Walk With Me

Summary

The most ethnically diverse segment of the Today’s Families community, Successful Immigrants is comprised primarily of young parents and mid-life families. Hard-working and high-achieving, they like to surround themselves with the trappings of success: the latest home entertainment equipment, kitchen appliances and tech products.

Walk with Me

My family immigrated from Jaipur to Auckland in the 1980s; my uncle’s family moved here a few years earlier and kept talking it up, until finally my parents decided to make the move too. My father’s a paediatrician, and got a skilled migrant visa without any problems. I was a teenager at the time, but adapted pretty quickly.

My wife Maya migrated with her family around the same time; she was slightly younger than me. Both our families settled in Glen Eden, and after we got married, we decided to stay in the area too. Our 15-year-old daughter Asha says she’s moving to the inner-city as soon as she can: she’s so Kiwi in her attitudes. I’m sure she’ll eventually recognise that being close to family is more important.

Asha’s a good girl, really. She studies hard, and has a healthy social life with her circle of friends. She’s a little addicted to her smartphone, but she‘s also our go-to person when we have any trouble with electronics. She was over the moon when we gave her an iPad for her fifteenth birthday.

We own a rental apartment in Auckland, which has certainly helped provide us with a steady income, though we won’t be quitting our day jobs just yet by any means.

We’re going back to India later this year to catch up with family — we go every year. Maya’s organised it all: I can’t wait! For me, a week in Coromandel over Christmas doesn’t count as a holiday: you’ve gotta leave the country.
