My Indo-Western Fusion Life

(Santa Claus depicted in Phad style- this is a style of Indian folk art)

I dabble in a bit of this and a bit of that

Mostly in the middle is where I’m at

“This” is the culture that now surrounds me

“That” is the culture in which I’m rooted deeply

“This” represents core American values

“That” is the spectrum of Indian hues

That color my life from inside out

Neither of these I can do without..


Being in the middle as a privilege I view

I can turn any way I want to

I can travel along a spectrum entire

From Indian to American, as my heart desires

I can experiment with food, clothing, music, art

“Fusion” is of my life an essential part

Elements from both identities I blend

Creating something more unique than I intend


East is east and west is west, they said

And never the twain shall meet- instead

I thrive at the meeting of east and west

From each one I try to take the best

And fuse them together in ways that are new-

My fusion life is an innovative one too
