Unveiling shreds of genealogy and discovering the roots are a recurrent dream of every descendant whose inheritance is linked to the gravy train of slavery, convictism, indentured labour,boat people and asylum-seekers.
This book is a graphic account of rural Indian peasants who left their rustic homeland in search of their El Dorado in distant colonial outposts. Interwoven with reflections in his Aryan roots and his animated days in Bombay (now Mumbai), the author describes his quintessential journey in 1961 to his ancestral village near Nepal-India border.
