IS IT MY INDIANISM, MY INDIANNESS OR JUST ME BEING INDIAN THAT I AM PROUD OF?

The colonial importation of Indian citizens from the sub-continent to South Africa in 1860 entrenched a historical perspective  that runs very deep into the veins of a country whose own history has ebbed and flowed in ways we least imagined. The prime objective of this importation was not simply a migration but a decidedly egregious […]

THE CULINARY ROAD TO HAPPINESS – CHEF VIKRAM VIJ

For our 50th podcast today, Rajan travels to Canada to meet Vikram Vij, an Indian-born Canadian chef, cookbook author, an investor on Dragons Den, and mentor to the masses. Today’s session is a rare insight into the man behind the ingredients, an open book of emotions, and a fortunate stroke of serendipity.

In pursuit of happiness and wearing his heart on his sleeve, Vikram Vij speaks about the challenges he faces from the aftermath of his divorce, fame, and the highs and lows and views on life that will resonate with many.

Brief History on our guest:

Vikram Vij grew up in India, left in 1984 to study hotel management in Austria, and went to Canada in 1989, where he took a job at the Banff Springs Hotel, after a chance meeting with the General Manager of the hotel who was visiting Vienna. He immediately recognized the opportunity to establish himself in a country that was still growing and finding its way with culinary arts and opened his first restaurant in Vancouver in 1994.

A chef with his heart still deeply entwined with the culture he grew up in, his passion lies in bringing the scents, textures, colors, and tastes of his country to his adopted home in Vancouver. Vikram’s restaurants have an almost cult-like following with customers returning regularly so it’s rare for you to find a person in Canada who has not heard of Vikram or his restaurants. And with his ‘No Reservation Rule’ still intact, you will hear many Vancouverites share tactics of when to visit and get a table.

For more information on Vikram Vij’s restaurants, visit https://vijs.ca

What are your thoughts on Vikram’s advice, and how have you created a sense of belonging in the country you now call home? Share your comments below.

A LESSON IN KENYANNESS | THINKING AHEAD WITH VIMAL SHAH

In today’s podcast, Rajan travels to Kenya to speak to one of Africa’s leading entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Vimal Shah Chairman of Bidco Africa who speaks to us about Kenyanness, the perception some have on his country and the deep misconceptions that need to change. From a deep dive into his own personal voyage through to his advice to immigrants and what they need to do to feel a real sense of belonging, Vimal Shah provides an extraordinary glimpse that looks at business, individuality and the legacy of change.

His father Bhimji Depar Shah, witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of the freedom struggle in the mau mau uprising amongst the common people. Being a custodian to the land of his birth Kenya, he decided to help change the fabric of the country through entrepreneurship. The seeds of struggle that were created from there helped shape the mindset of Vimal and his brother.

Vimal was born in 1960 Nyeri Kenya, and after hearing the stories from his father and witnessing his work ethic, his ambitious journey and dedication to giving back to the community began.

He attended the United States International University, Nairobi Campus, after graduating with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Finance.  From humble beginnings, he along with his father and brother set up Bidco Africa which has now become one of the largest companies of its kind across the region. Supporting local communities through employment in addition to inspiring entrepreneurship.

A believer in the power of intuition, a true Kenyan at heart and passionate about his country, this podcast is a change from the norm and an ode to knowing who exactly you are, where you come from and being a role model to the masses.  Indianness is merely a narrative.  A special thank you to Vimal Shah for joining us today.

What are your thoughts on Vimal’s advice, and how have you created a sense of belonging in the country you now call home?  Share your comments below.

RELIGION AND SOCIAL IDENTITY – DR SHERRY-ANN SINGH: TRINIDAD

Do we need India to define our Indianness? And even within the notion of Indianness, how much of our identity is redefined by the countries that we find ourselves in?

In today’s podcast, Rajan travels to Trinidad & Tobago to speak to Dr. Sherry-Ann Singh, a Professor of Indian History at the University of the West Indies who speaks to us about her thoughts on where religion, especially Hinduism, sits in modern-day Trinidad & Tobago, culture and identity and how the Ramayan’s Sita has undergone a variety of interpretations throughout the ages; from being seen as subservient to being in control of her destiny.

A special thank you to Dr Sherry-Ann Singh for sharing her views and giving us a glimpse into a regional perspective of how religious scriptures and stories can be reinterpreted to replicate lifestyles today and the social impact that it can have.

Today, Indian-Trinidadians are the largest ethnic group in the country, (approx 40%), and have left their mark all over the landscape; on cuisine, culture and even music! With a variety of religions being represented across the region. Mix marriages are often the norm within the region with many placing notions of Indianness away from religious identity – but on cultural heritage.

THE BITTER PILL OF DRUG ADDICTION| IN SOUTH AFRICA WITH GERALD MOODLEY

Drugs and addiction in South Africa and especially within the Indo-South Africans is an unspoken issue and over 60% of crime in South Africa is drug-related.  In today’s episode, Rajan travels to South Africa to meet Gerald Moodley, a former narcotics addict who has experienced their damaging side effects and now, 8 years in sobriety, he speaks of his remarkable road to recovery and his advice to others suffering from substance abuse. It is a raw, courageous account of life as an addict and the gift of a new start.

In South Africa, the impact drugs have on the South Asian community is immense but not something we openly talk about.  Alcoholism has almost become normalised yet narcotics is misunderstood and blamed on the evil eye or curses.

Whether in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Soweto, Durban, Pretoria or small towns around the country – South Africa as a whole is facing a major problem with drug abuse.  The United Nations has named South Africa as one of the drug capitals of the world and some officials believe that the current drug problem could be a much larger problem for the country than the AIDS epidemic.

When you’re addicted to drugs, you can’t resist the urge to use them, no matter how much harm the drugs may cause.  Many people don’t understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. They may mistakenly that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will. Drugs change the brain in ways that make quitting hard, even for those who want to.

A special thank you to our guest for sharing his experience with us.

THE GROUNDED BILLIONAIRE – “MADE”IN BRITAIN – SURINDER ARORA

From humble beginnings as a waiter in a hotel that he eventually bought, to building a difference, Rajan stays in the UK and meets Surinder Arora, an entrepreneur with an extraordinary story!  

Born to parents displaced from an India/Pakistan border town, growing up with his aunt and uncle before joining his parents in the UK at the age of 13 and unable to speak English, he defied many odds.  

Following his mother’s work ethic, Surinder left school and worked with BA and Abbey life. He saved and invested in property, buying derelict houses and converting them into bed and breakfast for airline staff.  And after that, as the saying goes…the rest is history.

Today’s podcast is a reflection on life lessons, the highs and lows and how to stay grounded.  Thank you to our guest Surinder for being so open and sharing.

MADE IN PUNJAB -CHANGING PERCEPTIONS WITH RAVI SINGH

In today’s podcast, Rajan stays in the UK to meet Ravi Singh, humanitarian and CEO of charity Khalsa Aid who takes us on a tour of the who, what, where, and why of social constructs, the current Farmers Protest, and the impact of the 1984 riots as a defining moment in his history.  This open conversation is memorable to say the least!

Khalsa Aid provides aid and disaster relief worldwide and is one of the most famous organisations on the planet. Ravi and his team have consistently campaigned for justice for everyone; whether supporting victims of natural disasters or civil conflicts, their volunteers have always been on hand to provide aid, including for the Yezidi women held in ISIS captivity in Iraq, the Grenfell Tower Fire in the UK and the Indonesian Tsunami.  Most recently they can be seen supporting and providing for the thousands of farmers protesting in India.

Thank you to our guest @ravisinghka for being so open and sharing and a huge well done and thank you for all the amazing work he and his team @khalsa_aid have done for many people in many countries.
