Relocating to Dehradun

Since our daughter could not get her MA admission in 2014 She took a year off to learn French Language in Alliance Francaise de Delhi at Lodhi Road.  In 2015 also admission to MA in Delhi University, JNU or Ambedkar University could not be secured.  As she did not want to lose another year, we started toying with the Idea of joining Visva Bharati University or Kalyani University and forms filled up and she got ready for tests.  In the meantime, Doon University in Dehradun on their website announced that a few seats in MA English were available through 'walk-in' interview.  So we thought why not take a chance there!  So she appeared for an interview and was selected.  She found the HOD of English Dept. was very nice and she would be happy to study under her.  So we decided to get her admitted and stay in the Hostel before we could move out from Delhi to Dehradun.

In the meantime we started looking for rented accommodation through 'Dehradun Classified' ,99 and and finally we decided to take a house in Nehru Colony about 3 and half Km. from her University.  We shifted to Dehradun on 1st of Nov. 2015.  After about 30 years of stay in Delhi and Gurgaon we moved out to a new place, completely unknown. 

As my work done through internet and my friend cum boss had no objection to our being in Dehradun we could seamlessly moved out of Delhi with our household goods courtesy 'Agarwal  packers and movers'  After our coming here, our daughter decided to continue in Hostel because of certain logistic advantages.  She would come home on weekends or on holidays.  So she could enjoy the best of both life - Hostel and Home.

I keep going to Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Delhi branch every alternative months and stay 5 to 7 days and devote my time in catching up with reading new books and Reception work.  I also talk to a number of visitors about philosophy of life and how one can live a better quality of life.

For the next one year we have to be at Dehradun till our daughter finishes her MA study. The change of place may take place by August 2017.
