I was born to a Tamil Mauritian father and Irish mother. My journey growing up was probably a little unconventional compared to many children of inter-marriages. I grew up as pretty much a Tamil boy, culturally. In fact I value and love all things Tamil because I was taught that this is what forms the foundations (and the rest) of my identity. If I didn't believe this I probably would not have so much love for my culture and language (although I only started learning the language when my children started Tamil school).
