Nikesh’s Recent Updates

“To be an immigrant, good or bad, is about straddling two homes, whilst knowing you don't really belong to either.”
Nikesh Shukla, The Good Immigrant

“Integrate well. Move upwards in society. Be praised – until people worry that you’re doing too well, and then they remember that you’re foreign." (from "The Good Immigrant" by Nikesh Shukla)”
Nikesh Shukla, The Good Immigrant

“Musa Okwonga, the poet, journalist and essayist whose powerful ‘The Ungrateful Country’ closes the book, once said to me that the biggest burden facing people of colour in this country is that society deems us bad immigrants – job-stealers, benefit-scroungers, girlfriend-thieves, refugees – until we cross over in their consciousness, through popular culture, winning races, baking good cakes, being conscientious doctors, to become good immigrants. And we are so tired of that burden." (from "The Good Immigrant" by Nikesh Shukla)”
Nikesh Shukla, The Good Immigrant
