The immigrant is not just a book it's a true story of a young man who left his family and his friends behind and relocated to the UK...

"I left my home in the sunshine and next morning when I woke up I found myself in the streets of London" ...

"After half an hour a young girl came next to me and said, "Sir would you like tea, coffee, juice or Pepsi "? and I asked her " What else do you have?". She smiled and said, " Food will be served after a while "...

"As soon the doors opened the fresh and the cold air hit my face and said welcome to London Heathrow a place where dreams can come true"...

"In thousands of people nobody knows who I am? Where I came from? Why am I here?"...

"I ran towards the doors and heard the another announcement, " The doors are now opening" and I was surprised and thought it's not only known as The London Underground but also The speaking trains...

"Somebody from the queue said Sainsbury and I asked? Is this a town or city other than London or Manchester"...

"After arriving in the UK I found everyone who was already here as a philosopher and a high profile intellectual as they give me advise free of cost and they want to force their advise on me that I have to do it"...

"Next morning I was awoken by a call from The Police. They explained to me that they had fined my house mate £30 due to riding through a No Entry and they retain the bike to check the ownership status as its been reported as stolen few months ago"...
“After 7 years one day I was sitting on my own, feeling alone, tired, and very stressed completely fed up with everything and I thought to go back home to visit my family and friends. The people who I left behind long time ago and to live not a slave but an independent life”...

I'm surprised the term "arranged marriage" is associated with this story. Two families arrange that their adult brother / daughter meet. All parties are aware that marriage is the object. The two adults are able to make their own marriage decisions and allow their families to intervene. This could be the story of a couple that met on the Internet... sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.more
Nina is a thirty-year-old English lecturer in New Delhi, living with her widowed mother and struggling to make ends meet. Ananda has recently emigrated to Halifax, Canada; having spent his twenties painstakingly building his career, he searches for something to complete his new life. When Ananda's sister proposes an arranged marriage between the two, Nina is uncertain: can she really give up her home and her country to build a new life with a husband she barely knows? The consequences of change are far greater than she could have imagined. As the two of them struggle to adapt to married life, Nina's whole world is thrown into question. And as she discovers truths about her husband - both sexual and emotional - her fragile new life in Canada begins to unravel. Tender and compelling, "The Immigrant" is an honest exploration of a marriage, what it costs to start again - and what we can never leave behind.more
