Meet the Samrow Family – Portugal By Depinder Samrow
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.

Support change: A little favour to ask-We believe true freedom is to be able to act without fear or favour and that identity is not a “brand” to be abused, politicized, or reduced for personal gain. As Global Indians, the need to work together is greater now than ever before. If we want to see real change, we need to create a better society for all, tackle injustice and plunge into the many aspects of what the human experience truly offers.The Global Indian Series has been built to be a platform of integrity, fairness and to remain fiercely independent of political influence. We are the first in the world to connect with every echelon of society with all human voices being treated equally. We are the first to have travelled physically to locations far and wide, often putting our own lives on the line to bring forward stories that deserve to be told. Whether it’s through our Podcast that delves into the human experience behind identity, our articles and features that cover key events we need to know, or live based events that tackle topical discussions, we have been there to support a better community and planet.Despite the high costs and time needed to maintain our work, we continue, because we know our work has helped more people understand what is happening within the communities across our planet, why it matters, and how, together, we can demand progress. We challenge head-on, the silent divisions that have crept into our collective consciousness and how to tackle key issues that often go neglected in mainstream media.How you can help:Please share our work: By collaborating with others who share our values, our combined voices make change, with many more becoming inspired to take meaningful action.Subscribe to the platform:Many from across our community have decided to subscribe to our platform.
