    Sembra un sardo lasciato al sole troppo a lungo, infatti. Come te.

    As far as I can find “Soni” is a surname which originates from the Soni caste in India. They are generally Gujarati or Punjabi.

    So he’s at least partially one of these groups. If anyone can find any more information nailing down which communities his father (in particular) or his mother come from, that’d be great.

    India is home to over 2,000 different ethnic groups and languages from four of the world’s major language families.
