Is the term BAME – Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority Groups outdated and divisive. I speak to BBC Asian Network’s Ankur Desai along with guests Meera Sharma and Karanjee Gaba. Listen to the full interview on the website or full audio below
A vintage gem that speaks a thousand words and needs no filter.. Three generations in one frame, each silently narrating their paths.. The matriarch – my Nani – undeterred by the struggles life has thrown her, and leading her tribe forward with integrity and sincerity.. Her daughter – my mother – who looks on in awe and pride at this woman who has single-handedly raised the next generation, and still clutches my shoulder, oozing maternal love. And little ole me – clinging on to my mum’s hand, knowing I’m in the presence of motherhood and feeling safe and protected. I can’t think of anything more powerful than this…. Selfless, humble and pure love… 💕💕💕💕💕
In conversation with best-selling author Sweta Vikram and creative professor and author Sayatani Dasgupta – as part of South Asian Heritage month we discuss the wonderful world of writing and why our voices matter..!
“….It’s not us who should be silenced or forced into guilt, it is those who hold resentment and fear of what our collective voices can evolve into that need you. Because I certainly don’t and I no longer wish to carry you alongside with me.”
