Another Report on longstanding India-Khaleeji connections
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.
