Young diaspora Asians live in multiple worlds – the world of their parents, the worlds of their friends, the world or work or college, the world of the media. Paradoxically, however much they rebel against their parents’ world (‘back home’ – wherever that is), as they follow their parents into work, marriage and parenthood many find themselves drawn back into that world. But it’s not just roots in the sub-continent. It’s more fundamental than that. Where do we all come from? And where are we going? Is there a purpose in life? How do we ‘connect’ with that purpose and with whatever power or will lies behind it? Which way do we look? Which spirituality do we choose?
Looking for Directions asks some of the ‘big’ questions of life. It offers a perspective yet allows the reader to learn for himself and form his own judgement and response. It helps him learn to test and evaluate the spiritual for himself.
