About the Show

Joining the host Rajan Nazran in this podcast is Jayshree Parasuramen, a dedicated reporter in South Africa who is currently witnessing and experiencing the ongoing riots and violence following the imprisonment of former President Jacob Zuma.

Riots and violence profoundly impact society, leaving lasting scars that are difficult to overcome. In this episode, Jayshree sheds light on the common misconceptions surrounding protests and highlights how these demonstrations have now reached smaller communities, townships, and residential areas, with people coming together to protect their families. 

She shares her concerns about the targeted attacks on Indian communities, which have sparked a disturbing narrative of animosity between different racial groups. Jayshree also addresses her expectations from the government and raises the issue of the lack of international attention to these attacks. She delves into the concept of reverse apartheid and discusses the current state of the Indian community. Furthermore, she candidly shares her fears and uncertainties about her future in South Africa and her sense of belonging in the country.

Tune in to this insightful podcast where Jayshree engages in a thought-provoking conversation about the riots, the impact on the Indian community, and the president’s address to the nation.
