NICOSIA, Cyprus: The adage that Indian enterprises—Tata to the street vendor—can thrive anywhere in the world is proven in the tiny island of Cypress.

Despite the banking crisis, an Indian shop is thriving in the busy shopping bazaar in Nicosia, adjacent to the UN buzzer zone, which divides the Greek Cypriot portion from the Turkish sector. As in any urban center throughout the world, it is easy to spot some South Asian faces, local workers in the services or IT sector, shopkeepers and restaurant staff, and even tourists like myself.
