In the Pursuit of UTOPIAN LIFE in Australia

The novel “In the Pursuit of Utopian Life in Australia” is written by Mr. Shiva Neupane which is realistically wonderful. The story in the novel is richly mirroring the Nepalese students’ living conditions and other whole shebang of harsh realities to adjust in Australia for their promising future. This novel is not only based on a love story but more importantly it also explains the multi-dimensions of truth as to why there is a tendency on the part of Nepalese students’ into dreaming Australia as one of the most desired utopian lands in the world. The writer has a good facility not only with English language but more significantly with explanations also, such as Nepal is regarded as Gautam Budhha’s birth place and the other scenic beauty of nature like rivers and mountains while having to onset the dialogue between the two characters Deepak and Fiona. Fiona is the girl friend of Deepak and they have a son Paul. They love Paul too much and this makes their relationship even better. But the sad side of the story is that Deepak gets relentlessly objected from his parents not to make any kind of relationship with foreign girl Fiona because of their religious and cultural issues. However, the parents’ objections do not work out because the strong dialogues go over the telephone conversations as, “If it is not logical to marry white girl, then why I should make white money?” In this way, the son’s powerful and persuasive dialogues have constructively convinced his parents.  The novel shows the real Catch-22 situation. The students’ real traumas and their sufferings and psychological and financial challenges to put up with exorbitant university fees, to find out job during global recession and rigmarole and getting their visas sorted in the department of immigration and citizenship etc are very artistically presented. The novel primarily addresses the country’s political, social and economic reasons which have been encouraging students to flee for the quality education and better future in Australia and it is comparing, contrasting and giving the graphic details of the contemporary relevant affairs in the both countries -Australia and Nepal- in terms of life styles, education system, food and culture.

5 year tourist visa for the parents who are waiting for a parent visa

Australia relaxes tourist visa rules for parents of citizens and residents

Chris Bowen MP, the Australian Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, today announced a change to the rules that will enable the parents of naturalized Australian citizens and permanent residents to obtain a 5 year tourist visa. Parents who are waiting for a parent visa, for which there is a long waiting list can apply. ‘I know many people are waiting patiently in the queue for a parent visa so we want to provide more generous tourist visas to enable regular extended family visits,’ he said.
Applicants who fulfil certain criteria will be granted the five year visa. It will allow them to visit Australia as often as they like with a maximum stay of 12 months on any visit, Mr Bowen said this morning, 4th September 2012. He said that the changes will come into effect by the end of 2012.

Mr Bowen said that the change was brought about in recognition of ‘the valuable role parents play in assisting their children and grandchildren in Australia and the social benefits such visits provide.’

The visas will be granted on a case-by-case basis ‘and will enable parents to spend more time in Australia with their families while they wait for a parent visa,’ Mr Bowen explained. Applicants must ‘meet Australia’s health and character requirements, have access to adequate funds, have health insurance to cover any healthcare costs…and intend a genuine visit to Australia.’ Mr Bowen said that the government will also consider 3 year tourist visas for parents who are not in the queue for a parent visa. .

Extended tourist visa holders will still have to leave Australia to apply for a further visa, as do all tourist visa holders.
