"I’m not Indian enough for my parents, but I’m not Western enough for North American society. No one will accept me calling myself Canadian, but on the other side of the world, no one will accept me calling myself Indian. Because of this exile from the mainstream society, I identified with punk, the subculture that says, 'Fuck it all, just do you.'"
