In this powerful and compelling conversation ex-footballer Krish Patel shares how making a childhood dream an actual lived reality stopped short when racism, identity and belonging highlighted a stark and difficult truth pushing him to question his purpose in the world.
Krish's story shows the dark side of racism and is a heart-felt exploration into his personal battles with his own identity, being of mixed Indian and White heritage, finding his calling and seeking wisdom to answer his purpose in life. It was through a chance discovery of a new perspective on life through Nichiren Buddhism where Krish's questions were given space to evolve.
This is a truly global story. One minute you will be in the North of England, then transported to Susanville California, Montgomery Alabama, Uganda, Iceland and back to England. Ultimately, this is a story of an inspirational being who lives his life sharing the power and potential that we all have within us.
Krish is a published author, podcaster and a speaker Krish set up Tales to Inspire to share stories of human potential and overcoming challenges in the face of difficulties and adversity.
