We were lucky to speak to Subash as our first interview as part of the project. He asked us to interview him in the formal front room of his tidy duplex, but we opted for the living room because the walls were painted in bright pastels, lit up by natural light streaming in from the windows.  Subash treated us with utmost respect and answered our questions carefully, as his wife and youngest son lingered in the kitchen behind a wall. They eventually joined us as conversation turned to their religion (Hinduism), music and Indian food, topics that they told us they knew more about.  I can attest to his wife’s knowledge of food, because she brought us tikkas (fried potato cakes with chickpeas inside) and chili sauce after we finished the interview and they were delicious!
