Recently I was contacted by Sowmya Rajaram at Sunday Mid Day about a piece she was working on regarding Intercultural Relationship Blogs where one half of the couple is Indian.
She wanted to interview ME for her piece!
I mean….Cool BEANS dude!
As well as ……
- The Bad Bhabi – to read her post.
- My Indian Love – you can find her post here.
- By Two Kaapi – here’s her post on the article.
- A Girl From Foreign
- Cyn’s Adventures in India
- Gori Girl – you can see her post here.
And then reality hit and I realized that the only way I could do the interview was if I did it as Gori Rajkumari.
Bear and I are happy with our relationship and we are very forthcoming about everything that we experience. We want to share what we go through so other’s can learn from it without feeling alone and scared about consequences.
Essentially, we wanted to give other’s a chance to view this life in a way we couldn’t view when we started off dating.
And I think we’ve done well at it. Sharing and getting the word out that it’s not all Roses but it’s also not all Thorns.
BUT….the thorns that we do experience are generally related to people or experiences outside of Bear and myself. And to save THOSE people and still be able to express our thoughts on these things we’ve decided to keep the blog anonymous.
Or as close to it as we can get.
So, I wrote back to Sowmya and explained that I would love to be interviewed but that I must ask that no real names or pictures be used for her piece. And she responded in the positive!!
And so it was that Gori Rajkumari and her Rajkumar have made it to the big league. Kind of. 🙂
