disappointments…. Ohh! amazing new facts.But, when I came here, looking at the comfort, the facilities, the life here, even I was tempted to stay on and think of some way to settle here only.It’s only now that I’m back to my senses and I can see things in white and black.How mirage like things must be for the people who’re crazy and looking for sm way, by hook or by crook, just to come here!No one knows what exactly it is or wat it can offer to you, until and unless you yourself see it. People leave everything they have just for this mirage….without having the slightest hint that wat dey’re going into.Quite obviously, that’s why US is the land of opportunities for some and a land of loneliness for others. ๐Ÿ™‚PS: I don’t know if this comment made much sense, but it was a continuation of the thought that led to the blog. Decode it, if care to!
