Integration 'not an issue' anymore


The census figures were released this week, revealing that one in eight of the population of England and Wales was born outside the UK, and the most common birthplace was India, accounting for 700,000 people.

Today's Zubeida Malik spoke to three generations of Indians in the UK about how integration has changed over time.

Surinda Varma, who moved to this country during the 1960s said it was "extremely difficult" to integrate, describing himself as "adventurous" for going into central London.

Aditya Fernandes, a student who has recently come to this country from India to study, says that integration is "not an issue" anymore. Adding that people can live and dress the way they want to without judgement.
