PMB brothers inspire pride

2007-12-08 00:00

A WEBSITE that celebrates Indian culture and is said to be the fastest growing interactive Indian website, was launched on December 1 by two Pietermaritzburg brothers.

Jeremiah Padayachee, a computer science lecturer and software developer at Alexandra High School, and Jude Padayachee, a manager at Avec’s import and export shipping company in Durban, said the idea was born out of a passion to celebrate Indianism.

They both said it was especially designed because there was no professional site that celebrates Indian South African culture and food.

Aptly named Proudly Indian (, the site has been visited by thousands of users from around South Africa and the world since its launch and from a single registered user grew to over 100 in just four days.

To date, users with ages varying from 18 to 57, have emerged from London, Chicago, Johannesburg, Durban and Bloemfontein.
