Publisher's Summary

Nazeem Hussain is a grown man whose Mum won't let him go to Sri Lanka. At least, not without her by his side. But he's just had a kid, and he's started thinking ahead to the questions his son might ask him one day, like, 'why are we brown?'

So Naz flies to Sri Lanka with the echoes of his Mum's protests in his ears.

Naz tours Sri Lanka at a pivotal time for the country, politically and culturally. A new government is elected while Naz is in the air, so he lands in a strange atmosphere of confusion and change. Under this government's previous reign, disappearances of minorities were rife, and as a minority Muslim in this country, Naz's Mum has good reason to be scared of what's coming for him. And in the face of a mountain climb, a battle with a lethal martial arts guru, the forces of black and white magic and a deathly curse, Naz should really be scared too.

Very entertaining and Insightful

This podcast was fun to listen to and I enjoyed the insights and the topics chosen. Nazeem definitely knows how to make any story funny.

Spellbinding throughout

Nazeem is not just a funny man, but a fantastic storyteller, and this is quite a tale. I was completely absorbed from the very beginning right to the final words. Didn’t want it to end. I hope there’s more like this!

Was hoping for some humour from Nazeem

Didn't get much of that but found it interesting to hear multiple statements where if the word white was replaced with black, brown or yellow there would be huge repercussions. Gave up listening to this during the third episode when it became obvious Nazeem is a privileged new Australian with an anti-white chip on his shoulder. Disappointing.

yeah?

i love learning about other countries, so hearing about Sri Lanka was great. Nazeem's humour is probably more for teens- not aiming high on wit, that's okay though. All seemed rehearsed or read/scripted.

Differences and similarities

Really interesting. Learnt a lot about Sri Lanka, things I was only vaguely aware of. Made me think on how people who grow up away from their familial origin can feel alien in both places alongside as feeling from them (I'm like this). Also how it can be positive.

nice light hearted entertainment

a light hearted look at a 2nd generations journey of discovery in his homeland. enjoyable to listen to but not really anything too in depth here.
