Baki Travel on In 2008 and 2009, the more recently arrived Indian students began to stage spontaneous protests and sit-ins in reaction to violent attacks on them, exploitive work conditions, and the attempts of some of the higher education providers and colleges to extract extra fees by delaying their academic progress (Neilson 2009). These protests, which eventually spurred the Australian government to change its policy on student paths to permanent residency, gained wide media coverage in Australia and India, especially when the racial aspects of the violence were splashed all over the subcontinental media sphere. Although the second-generation Indian Australians were of the same age and ostensibly the same ethnicity of the protesting students and workers, the social and temporal barriers between them were manifest. At stake were a whole series of class and caste differences as well as worries about whether the hard-won standing of the Indian community within business circles and the national consensus of multicultural politics would be damaged by the angry and disrup-. tive character of these protests by Australia’s new proletarians (Thompson and Rosenzweig 2009). Temporal borders were clearly operating in the uneasy and mutually suspicious relations between these groups. Here we see how the worldng of time through different generations and successive migratory movements divides and stratifies migrants within wider vistas of citizenship and also divides them from each other, even when they occupy to all extents and purposes the same age group.
