“Love life not working out? Health problems? Everything going wrong?”
Amisha Patel was once skeptical of astrological companies that supplied claims concerning the future. Her mother and father, who immigrated to the U.S. from India, would make annual journeys again to Gujarat. When they returned to their New Jersey residence, they might share predictions from Hindu astrologers concerning the fates of their youngsters.
“I found my parents’ belief in fate unnerving and un-American,” Amisha wrote in her Modern Love essay. But in her late 20s, she started to embrace the notion of future because it pertains to love and different experiences in her life.
Could or not it’s that every one paths result in the identical ending? We requested Amisha the place she stands now.
