2021 Summer Camp: Week 1

When I first started running summer camps in 2012, I would run them from my home. The camps were small, and all the kids (including my own) were tiny. They were wonderful, high octane fun, but my house got a bit of a battering. I still have the paint marks on my furniture! As time …

Forced Breaks – When Fate Takes You In Hand

Counting My Cultural Blessings

As the child of first generation Indian immigrants, who moved to Britain in the sixties, I can tell you that living between two cultures can be complicated at the best of times. But how about living between three cultures? As a British person of Indian origin, who has now settled in America, and is bringing up American kids …
