TEDxDoiSuthep - Mohezin Tejani - Global Nomads Bridging Gaps Between Cultures

Mohezin Tejani, an Indian-Shia Muslim by ancestry, is a political refugee from Idi Amin's Uganda and an award-winning writer. Liberated from the confines of his own culture by political realities, he set out at the age of twenty-one to learn how to be rooted in the absence of a place to call home. Over the next three decades on the road, he worked with humanitarian agencies, learned a slew of languages, became a cross-cultural trainer, an impromptu comedian, and a great campfire storyteller. Through his writings—a bhangra dance across time and space—he deftly explores both geographical and psychological displacement. Yet it is precisely through such disorientation and a host of intercultural encounters that he has come to value and share with others what it means to be a global nomad. Mo currently resides in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
