Joined by Global Indian Ambassador Rajesh Gopie, in today’s episode, Rajan travels to South Africa to meet Sham Maharaj, and follows up on the latest news following the riots in Phoenix.

The discussion is a dive into the questionable aftermath and treatment of Indians by the government, and looks at whether the pursuit of justice is as colour coded as the violence that erupted against ethnic minorities in the country in the last few months. We also take a look at the work of the Ubuntu forum and question if social cohesion is still a dream.

Aspects of this podcast may be upsetting to listeners.

About the Global Indian Series:

My name is Rajan Nazran 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 50 shades of brown 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 human experience 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 through to the CNBC network.
