Pralav Dhyani survived 11 months captivity on MV RAK Afrikana, which was hijacked off Seychelles by Somali pirates on 11 April 2010. The ship was held 332 days and finally released on 8 March 2011. Mr. Dhyani subsequently wrote a paper about the experience, which can be read here.
Mr. Dhyani was approached about the interview by one of the show's producers - indicating that there is enough public interest in piracy survivors that CBC thought it would make a strong topic for a show. That's an encouraging development, and the show's airing tomorrow should add to that public interest.
Try to catch the show, and let others know about it. Write in to The Current website with comments, too, if you have them. Share your own thoughts and experiences. The general public all over the world has so little understanding of this issue that I feel opportunities like this one shouldn't be wasted. And comment here, too, to let us know what you thought of the interview!
