Book Description

Jan. 1 2000
Indians have lived in the Caribbean for more than a hundred and sixty years, ever since they took to the ships to work on the sugar plantations. Jahaji (the term meaning "ship-traveler") brings together a representative selection of Indo-Caribbean fiction from three generations of writers from Ismith Khan through Rooplall Monar and Cyril Dabydeen to Marian Budhos and Shani Mootoo. Together, the sixteen writers included here give us an imaginative depiction of the experiences of their people across a span of fifty years - the hopes, aspirations and frustrations of life in colonial Trinidad and Guyana, the post-independence tribulations of third-world citizens and the quest for meaning and identity in the second migration to Canada, the United States and Britain.

Contributors:
Ismith Khan, Elahi Baksh, Jan Shinebourne, Sharlow Mohammed, Madeline Coopsammy, Narmala Shewcharan, Harishchandra Khemraj, Sasenarine Persaud, Cyril Dabydeen, Rooplall Monar, Marina Budhos, Christine Singh, Shani Mootoo, Rabindranath Maharaj, Rajne Ramlakhan, Raywat Deonandan.
