Loyalty is a State of Mind.

I would really suggest my country men to tone down their acerbic nationalism when overseas as if things were that great back home you would not have applied for the PhD here, funded by local taxpayers right?

Practice gratitude, loyalty is not defined by your travel document.

theory is for research papers not for transgenerational migrants such as me! It’s lived experience as we live fragments in many places in an archipelagic manner (hat-tip to Prof Ananya Jahanara Kabir and Ari Gautier !)
