The author grew up in the lap of the Himalayas where the snow clad mountains are almost like a back drop. Cupid’s arrow binds her to a Prince Charming from Holland where she migrates to and starts a life among the flatlanders. What is it like to dive headlong into another culture? After having worn a different shoe and romped in the Himalayas, was it just as easy as slipping into a pair of clogs and walking on….? Facing cultural challenges that arises in a marriage of an ‘East meets West culture’ environment, struggling with questions like, what are the expectations of a Dutch ‘Schoondochter’ daughter-in-law? How does one move about in a Dutch society? What comes easy and what are the thresholds and why? In a unique manner of recounting her journey across two cultures, the author not only reveals the peculiar habits of the flatlanders, but also gives a glimpse of her own culture back home to the readers. A very compelling comparison of the two cultures and mind sets. If you are looking for a light read with a dash of humour and a cup of tea to go by, look no further for you have the former in your hand but will need to get your own tea!!
