My Journey – The Indian Self discovery
As nationalities we are many, but as people we are one
My name is Rajan Nazran and in the past 15 years, I have travelled to over 50 countries, taking on some of the biggest conversations and covering stories from around the globe. My appetite for exploration, inside know-how and good food, has seen me voyaging far and wide, from the edges of the Amazon Rainforest, battling against the hurricanes of the Caribbean, being taken hostage in Eastern Europe, through to facing Ebola in West Africa. But now I take on my biggest expedition so far…discovering countries and places that are home to our diaspora and the real experiences that come with it.
This portal tracks my journey across the globe, visiting new locations each as unique as the last, and providing you with insights on the places to go, the experiences to be had and understanding more about our Indian diaspora and the opportunities in the places they call home. The Global Indian Series is an immersive platform that provides original, memorable and exclusive content with on-ground interviews with key people including Heads of State and insights from incredible people. It also provides a platform to celebrate the extraordinary tentacles of Indianness that has weaved itself across the globe.
