I was born in Brooklyn to immigrants who had lived in India for about twenty years. I was only the third of nine. Growing up, my parents and I were surrounded by the diversity that my community is known for around the world. But my parents are not immigrants in the “immigrant-dominant” sense of the word. They are refugees from the first world. They grew up in Jamaica and were the first to arrive at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1958, an event that would set the stage for the rest of my life. My paternal grandfather owned an estate in the Bronx. My maternal grandfather and his mother settled in New Jersey when he was younger. The last he had ever seen of them was in 1956, after his mother was pregnant with him.
I don’t know if my parents have memories of their parents, but my grandparents certainly did. My grandfather was in the military during World War II. His wife married him in 1942 and after the war, in 1942-1944 when they had three children, they moved to the Bronx, because it was the only place safe for the kids in the refugee camps. They moved back to India in 1947 and returned to our neighborhood when they were fifty-eight. They lived on the Lower East Side and then in the Bronx as elderly persons. My father had three older brothers and the youngest sister was born in Pakistan in 1955 (I don’t know her name). My father was sent back to Europe in 1958 to marry my grandmother and to start over on the job of an accountant. I am sure that my father and my grandmother stayed in contact through the years with each other through letters and mail, through telephone calls and in person. My family did not have an agent, a phone number or letters either in India or in the U.S. They did not know each other well in America at all. I am sure of that because of my grandmother’s absence by so much.
My parents were not wealthy or well-compensated. I think they had been raised in the family business and were never able to take advantage of any opportunity that came up along the way. They were very proud of my grandfather. He came from the business world, as did my mother. They had a big family and were in the family business. A lot of young people in India may have worked in the family way. My grandmother was the most influential person in my family in terms of her own development of ideas and her contributions to the business.
