To me, it means being connected to a grand complex civilization with at least the suggestion of ancient wisdom. It also means being a part of a global diasporic community that is at once a pillar of the mainstream and something apart. As someone who spends most of his time separate from those who look like me, being South Asian means being a member of a racial/cultural club whose members --at their best-- embody a tradition of family, erudition, intellect, mysticism, art and physical beauty. There is a currency of identity to be wrought from a South Asian heritage, the true value of which is yet to be fully realized.
