Exploring Indian Life in The UK

 
“Indian!”
— Mr 'Everything Comes From India'
 
 

Indians have been in the UK since the time of Queen Victoria. Goodness Gracious Me was created in the late 90s. It took that long to get a bit of popular representation. Still, better late than never. This was one of the best Indian comedy shows.

There are four main actors supported by a cast of minor characters, who play out various sketches depicting life for Indians in the UK. There are also spoofs from popular culture with Indians substituted into the situation.

Shows like this should be done everywhere in the world where there is a significant Indian diaspora. Such shows should also get a new season every decade or so to reflect the changes that have occurred since the last season.
