By Harshi Syal Gill,Parvin D. Syal
This is a suite of ten tales exploring the broad canvas of the Asian Indian adventure in Kenya during the twentieth century. there's a panoply of humor, injustice, pathos, wonderment, exploitation and self discovery within the tales. The characters, whose lives are subtly, yet frequently dramatically, tormented by their atmosphere and the political weather in a altering nation, are usual of their origins, yet upward push to private triumph and go away a mark on society. In an period whilst the Asian Indian group lived mostly segregated from their Kenyan opposite numbers, their way of life and tradition are portrayed opposed to an African heritage. The tales go beyond linguistic and cultural adjustments regardless of being ensconced within the confines of close-knit households and an insular group. The early levels of the colonization of Kenya and the eventual sundown over the British Empire are sensitively portrayed.
