This study undertakes a socio- cultural analysis to examine how the twice migrated Hindustani identify with both the societies, that is, ancestral India and the Netherlands as home. The paper aims to facilitate a disaggregated understanding of how the PIOs perceive their ‘Indian identity’, being part of the Indian Diaspora and their level of engagement with India. More specifically, the paper deals with the present generation of twice migrated Hindustanis who were born in the Netherlands to one (or both) parents who belong to the first generation Surinamese Hindustanis either born or migrated from Suriname (Indian origin).
