Telugu Brothers and Sisters in South Africa
Meeting our Telugu Brothers and Sisters.
South Africa is a country well known to many of us. Many Indians settled there some 150 years ago. Most of them went as indentured labourers. South Africa has many beautiful and large cities and towns with modern infrastructure. Durban is one of those cities where many the Indian community has settled in large number. The 150th year of the arrival of Indian Indentured labourers was recently celebrated there. The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma graciously noted in his State of the Nation Address in Parliament that celebration ‘provides an opportunity to recognise the important contribution of the Indian Community in the fields of labour, business, science, sports, religion, arts, culture and the achievement and consolidation of our democracy.’
