Born to Singh: An Introduction

We’re a curious couple. There’s question about that. But we certainly have received more than a couple curious questions, so we’ll use this first post as an FAQ to introduce ourselves before we move into the bulk of this blog. We’d like to use our platform to further explore our differing and similar interests. We’d …

Progress on Aman’s Visa

We are in the process of applying for a CR1 visa for Aman to move to America. This is a conditional residency. The condition being that we were married for less than 2 years when we first applied. Considering our 2 year anniversary is in about 2 months, we will need to apply for an …

Indian Movies that I Recommend

Aman and I really enjoy sharing our favorite movies with each other. We get to know more about each other and our respective cultures. Movies give us a crash course in pop culture, inside jokes, and memes that would be otherwise hard to explain. After we watched Princess Bride (because of course we did), Aman …

Kerala

Places to go in India: Kerala  With a nickname like “God’s own country,” Kerala is a must-see in India. Although it was the last place Aman and I visited on our 2017 tour of India, it’s the first place I am going to mention because we absolutely loved our time there. It was the perfect …

A Bedtime Story

Aman requested a bedtime story, so I started telling him this one. After awhile, he was nearly asleep and asked how it ended so he wouldn’t miss anything. I said, “Oh, I don’t know yet. I’m making it up as I go along.” He was shook. Now I’m rounding out an ending for him to …

What to Wear to a Punjabi Wedding

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Punjabis, it’s that they go all out. Whether their singing, dancing, drinking, fighting, or partying, you can expect extravagance, going over the top, taking it to the next level. And if you’ve been invited to attend a Sikh wedding in north India, you better keep up and dress …

Random Thoughts

Here goes my first blog post on our blog. Krista was asking me to write some blog posts, but I was saying, I’ll write when she’ll be sleeping. Now she is sleeping (it’s 4 PM IST on Sunday = 3:30AM PST) and I am writing. We were supposed to go out, but we fell asleep. …

Sandals for Every Adventure

So I love these shoes. I bought them on Amazon in July before I came to India for the first time, and so far they have helped me move into my new apartment in LA, travel throughout India, and match with my outfits. The Rose Sandals by Keen are super comfortable, and I’ve never had …

India’s Special Marriage Act

Today was supposed to be the day we would place our final signatures on the long-awaited marriage certificate. But, yet again, we are delayed (this time because someone died, so I shouldn’t be so harsh about it). A bank holiday was declared upon the death of former financial minister Surinder Singh – read more here …

5 Months Living in India

People always ask how it’s different living in India is from the US, and I always say, “Everything is different.” But at the same time, things aren’t completely unfamiliar – especially when we are all laying around the living room looking at our iPhones while Amazon Prime plays Jurassic Park with Hindi subtitles.
