It is well documented that Indian women have fallen prey to Indian men “overseas”, leaving them in a very precarious situation financially, emotionally, and in terms of health issues. But what is rarely spoken about, is when it is the man that is the victim.
Men’s Rights Activists claim that divorce and child custody laws are biased against them with approximately 18% of fathers getting full custody. In today’s ear-opening episode, Rajan goes to the USA to speak to Ravi, a guy duped into marriage and then banned from seeing his toddler daughter. The conversation is a heartfelt account of day-to-day battles, loneliness, and judgment but above all a parent’s remarkable love and sheer determination to be reunited with his child and the huge gamble on a life-changing journey.
About Ravi Patel:
Ravi Patel reached out to the show directly requesting us to share his story during a very trying time during a custody battle with his ex-wife in India. He wanted to shed light on the roles that fathers play and moreover, that courts often favour women.
About the Global Indian Series:
Rajan Nazran is the chief 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 global 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 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, OWM, Manager, ABC and many more.
