What can Indian look like: Redefining Indian identities

by Natasha Advani Thangkhiew

What Can Indian Look Like? Redefining Indian Identities is the first of a two-part series exploring Natasha's mixed Sindhi-Khasi identity as she grows up in Mumbai, feeling like a foreigner in her own country. Voices from her life expose discrimination and exotification, forcing her to find her own version of Indian.
