Namaste New Zealand (14) - Series Two, Episode Six

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2018

A diverse range of Indian migrants talk to presenter Kadambari Raghukumar in this 2018 episode of Namaste New Zealand. Raghukumar interviews Ranjna Patel, ONZM, about setting up Gandhi Nivas, an organisation helping to reduce domestic violence for all ethnicities in Auckland. Prerna Sinh is a computer programmer by day but by night she's DJ Charli, incorporating Bollywood music into her sets. Another story showcases Ecobags NZ, an Indian-owned business that works with environmentally friendly materials. The show ends with a lesson on how to make sweet snack unniyappam.

When a little girl sees Mum being hit by Dad and Mum not saying anything, it's normalised and the boy thinks, 'Well, Dad did it, and Mum didn't say anything'. So that cycle of violence is what we have to break.
– Ranjna Patel, founder of domestic abuse organisation Gandhi Nivas
