158 years ago the first Indians from the motherland, India, arrived in South Africa. 👳♂️👳♂️👳♂️👳♀️👳♀️👳♀️🧕🧕🧕
Our forefathers and mothers 😬, came to work on the #sugarcane #plantations and build the railroad.
🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂 16 November 1860, 342 Indians came via the Indian Ocean, on board the ship called the Truro, from Madras, seeking a new life in South Africa.
10days later the second group of 342 arrived in #Durban on board Belvedere from Calcutta.
What a #history!
I would not be south African if it were not for my great grand parents. 🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌍 India is an amazing soulful country but I'm very happy to be a South African and Indian.
