The Challenge: To love, honor and cherish ítil death do us part. Heís from India, Iím American. Heís kind and gracious, Iím sarcastic and extroverted. His first language is Hindi, mineís English. He grew up Hindu, I grew up Catholic. Oh yeah, Iím a morning person, heís not. The Blog Itself I want this to be a place where I can post funny stories and happenings that arise from having an intercultural marriage without a shared mother tongue. I want to entertain and find/provide support. I would like to share with the world how, despite our myriad differences and confused communication, Varun and I are brought together in Jesus. Because I have a huge mouth and tend not to have a high filter, Iíve thought through some parameters for this blog. I wonít post anything without permission and consent of those in the story, I wonít write anything that is hurtful, unkind or racist. Iíd like this site to promote understanding and grace in interpersonal relationships by sharing with transparency and sincerity our own story. Realizing that laughter is the best medicine, the humor I use is to be funny to both Varun and I, and recounted in love. Although the phrase ESL betrays my western leanings, our cultural differences are highly valuable to me. Our goal is to laugh while we sift through our varying cultural ideas and discard the junk and cherish the gems. The Author Crazy enough to submit my life to public scrutiny, but smart enough to marry my best friend.
