A Letter To Shilpa
Amarjit Bhambra


Welcome to our World,
Welcome to Britain,
It no big deal that one could not
Say your name,
Its happens all the time,
Here in Britain.
With the British Asian.
We are often known via “knick
Names”,
It's so common here.

"Stock cubes? And chicken?”
Fighting loggerhead,
Who would know that a stock cube
and chicken,
will cause a racial commotion,
Dear Shilpa,
Curry is the favorite dish
In Britain,
One can only say,
That one had a chip on one's shoulder.
I agree with you,
"Not all five fingers are the same".

It happens all the time,
Here in Britain,
We lived through it,
Bullying,
Not just amongst the Asian,
But others too,
But l am glad to say that l as
British,
And like you say,
"Everyone’s blood is red".
I agree with you,
For you are wise and kind to forgive,
And keeping your self respect above
Your head,
You make us proud to say that we are
Glad that we are Asians.

'Not all five fingers are the same",
However, there are lots and lots of nice
English people in Britain.
We live in peace and harmony.

When you go back home,
Do think about your brothers
and sisters,
Here in Britain!
With support from everyone
Here in Britain,
We hope you enjoyed your stay,
Shipla winning has made our day.
