One Week

When I got home last night, there was a letter waiting for me from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship Canada.

I have been called for a swearing in ceremony on Tuesday October 25th, the last and final stage in process of achieving Canadian Citizenship.

That means, I have one last week... 7 days... to call my self Indian.

It has been a long and tedious process to date. One that started not with the application for Citizenship, but with the application for Immigration, back in 1999.

And all that will come to an end one week from now when I stand before a Judge and swear my alligence to a Queen and to a Country that I am only just begining to understand and discover.

No worries, you can always consider yourself Indian. It's what makes Canada so great (we can keep our identity).

Enjoy your new life as a Canadian!
