“I want people to know that success can come even amidst difficulties,” says Gupta. “It was important for me to capture not only my family history but a story that truly showcases the struggles faced through migration across multiple generations.”

How often do we lack a sense of belonging?

In his new book, The Guptas, accountant and South African native, Fred Gupta’s story highlights his unique family history of migration and poverty; he creatively expands it into a story about conflicts from India, to South Africa to the United States.

“I want people to know that success can come even amidst difficulties,” says Gupta. “It was important for me to capture not only my family history but a story that truly showcases the struggles faced through migration across multiple generations.”

Like many families from multiple backgrounds, Gupta understands how it feels to lack a sense of belonging especially with his grandfather being from India and his father from South Africa. As he transcended from living in a small rural town in South Africa, to being a successful accountant owning his own firm, he realized the importance of understanding the parallels of struggles faced by multiple generations.

“This is more than just a fictional adaption of my family history,” Gupta says. “It is a dynamic and engaging story that I hope will capture a glimpse of issues faced across generations”
