Personal side note: Depinder and his amazing family invited me in for home cooked Punjabi food. Whilst the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo slept next door. Yes welcome to the wonderful Global Indian Series
Born to a father working in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and without a permanent
address or office, had its perks. The biggest was getting a stature of “ World Citizen”.
When I was five years old, my voyage into foreign lands began, starting with Cairo,
Egypt. After living there for 4 years we came back to India for 3 but clearly the
wanderlust lifestyle became my destiny and I lived in Switzerland, Philippines, Mozambique
and Angola. Mozambique and Angola were for 7 years each and perhaps my love of all things Portuguese began!
I have now been in Portugal for over 13 years and it truly is home. Throughout my time here, it was not only possible to stay and live among the locals but also wonderful to experience and be part of their education system, culture, food, religions, work ethics, political orientation, tolerations and intolerations, arts, sports and everything
else you can imagine.
