With summer in full swing, I’m excited to share our July issue, which is filled with an especially strong batch of reported profiles and stories.

My favorite is a touching essay from Jinansh Shah, whose cricket club, the Detroit Royals, has spent the last three years playing in honor of their late teammate Dhairya Lalani, who was killed rescuing people from the 2017 Kamala Mills fire in Bombay. “We aren’t winning every match,” Shah writes. “We haven’t won any tournament. But as a team, we’re closer than ever.”

With a buzzy Cricket World Cup in the backdrop, the Royals’ story is a humbling reminder of the reasons we play and enjoy sports — not necessarily for the glory, but for that feeling of purpose and camaraderie. It might be every man’s dream to meet a cricket legend like Sachin Tendulkar, Shah says. But for the Royals, their most special moment was being visited by Dhairya’s parents.

With questions or feedback, please be in touch at editor@theindianscene.com. We’re also always considering ideas and submissions for reported pieces, cultural criticism and well-researched commentary relevant to metro-Detroit’s Indian-American community.
