This Week on Being Indian? K-Word and Cultural Appropriation

This Week on Being Indian? K-Word and Cultural Appropriation

We take a look at a couple of different issues centred around Malaysian Indians. On the first half of the show, we discuss the K-word. Recently, women’s singles shuttler, S. Kisona, represented Malaysia in the Sudirman Cup. During her match against the Japanese's Akane Yamaguchi, a Malaysian politician from Bersatu took to Facebook to make an absolutely disgusting statement. He said, “from which estate did BAM pick this ‘k**ing’ from, to represent Malaysia?”  

On the second half of the show, we discuss the recent Foodpanda advertisement. Foodpanda recently released an Indian cinema-musical themed advertisement ahead of Deepavali celebrations. The problem is… there isn’t a single Indian talent in the advertisement.
