karenSueJoy posted Risk of Malairia -UP on the India forum on March 19, 2015:
Anyone have an idea of what the risk of Malaria to expats is in India? Came to Gorakhpur in UP to teach and took many precautions (Hep A and B vaccinations, polio/tetanus, pheumona, flu shots and more) but did not think Malaria was huge problem in that region. Now I see there are more mosquitos than I've ever seen! Thanks. Please reply to:

V r planning for an assignment in Chennai. I have an offer but not sure how affordable it is since we are used to North Amrican Life style and will be keeping out home in NA. This is a higher level position. Does any one have idea if Rs.300,000/month could be affordable? We are looking for nice small indepndet single family house (3-4 bedroom) What would be the cost of this? Also, international schooling is very costly in India. Any idea on that??

karenSueJoy replied to the thread URGENT: Who wants to adopt a cute puppy in New Delhi? on the India forum:
Sunshine2109 initially posted:
Dear all, we have adopted a few months ago a very clever street dog and since then "Blacky" is living in front of our door. She has born a very beautiful puppy at our house on 29.01. Since then we took care about both of them a lot. Mother "Blacky" is going since last week nearly the whole day somewhere else and leaves the kid alone. So we are taking care, leaving her into the house and feed her properly with professional food etc. We give her a lot of love. The problem is that Baby "Dotty" is not ready at all to live on the street. She is more used to humans than dogs. We took her for a short walk which ended up her shaking a lot and not moving a cm. She needs humans around her. Her mother is not caring and not bringing any food for her or following her around. As we are moving unexpectedly to UAE next week we can not take her with us as she is only 1 /2 months old and the dog has to be at least 4 months old. And in UAE we will have a flat and we both will be out of the house the whole day. Not a good situation for a dog. We would like to make sure that Dotty finds a great home and hope that someone responsible might adopt her. We are afraid that leaving her like this will not be an option and she might not survive it. We are ready to pay for a fresh vaccination and dewurming. She is a lovely and very intelligent character and needs a very lovely family. More pictures here: Please do call us: 8527631401 if you are really interested to take Dotty. Please see pictures enclosed. We are in New Delhi

So wonderful you adopted a street puppy! I wish I could take him but I live in Gorakhpur. Fingers crossed you can find a loving home for your little friend. Best of luck to you, your family, finding a home for puppy, and your move to UAE, Karen

Expat Report Dating and Marriage in Bangalore, India was published
What is it like in your country of residence for someone with your relationship status (married/divorced/dating)? If you're single, how do you meet other people? Do English-speaking people tend to gravitate to certain parts of your city?
After five months of living in India, I found myself a single woman in her mid-30's and facing my first experiences with culture shock in this country. Bangalore is a very interesting place culturally (talk about genuine diversity and acceptance in culture and religion!) as it is, but when you mix in dating, it really takes you on a cultural trip. Not only is India a decade behind the States in a lot of ways but with arranged marriages still in practice, it is even more behind in dating... most people have never really dated or just once or twice. I have met other people through colleagues, expat parties, coach surfing, meet-ups, Ok Cupid and now Tinder. Strangely, Tinder provided the best diversity and options for dating in Bangalore--- I am thinking it is because men only have to compose a brief paragraph about themselves and include pictures. Men tend to be rather lazy about filling out dating profiles. In terms of where to go out to meet singles, I suggest Indiranagar, MG road, Ulsoor Lake area, Brigade Road and Church Street. Because people tend not to mingle between groups while out, though, it is difficult to meet new people this way UNLESS YOU take initiative. (Continue)
