New Zealand and India are about as opposite as can be. But we’ve found a home here. For a small country, there are a disproportionate number of kiwis in Kolkata. Historically there are special ties with New Zealanders sending people to serve in Kolkata, dating back as far as the 1800’s.

Tell her story. Stay true.
