How i see Migration?

Updated on May 13, 2012

Migration topic came in my mind yesterday morning when I was sitting with morning cup of coffee in garden with my mother. It is really a very controversial and debatable topic but i am just touching the base.

As we all know, that Migration is not a new concept as people have been migrating since centuries due to different reasons. But these day's reasons have changed and it has been seen as a common trend in today’s society. People are migrating to different Countries for different reasons. But if we look on statistics of Migration majority of people moving to foreign land our Youngsters and reason behind this migration is desire for a better life and future.

What I want to discuss further in this hub is about my experience of people migrating from different countries to a western country. And the way western people are adapting this change. Time spins and with every spins there is a change,Since few years the change in migration process is taking place which has been major reason of having Multicultural society’s around us.

I would quote in this Hub my own experience as I am living in Melbourne where i have Migrated couple of years ago. As we all are well known that Melbourne is well known for Multiculturalism and Bilingualism.

According to my my views, Immigrating to a foreign land means more or less adapting their commitments to life but as all fingers are not alike so few people are against this preposition. Where it turns to be very controversial issue and result to Racism and malfunctioning of the Society.

I have taken few Interviews before Writing this topic here is how a Native Citizen feel :

Linda Fredrick- We Welcome them to our country, But in lieu they don’t respect our Values and Culture.

Mathew Jones- It’s our way or No Way.

Paul- We respect their cultural values, But they should highly appreciate if they can try to understand ours by not talking in their own language in Public place. They are fetching our Jobs and also they not abiding rules.

Migrants View:

Aman- They are not happy to give to us Opportunity because of our colour.

Pooja- They don’t acknowledge us for the ability we have.

I personally have never encountered Racism in Melbourne despite living here since 6 years but i would strongly here say; on this Forum that we all should respect one another to live a great life as thus it will help us grow and nurture in a better World in better way.

      I agree, it is more of respect for people, culture and race. Racism is for those who are non-respectful of other race, and can also be an epitome of his own disgraceful act against his own country. Why can�t we just live normally and allow ourselves to learn from others, sometimes we are afraid and wearisome of the fact that other race will take over and deem its natural born an immigrant to his own country. Bottom line, respect is earned, but it should be a mutual notion. We as immigrant must abide their rules, so as when they are in our country, they will do the same.

      You have written a very informative and useful article. People migrate and 'personal convenience ' is one of the main reasons behind. They move to another country or region to better their material and social conditions. Better prospectus attracts people toward their dream destinations. According to the International Organization for Migration's World Migration Report 2010, the number of international migrants was estimated at 214 million in 2010. If this number continues to grow at the same pace as during the last 20 years, it could reach 405 million by 2050. You have certainly touched interesting topic. Voted up.
