Siddis have suffered for long.. With an emerging India, things I hope will slowly change for the better...
Both the entrepreneurs Juje and Juliana must be great role models!

Juliana and Juje's Story
by Indraneel Mandal on Aug 02, 2013 01:09 PM

Really inspiring. Feel good for the couple. Its a lesson that hard work and the right opportunity can take you far ahead. But really feel sorry to read of their racist sufferings; however its not surprising considering even so-called 'bonafide' Indians (i.e., those who are appearance-wise Indians, no disrespect to Juliana and Juje) are rejected as tenants due to their religion, caste, etc. Really feel ashamed to be an Indian at such times.
All the best to the enterprising couple. Good wishes to Suresh for his yeoman's service; hope good things happen in his life too. And thanks to rediff for such a story that makes a difference.

Nice story

Nice story. It's true that though we complain of racism in the west, we are equally racist. Best wishes to Juliana and Juje. Hope they understand that racism is a global problem.
