Meet Dóri

I would like to introduce my readers to this wonderful lady called Dora – a 25 year old Hungarian who has traveled far and wide at such a young age. She loves snail mailing, the aviation and traveling. img_6548

I was impressed with her right after reading this blog post on her wonderful blog about my country. Never before had I read a foreigners unbiased and truthful view on India like she wrote.  Usually we Indians are used to reading derogatory comments about our country and even more so – certain foreign film makers that shoot in India choose only to depict the filth and the poor state of people and affairs. Dori for a change tried to present a very true picture of what it was like traveling to the capital of India.

I commented – ” For once someone is writing positively – or rather factually about India. Otherwise the poor country is always shown as a shackled unsafe place with people imagining elephant rides and snake charmers on the side of the roads.We need to meet dear lady. Next time – please make it to Mumbai”

Coming back to her blog – you can see how detailed and thorough she is in her writing. For example in a post about penpals – she has given resources of where to find them as well as in another post also told how to write a letter. Its almost like a mini learning session.

She has a pretty active Instagram account as well. I am sure you would really enjoy following her. It has been so good to know her a little bit and I look forward to meet her when she comes to India next (or when I go to Hungary)

  1. I am now working at a global company and one of my cube mates is Indian. She is from Mumbai. It has been so interesting learning about the Indian culture and hearing about the area she is from. We usually spend lunch explaining American slang and pop culture to her while she tells us about her country.
