The Price of Citizenship?

    Today marks the second voyage of the History of Indianness.  In this episode we look back at the almost forgotten world of Indentureship and the silent war that was Sugar. With painstaking research, we bring together a formidable group of historians, former heads of state, playwrights and social commentators to guide you through a dramatic period of history that redefined our notions of Indianness and saw the spirit of a community in the vortex of corruption and hate. This immersive podcast begins dramatically on board  the Whitby in 1838, the first ship to carry Indian indentured labourers to the colonies.

    We touch on:

    The hidden history of Indentureship
    Common misperceptions
    The stories of triumph in the face of certain death
    A deeper look into John Gladstone and Black Lives Matter
    The way Sugar has changed the course of Indian identity
    Ending identity politics in former colonies

    About the Global Indian Series:

    My name is Rajan Nazran Chief Explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO), because let’s face it, we are everywhere!

    For almost 15 years we have travelled across the globe covering 58 countries to date whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable 50 shades of brown community.

    Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for us!

    Our purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the human experience of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, what we do is bring people and communities together.

    We do this by plunging into the human experience of being a person of Indian origin (PIO), taking a second look at the countries we now call home and tackling the conversations we need to know more about.

    Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.  Our work is featured in global brands including The Indian Express through to the CNBC network.
