Diepiriye writes about his trip to Delhi and about the relationship between Indians and Blacks in his Myspace blog:
Just like in most of the colonial world, the whims and desires of the colonial masters determined which Indians would encounter which Africans- and this has unfortunately led to a great deal of conflict and mistrust amidst a people who ultimately must engage one another, even if only for commerce. Nonetheless, there is a lot of mutuality shown by the way that both African and Indian Diasporas lend and borrow cultural traditions, or in many cases, develop whole new cultural traditions.
