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.

Loved this podcast so much-its a great combination of comedy and thoughtful observation. Every Sri Lankan who has been raised in another country should listen to this!
