In today’s episode I stay at home and reflect on 2020 and our 42nd Global Indian Podcast!
It’s been a life-changing year for most as the Covid-19 pandemic arrived quickly, quietly and everywhere. I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to everyone who has been affected by this terrible virus, and express my gratitude to frontline workers, caring for our most vulnerable in impossible circumstances. Thank you for giving your strength to so many.
What began as a hectic year travelling to Canada, USA, Guyana and St Kitts over 2 weeks in January, with an abrupt stop before I could even fly to Italy, turned out to be a cathartic and inspirational movement of minds being shared in an open forum, for all to listen, learn and unite to.
We have aurally travelled around the globe, from Uruguay to Australia, Guyana to Botswana - we are everywhere and we have learned about our journeys, our identities and our Indianness. We are set to travel to even more locations in 2021, so stay tuned!
I want to thank all of the amazing guests that have appeared on the Global Indian Podcast, who wore their hearts on their sleeves and bore all. We have created a safe mooring ground and because of this, pertinent conversations have been shared. Also a big shout out to my wife and kids, who, throughout various imposed London lockdowns, would often have to remain super quiet whenever recording; this can definitely be challenging for a 6 and 1 year old!
So to all; slowly but surely the pandemic will fade, so let’s welcome 2021 warmly. May the New Year bring good health, happiness and good fortune. Until next week!
Happy New Year.
