I am a Khoja-Shia Ithna' Ashari who is third-generation Indian born in East Africa. Both my parents came from very prominent families and as a result I was educated at the best quality British schools in Africa, and was sent at the age of 11 to England to continue my education there. As a consequence of being "Westernized" from a very early age, I only speak English; although I can understand a little Kutchi, and a little less Gujarati.
As I have ventured out on my own since before adulthood, I have lived my life by my own principles, always observing the "Golden Rule" of treating others, as you would wish to be treated yourself.
Throughout this time I have been unorthodox in my beliefs, and was not observant of religious practice. Subsequently, I made my own way for most of my life, unknown by the local Khoja community and somewhat estranged from my own family. However, I have now finally come to terms with our cultural and religious heritage and traditions, and have returned to practicing the faith as dictated by my childhood indoctrination. I have also decided to settle down with a Muslim wife from my own culture, despite the fact that I could very easily find another American woman to marry. I believe this to be in my best interests.
Physically, I stand at 5 feet 9 inches, weigh about 150 pounds, am somewhat slim but stay fit and workout at the gym 3 times a week. My interests include primarily "the humanities" in that I am an avid reader, writer, musical composer who has performed professionally, but am involved in it more for the sake of art. I am very civic-minded and in addition to being a social activist involved with causes that seek to eradicate injustices perpetrated against my fellow man, I also volunteer my time for worthwhile causes to help the most needy in my community.
I am also a student of the law, having studied at the University of Miami and earning certification as a paralegal. However, I also plan to pursue a legal degree and hope to practice in the field someday, once my current business grows to a point lucrative enough to support such a venture.
Concerning my present livelihood, I own my own business, which is a correspondence-based high school for adults. In America, since the 1970's, as much as 30% of high school students have dropped out before completion, and this alarming statistic continues to this day. One cannot even get a job at McDonald's without a High School Diploma, and so the students that I recruit to take my courses benefit greatly from my services. I am always gratified by that fact and take great pride in the good that I am able to accomplish by enabling the betterment of thousands of peoples lives and subsequently, the lives of their respective families. The business is still in the growth stages, but shows a lot of promise.
I have a great deal to offer a potential spouse as I am a very sensitive, warm, caring and compassionate individual who holds women in the highest esteem and have always treated them with the utmost respect that I believe is their due. I am seeking an attractive woman between the ages of 35 and 45 with either children who are grown and independent, or with no issues at all.
Also, I am able to facilitate the immigration of a potential wife to the U.S. and help her to establish herself there and to assist her in pursuing her interests; be it a career, further education or specialized training in a vocation of her choice. I have been working in the field of education for almost 25 years and can surely help in this area.
Once an initial exchange of profiles and photos has accomplished the agreement to pursue the matter further, I would like to be able to correspond with a potential life-partner at length as we explore potential compatibility, common interests and especially like-minded sensibilities as this will more easily facilitate trust, honesty and an open-mindedness that would allow for each of us to give and take as required.
Obviously a meeting in person would be ideal.
A successful marriage will require work in all these areas and providing that a potential mate is willing to meet me halfway, there is no reason why a match cannot be made and a life full of love, joy and happiness be shared together.
