This is a raw, honest, first-person account of the author’s riveting journey to understand who she is as a commonwealth subject and a proud British citizen, and, through family, food, language, and music, discover the universal truths embedded in our concepts of identity.
Highlighting the contributions India and Kenya made to Britain’s colonial history and national identity, this is a story of how diversity can enrich our world and bring us together through the simple concept of humanity – all with a pile of rotis.
“This is my journey as a commonwealth subject, the product of three proud cultural identities each with a rich history. This is the story of how diversity can enrich our world and bring us together through the simple concept of humanity.” Hansa Pankhania
‘A pleasant feel good read!’ Margaret James
‘I was completely unaware of the colonial history. A must read especially with everything going on about Brexit and immigration at present.’ J O’Neill
‘I felt emotionally connected with the author’ S Patel-Murphy
‘This book is really thought-provoking. I very much enjoyed reading it and would have liked to read more. The overriding impression I was left with is that for the author, love, humanity and the idea that we are all part of a world family mean much more than national and cultural identity. That’s a powerful and valuable message.’ Sara Rowell
