How to import Python files from different folders?

I’m working on a project that contains many Python files. To use one file in other, I have to import. I’m writing below command to import but I’m getting error.

import os
import sys

dir_path = os.path.dirname(os.abspath(__file__))
sys.path.append(os.join(dir_path, 'C:\Users\MAA COMPUTERS\Downloads\Compressed'))
from NewContent import FirstPara

Can someone correct my mistakes? If you know any other method, I would appreciate it for sharing it with me.
