Asian Indian Heritage Project
Western Reserve Historical Society
Part of a series of interviews documenting the unique immigrant experience of Asian Indians in northeast Ohio and explore issues of professional, family, and religious life. This is the second of two videos depicting this interview. Om Julka was formerly a British India army officer during his life in India. His interview is sectioned into his childhood spent traveling Punjab due to his father's career dealing with the railroads, time in the army, and his time since coming to the United States to take care of his grandchildren and his global travels throughout this time. Mr. Julka also discussed entire familial immigration and the racial and social branching of his family as a result. He addressed current issues between India and Pakistan, asking for a resolution of issues to bring the people of both countries together as they were before the Partition.
