Tshque Harcharan

Tshque Harcharan has had the distinct honour of living in two South Africas—one that unjustly divided the peoples of the country racially and the other that gave the majority dignity and freedom. His writings reflect his experiences during these two periods. He is currently reading for a degree in Mechanical Engineering at UKZN, however poetry is his passion.

In his poem, who am i?, Tshque muses on Indian identity in Africa.

Harcharan, Tshque. 'who am i?', in Rob Pattman and Sultan Khan (Eds.), Undressing Durban (Durban: Madiba Press, 2007), p. 370.
