The more supportive communities are of parents, the better life is for children. In earlier times we had a village, but for various reasons we now live in a world that doesn’t necessarily support parents and people without extended families.
My Mother India is a humorous and deeply engaging documentary by Safina Uberoi about her parents — her Australian mother, a sociologist, and her Indian Sikh father, who moved to India soon after their marriage. There they brought up their three children and survived the anti-Sikh riots of 1984. The film is made up of new and historical footage, family photographs, and interviews with the family, notably Safina’s mother, Patricia.
