A few days ago, I was made aware of a situation currently in India, which I was totally ignorant of. Since I left the country with my family half a century ago, I was so eager to start a new life that I hadn’t paid much attention to those ethnic Chinese who remained in India and had made India their home. I assumed everything had changed for the better after the ’62 war was long over. Apparently, I was wrong. Those Chinese born before 1950 that hold Chinese passports, are still being denied Indian citizenship.
