For 100 weeks we have been on a quest to uncover the human experience behind our perceptions of identity, the very definition of how we choose to live our lives and the impact it has on the world at large.
This evolving quest has redefined an entire generation and tightly stitched together over 48 countries in a tapestry of authentic, liberating discussions that plunge deeper into our understanding of one another. From global voices through to local heroes, we have helped preserve and empower communities to make meaningful change.
In today’s show, I am joined by my dear friend Kulvinder Ghir as we take a trip back down memory lane to look at the stories that have reshaped our collective understanding and the big challenges of our times.
What started off as a quiet expedition has turned into a world movement. More than 110 hours of recordings, 25 global figures joining our Ambassadors Program, global Indian festivals and a website that has become the platform for liberal discussions impacting a generation.
Join us in celebrating the worlds greatest journey.
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.
