It has been really long break. Although I have been quiet, I did not give up writing. I was writing elsewhere, that’s all!
I had been working on the manuscript of a memoir. All of you are familiar with my struggles with immigration that had been going on for last several months. I have decided to finally stop fighting and return to India. But I don’t want all of my struggles to have been in vain. I may have lost this battle but I am not yet defeated. My memoir, called Foreigner, details the many injustices of the US immigration system that cost me everything that I had earned through honest hard work. I hope that as you have supported me on this blog, you will support me in voicing my experiences through this book as well.
I don’t want anyone else to have to go through what I did. If US does not want immigrants, it’s time it came out and made that known openly instead of letting unsuspecting people like me come here, stay here, call this place home for 9 years, and then kicking us out for no apparent reason. It’s time that this hypocrisy ends. May be US needs a vote too- in or out- of the world economy? Like Brexit, they too must openly admit to their dislike for immigrants and face its consequences, positive or negative. But no more exploitation, please!
This book is not just my attempt to highlight the atrocities of US immigration, it is also my only hope to earn a way out of here. I have spent every last dollar on trying to stay here and fight the good fight. Now I have nothing left, not even enough to even buy my way out. I will forever be grateful for your support.
The book is currently under review but I will post a link here when it is available for purchase through Amazon and Kindle.
These past few months have not been easy but I continue to hold on to hope and wait for the light at the end of this dark, dark tunnel.
