Arms opened for refugees 10 years ago
On one wall of Tulshi Gu- ragai’s living room, there are certificates from La Trobe University. On the other are paintings of Hindu deities.
Just as two cultures have equal pride of place in this Wodonga home, so too do they in Mr Guragai’s heart.
His past and his future – a young boy displaced from his home, now a profession- al and father of two – have merged to form his identity.
Mr Guragai is grateful to call Albury-Wodonga home, a sentiment shared by 1500 Bhutanese people living here – who are celebrat- ing 10 years of settlement this month.
