Beginning of a Journey

I was in two minds about starting this blog until recently. Then the weight of events tipped the balance in favour of some space to vent. Or a place to create a new vision for myself.

I am a doctor in training in the UK. I’m also a “Person of Colour” being of Indian heritage. I suppose I was happy with my place in life for a long while. Perhaps “happy” is too strong a word for it. Better to say I accepted it. But my perspective is coloured by wanting better for my children. I look at Martin Luther King Jr’s speech and think we’re still not there. And I feel sad.

So to be able to present a reality of life as a person of colour seems like a small step to exert some control of the situation for myself.
