While Sherman and Ray Tan both have ancestors who came from China, our friend G. Devarajah traces his roots back to Kalingapatnam, in Andhra Pradesh, India. He is what’s called a “Chitti,” a descendant of South Indian traders who arrived in Malaysia as early as the 15th century and intermarried with the native Malay community. G. Devarajah’s own family arrived in Malaysia in 1414.
