In the beginning, you may not miss your home. The excitement of the new place and environment may not allow you to do so. You will be pleased to see the cleanliness and excellent infrastructure around you (I am assuming that you are in developed country 😀 ).
Eventually, you will somehow start thinking about the things you miss about Pakistan in abroad. Seems unreal, but can only be felt by the ones who actually witness this fact. No need to get emotional though, the thought in this article is just based on practical observation 😉
6 Things You miss about Pakistan in Abroad
Here we go:
Well, the first and in fact, the most important thing that you will miss is the Desi Food. Mostly, you will miss the home food. Further, you will get all the luxuries abroad but you won’t get that spicy fast food like samosa, naan etc.
Although you may find Halal restaurants even that taste will be nowhere near to the one in the home country.
You may get fed up with eating the same kind of food again and again. It is also possible that you may have to eat the same food for consecutive days. It is also possible that you may have to eat vegetables all the time if you are unable to find Halal meat. Best of all, you may miss ‘Pakoray’ in the rain.
Parents and relatives
No one forgets their Parents and relatives for sure when he is abroad. Obviously, you will be in contact with them. Even though you may somehow feel their absence. You will be doing all of your work yourself! No more ready-made breakfast, lunch, and dinner. No one will be there to wake you up in the morning. Cooking, Cleaning and grocery shopping will be your responsibility. Be prepared if you are going abroad in the near future 😉
You may find new friends abroad. But you are surely going to miss your friends and your gatherings with them. The Saturday nights and Sunday evenings won’t be the same if you are used to spending this time with your friends.
You may find Pakistanis here in abroad to whom you can talk in Urdu. But most of the times, either you will be speaking English or any other native Language. It is also possible that you might feel difficulties in learning the new Language if other than English. Communication might be a problem if that is the case so.
You may not find mosques on every corner of the street as you may do in Pakistan (Assuming that you are not in an Islamic Country).
Well, almost everything is very expensive as compared the prices at home. Unless you get a good job with a handsome salary, you have to be very careful about the expenses.
There is no place like home for sure. No matter how many problems do we have in our country, we will be unable to forget Pakistan. Ask the ones you know, who are abroad. If shared my experience. Do you want to share what things you miss about Pakistan in abroad? Leave a comment on the article 🙂
