    Bradford

    Can anybody please enlighten me on the lifestyle of Bradford desis? Is it really paindu as depicted in this article or provided that these desis have been here from the 1950s i'd think they'd be a little more modern and open minded after all that time. Just interested I like to learn of new society. Can u please confirm if the article is a true representation of society in terms where urdu is considered really modern and 80% of the people wear niqab. I think its so interesting. And can somone post pics of the really desi places just wanna see! thanks.

        There's plenty of ducks from UK, give it 24 hrs, and they'll show up ... not alot of peepz are as visible as they are in later hrs.

            I haven't read the article yet, but I find Bradford to be backward in the sense that it has a village like feel to it iyswim. Everyone knows each other (bridari system)......and there isn't much in the sense of employment/opportunities. However, it is warm and welcoming!

                When I was kid, I visited bradford in the 1980's many times. Back then, it was a mainly a Sikh majority area but gradually as 2nd generation Sikhs became richer they moved out and these days it's mostly poor pakistani punjabis.

                And yes, bradford desi exist in a delayed time zone. Most of them (including the 1st generation Sikhs) came straight from the pind.
                However, Sikhs assimilated while pakistanis have preferred to remain isolated.
