[Announcement] New Booklet ‘Adjusting to the American Way of Life’
18 June 2013
Kathmandu – A new guide titled ‘Adjusting to the American Way of Life – Tips for Visitors, Students and Immigrants from Nepal’ has been published. Ms. Anita Adhikary, a co-author of the booklet, visited IOM Nepal and shared her time with Bhutanese refugees in the Transit Center in Kathmandu.
Anita’s new work is a testimony to her intimate attachment to her two cultures and the in depth knowledge of both. The booklet takes a new comer migrant to discover and learn the way of life in US in a clear and fitting way. IOM Nepal uses the booklet as a useful complement of its orientation for refugees, as their long journey starts, appreciating her great help.
At IOM Nepal’s Transit Centre, Anita spent her time with Bhutanese refugees and shared her own unique lifetime experiences with them. Her talks greatly inspired the audience and soon steered up many questions.
IOM hopes that the dissemination of the booklet among US-based Nepalese will help smooth out the transition of migrants into their new life, which is not always easy, while keeping alive the equally important sense of belonging home.
The new guide ‘Adjusting to the American Way of Life – Tips for Visitors, Students and Immigrants from Nepal’ (in English and in Nepali) has been written by Dr. Bal Krishna Sharma, Ph.D. & Anita Adhikary, and published by Association of Nepalese in Midwest America (ANMA) and NRN NCC USA.
