Product description

'Melbourne Magpie' represents Indian migrants to foreign countries where they dream of having a better standard of living and disciplined working conditions than at their point-of-origin. Nevertheless, it is always a struggle to merge into cultures of the host country, for ethnic lifestyles, religious practices and culinary tastes of migrants do not easily draw a parallel. Melbourne Magpie is a typical story of cultural integration of emigrants to Australia and in the course, how new relationships are being formed, marching towards a global village. The bird Magpie symbolizes black and white, two shades of human character – one secretive within oneself and the other to deal with surrounding world.
