JUST FOR A MOMENT LAST NIGHT, TIME STOOD STILL

The ushering in of a Global Indian 2021 seemed so extraordinary – surreal in fact. No family and friends mingling, no hugs and handshakes for the neighbours – for the very first time in my life, and I suspect for countless others, the dawning of the new year could not have been so different as […]

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 […]

TRUE LIFE STORY | LIVING THE INDIAN DREAM – AMARARAM GURJAR

In today’s podcast, Rajan travels to India to meet Amararam Gurjar.  Part of the modern face of Indian diplomacy, his personal story reads as a bestselling novel.  Born in the remote villages of Rajasthan, India, he walked 5km everyday across the desert barefoot in 50-degree heat to sit and study beneath a tree with 90 other students and 1 teacher. From the remote corners of a community that was often overlooked, he decided to change his fate and through sheer determination, found his way working small jobs to fund his way through secondary school and beyond.

With the regular risk of sulphur poisoning and nepotism destroying his chances of work, through to studying 17 hours a day for 50 days to sit an exam that would change his life, Amararam’s story is not only a living tapestry of what is possible, but also that the Indian dream does exist.

Their conversation is a whirlwind of twists and turns that you could not make up! A truly inspirational listen. A special thanks to our guest Amararam for sharing his awesome journey.
