Another Report on longstanding India-Khaleeji connections

By Caroline Osella|June 2, 2019|Media, project results and findings, Uncategorized|0 comments

I recently posted about some human stories which remind us of the longstanding travel connections between the Gulf and India and about an instagram project gathering images of Gulf Indians.

Now I’ve received (thanks to the amazing Ala group) a link to another interesting blogpost tracking these connections. It contains some interview words from Dr Neha Vora, whose book about Dubai Indians challenges narratives of purity and separation.

As I continue to sift my interviews and database material, I hear many older respondents telling me about their experiences in the 1970s and 1980s of friendships, support and spaces shared across ethnic divides. These testimonies are heartwarming – and important to hold on to.
