Just heard the news that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is travelling to UAE this month and possibly as early as next week. As far as I am aware, the complete itinerary is not out there on the media yet. If there will be a public address like the one in New York and Australia, I would love to go.
There are lot of ifs and buts though. First, I don’t know if he is travelling to Abu Dhabi. Even if he is, not sure if there is going to be a grand reception of sorts. And, would that be on a weekend? Fingers and toes crossed.
After 4 years in India with Wells Fargo at Bengaluru, I have moved job and that too to a different geography. I have moved to Abu Dhabi and have joined a leading local bank here. For the previous move to Bengaluru, I had the good fortune of lovely friends who made us feel that international relocation is a piece of cake.
For the moment, I have moved in alone and have been put up in a hotel by the bank. Once I sort out the residency visas and other mandatory stuff, we need to focus on the greater problem of finding a good school, home and bring the family along. There is a long road ahead of us and it remains to be seen how that pans out. As has been the case, I will update this blog sporadically with updates from Abu Dhabi.
