THE INDIAN DIASPORA: IN SEARCH OF IDENTITY

Ayesha Afsana.

Abstract
Diaspora includes the ethnic population who are induced to leave their traditional ethnic homelands, being dispersed throughout different parts of the world and ensuing developments in dispersal and culture. The origin of the Indian diaspora was due to the subjugation of the country by the British and its annexation into the British Empire. Significantly, the migration of people from India started during the nineteenth century as a result of the economic compulsions generated by colonialism due to the potential demand for cheap labour. The number of the Indian diaspora stands over twenty five million reflecting the full multiplicity and variety of rich social, ethnic, religious and cultural tapestry of their motherland. Studies on diaspora started in the late twentieth century in academics. On the basis of secondary data, the paper focuses on the social realities of the Indian diaspora. The paper draws on empirical studies which point out the major issues concerning the Indian diaspora which include their cultural identity, education, economic development, healthcare services, ill-treatment, harassment and dual citizenship.

Key words: Diaspora, Indian diaspora, migration, colonialism, cheap labour
