An Ethic of Gratitude.

There is a saying in Hindi ‘Jis Thali Main Kahte Hain Us Thali Main Naheen Thooktein Hain’ which is as ‘One does not spit in the plate which one eats in’.

i learnt the lesson incredibly early in life as a third-generation immigrant in Mumbai and then (second generation) in the Gulf. Be grateful as an immigrant, as a temporary guest worker one is a ‘guest’.

I am grateful for the work and study opportunities which Oman, UAE, and Singapore over the past three decades has provided me and my parents as an Indian Citizen.

Keep your radical politics at home. We support our families from work that we do not find at home.
