Example text

My work with cultural differences had naturally led me to becoming involved in antiracism as I saw this as the underlying issue. I became an activist, fighting for gender and race equality alike. This work was instrumental in getting me to a position of deputy headteacher of a school with virtually no native English-speaking children, consisting mainly of pupils from the Pakistani community and a smaller number from other minority groups – Ukrainian, Polish and Latvian. In this post, a few months before my brain haemorrhage, I had initiated and organized what was hoped to become a fairly major oral history project which involved pupils from two schools doing interviews in the community and publishing their work in a range of media.

I was having trouble coping with the school at the foothills of the Himalayas and argued with my mother. I convinced her to let me go back to Strabane to live with my father, until I turned 14. Without his wife, however, Pitaji had become increasingly frustrated, angry and more violent at being isolated and in fact became mentally disturbed. He made the decision to go back to India. He entrusted my care, and that of my sister (who had returned unmarried from India), to one of his four elder daughters.
