Where Do I Belong?

“There is no distinct native culture for people who were born and have been brought up in an international environment. As an Indian who grew up in Dubai, I find it very hard to identify a place where I are from and where I wanna be. I think this is true for anyone who has lived in a different country than where they are originally from. We really don’t know which place to call our home.

“It gets even more irritating when people come up with all kinds of stereotypes. `Oh you are an Indian, you must be good at math and you would eat curry everyday’. Coming from Dubai, most people think I am filthy rich, but I am not!”
