The template of Australian multicultural ethos is found in its people, especially those who have made this country their home coming from every corner of the world. Their different cultures, languages and thoughts have become the social layers of multicultural Victoria and Australia. Aussie Indian actress, dancer and writer Ria Patel is one who is firmly embedded in this diverse cultural pot puree.
“People always tell me how much they love chicken tikka and I say I’m from a different part of India and our cuisine is completely different, they look at me baffled”, says Ria. She says people here are unaware of how diverse India is and that is where I show my expertise.
