The Indian Influence

Durban is currently celebrating Diwali (festival of lights) and the 150th anniversary of the first Indians brought to South Africa.

These people were brought here a cheap labour to work in the sugar cane fields, and over the years have become a significant community in Kwa-Zulu Natal.   Mahatma Gandhi had a significant impact on the recent history of South Africa, before he returned to India.

I don't know if this is a new road in the new development, or a re-named road in the re-developed area, all I know is that this part of the point has been significantly upgraded over the past few years.
