Indo-Zimbabwean Britisher

You speak beautiful Gujarati. Are you Indian?

No, I was born in Zimbabwe, raised in England but my ancestors were Indian.

Oh, I see. Your parents must have migrated.

No, my great grandparents did some 300 years ago.


I met Bharat Ranchod in the train while going on a trip and was so impressed that even after more than 300 years of migration to another country, he has kept his language intact and speak his mother tongue well. He is well versed in other languages and a global traveler. We shared beautiful moments of his travel and the travel we were doing together.

I can’t forget the sweet memories of this sweet multi-hybrid brother from another mother. I hope to meet him again — sometime.
