Indian Diaspora in Asia
Generations after their forefathers first settled across Asia, the Indian diaspora has fully assimilated into their adopted countries, yet continues to embrace and celebrate India’s rich cultural heritage. Integrated into other Southeast Asian societies, how do they maintain these traditional links?
In this 4-part miniseries, we go beyond the origins of India’s diaspora in Asia and focus on the community’s contributions internationally and to their host societies. From entrepreneurship to arts, science and technology to food and even family conglomerates, we explore the evolution, influence and spread of India’s culture.
What social, economic and cross-cultural challenges does the world’s largest overseas-based community face? How are they weaving India’s cultural fabric into their everyday lives?
