I have no idea why people get seriously offended when I ask this question. If it doesn't pertain to you, then ignore me.

Just one correction "Desi" does not mean Indian or refer to any other country/nationality as such. Desi means "local/native" derived from word Des = homeland.

Desi food would mean local/native food. ABCD/BBCD/CBCD are kinda oxymorons, but its funny way of saying "Hes one of us but born abroad"

The real irony is when a FOB marries a BBCD/ABCD/CBCD ... and then their kids growing up even more confused with some serious "issues"!!!

Salaams
I am moving to Zurich in a month or so, working for a large swiss bank, with my wife, both British Pakistani's
Wondering if you guys have a community thing going or something? If not let's build one, I lived in Dubai for 2 years too where there was a small community of brit paks that grew massive in my two years there, hopefully can do the same in zurich!

Re: Scottish born Pakistanis in Zurich

Hi
I am originally from Birmingham, and my wife from Gloucester, but I studied in London and have been there all my adult life, apart from a 2 year stint in Dubai.
So how many Britpaks here? Any community meetings or stuff that goes on? Or do we need to get that one started?!

Re: Scottish born Pakistanis in Zurich

Hello,

I am originally from Geneva, and my husband's from England. I did my undergraduate in Manchester and then worked in London for 2.5 years before moving to Zurich a few month ago.
-I hear from the Pakistani community in Geneva that there is a huge Pakistani community here. I haven't met anyone yet though.
Reading back on your post i was wondering whether you guys managed to organize anything yet?
