We are living in an intense age of competition and we have to struggle a lot to lead a life we have dreamt about. So, living away from home has become like a trend in today’s youth. Just remember how many people you knew in childhood who is staying away from home within India or outside India? You could count the name sin your fingers then but now every family has more than 2-3 people who are NRI’s. They send gifts from abroad to fill their home and the family members feel proud and happy to home the new gifts. But deep down they want to throw away every item and call the person back from foreign land as this happiness holds no meaning without their presence. Then again coming back to reality, they have to control their emotions and live with the truth that their son/daughter stays away. But are they really away? This is the best and advanced age of communication which knows to make everyone happy.
You know the favorite food item of your son/daughter. You must be spending your days planning to cook those dishes when they return. But using major international courier services, you can cook some non-perishable items and send them across so that they get a nice smelling call from their homeland and their heart is filled with nostalgic air. Most of the online gift shops have made this impossible thing possible. You are just a click away from your loved ones to wish with your gifts on their birthdays. You can send rakhi to UK, diwali diyas to US, Valentine roses to Australia, or Women’s Day gifts to Philippines, by using these amazing services. Your loved ones would be enthralled with your thoughtful gesture. Life is really short so you cannot leave a single day and postpone your love and happiness. Those seated miles away from you is undoubtedly connected to you from their heart. But again as a well-wisher, you should try all these things to let that person know that how much he/she is loved and missed back in homeland.
Those staying away from homeland are generally becomes more patriotic. Anything and everything related to their motherland makes them silently cry as they have paid the price for dreaming a beautiful life. When he/she comes annually all your tension vanishes. A sister waits to hug her brother as she has missed him more than anything else during rakhi although she didn’t forget to send a rakhi to UK. A father has missed the hug while he was promoted. And the mother has missed him every day at the dining table and in the courtyard. So for the happiness and joy of both the sides, keep on gifting him more and more on occasion or no occasion and one day he would definitely give a call to say that he is moving to India forever.
