Good episode? Give it some love!
On this episode we explore the idea of 'Indian-ness' with Samira Bandaru, a Product and experience designer from Georgia Tech; who shares her thoughts of growing up first generation Indian in the US. When is someone Indian enough? Does having an Indian accent count? Must one be defined solely by their racial and cultural identity?
It is hard enough to define what it means to be an Indian in India, leave alone trying to define what it means to be an Indian born and living outside of India. The American born desi comes in many flavors. Primarily dictated by the lived experiences of the individual in question. The Indian diaspora and their descendants are an ever-evolving bunch and it's time we move beyond conveniently boxing individuals. Instead, appreciate them for the uniqueness in interests, experiences and diversity of thought that they each bring to the table.
